Episode 148: Des Linden

2018 Boston Marathon Champion Des Linden joins me on the podcast today.  Des is one of the most consistent American Marathoners of all time.  She was chasing down her big W for over a decade and made it happen this past spring on an insane day at the Boston Marathon.

Beyond her epic Boston win, Des is a two-time Olympian in the marathon and also placed second at Boston in 2011, Chicago and the US Olympic Trials and she holds a marathon PR of 2:22:38.

Des recently had a coaching change and is running the TCS New York City Marathon this Sunday coming of a new and different type of training. She talks about taking risks and the excitement that brings to the start of another marathon. She is real. She is down to earth and you guys will feel that in our conversation.

Best of luck to anyone running the NYC Marathon, Monumental Marathon or any other race this weekend!
