Brooks’ Chief Running Advisor
Des Linden’s approach to running is relatable and real, making her an inspiration to runners of all levels — that’s why we’re proud to call her our Chief Running Advisor.
In this role, she’s an integral part of the development process as Brooks pushes the boundaries in technology and innovation, particularly in our BlueLine Lab. She also sits on the Inspiring Coaches Program Panel to engage run crews as our brand ambassador.
As always, Des is an advocate for all runners and continues to encourage everyone to keep showing up.
What gets you out the door on tough days?
I think about my ultimate goal. The only way to get there is to put in the work — no excuses. Also, unboxing a new pair of shoes or gear definitely helps.
How did you start running?
It was a soccer survival tactic.
What makes your journey special?
I am the tortoise. My career path started much closer to the everyday runner. I have chipped away year after year and eventually reached the upper echelons of running through consistency, hard work, and patience.
