Des Linden

She won the Boston Marathon in 2018, set a 50K world record in 2020, and is racing the marathon again this year. So, yeah, she knows a thing or two about running.

Lightning Round

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.

In her own words

Like dogs? Love music? Des’ social media is filled with both, making us happy on a daily basis.

Meet Boston.

Yeah, Des’ dog is named Boston. That’s dedication. Any run is better with a four-legged friend. Especially when you’re training for a marathon.
