This Patriot's Day we celebrate the amazing Des Linden's return to the Boston Marathon this October. In 2018 Des was the first female to win the Boston Marathon since 1985!
Des has been the first runner I remember really rooting for and if you don't recollect, weather conditions in 2018 were less than stellar.
Des also she just completed her first ultramarathon. She completed a 50K in 2:59:54 becoming the first woman to ever run that in under 3 hours and breaking the world record previously 3:07:20 held by Aly Dixon.
I'm so excited for the marathon to return this October 11th and I can't wait to cheer Des on again!
