Linda started off walking in 2006 as a way to get healthy and enjoyed being part of a walking group. To support a local charity, she signed up to participate in her first 5k in 2008. To her surprise, she found that her passion was running. Since that time she has done many 5ks, 10ks, half marathons, and full marathons, as well as two triathlons and a Dopey challenge in Disney World. She is a two time Boston qualifier. Her motto is run fast or run slow but never out run your love of running. Outside of running she likes to spend time with her husband and their two teenage boys.
