Tonight's Runner In The Spotlight was Linda! First off, Linda was awarded the partying, hard-working, jet-setter bunny slippers from Mike for her continuing steady work and improvement in her running. I took a few minutes to visit with her to find that she has only been running seriously since just before the start of the year. One of her first runs with our group, Coach Kathy had suggested she run 3 miles, and Linda got a little confused with the mile posts, and ended up running 5 miles instead. At that time, Kathy said she was ready to train for a half marathon! Linda has ran a few 5Ks with a PR of 31 minutes flat at the Aquarium Run, and ran a half marathon at OKC finishing in 2:46:50.
Linda almost always runs with her friends Jennifer and Rachel. She always has a smile on her face which is a sure sign that running agrees with her. Linda's dream race??? Someday, running a marathon in Maui! Let's plan a trip!!
New faces, familiar faces, great toes, and ????
