Favorite inspirational quote: "Some days it just flows and I feel like I’m born to do this, other days it feels like I’m trudging through hell. Every day I make the choice to show up and see what I’ve got, and to try and be better. My advice: keep showing up." - Des Linden

  • Research Manager at US News & World Report
  • Favorite running memory is seeing 2:17:36 at the mile 26 clock in Indianapolis and knowing he would qualify for Trials as long as he didn't trip or collapse over the last 0.2
