Cheer on Desi Linden at the 2014 Boston Marathon


Hard work and a gritty race earned this Hansons-Brooks runner a top-10 finish at today’s Boston Marathon. After overcoming injury in the past year, Des ran an amazing 2:23:54 on a tough course against an impressively deep field. We’re proud of you, Des!


We’re all a part of the Boston Marathon this year, whether we’re out running the 26.2 miles or whether we’re cheering on friends, family and fellow runners.

That’s why we need your help in cheering on Hansons-Brooks runner Desi Linden as she puts it all on the line for the comeback of a lifetime at this year’s marathon.

Tweet your support using the #RunDesiRun hashtag. We turned some of the best tweets into a work of art to inspire Desi before she races.

But don’t stop there. Wish her good luck all the way up to the marathon because we’re randomly giving away 15 of those beautiful posters after the marathon.

Desi finished the 2011 Boston Marathon in a close second, setting an American record for the race in a time of 2:22:38. She soon after qualified for and then entered the 2012 Olympic Games, where a femoral stress fracture forced her out of the competition.
Since then, her recovery and training have led her to the start line at the Boston Marathon and we want to wish her good luck! Join us.
