Fun Facts About Boston Marathon Winner & San Diego Native Desi Linden

posted by Anna Blake -

Desi Linden is the first American woman to win the Boston Marathon since 1985. Here’s some fun facts about the Chula Vista native.

1. She likes to kick back with a beer or some whiskey.

Running is fun but when you connect with the running community it's next level! Thanks to the Heuisler's and @dwilleyrw for a stellar race weekend. So great! #Repost @chrisheuisler (@get_repost) ・・・ Signing off from Traverse City. Time to celebrate. I don't have the proper words to describe how proud I am of David Willey. He gutted out those last 4 miles, but that's his story to tell, not mine. What an unbelievable effort. Thank you @des_linden for taking over. Seeing you on the course lifted our spirits every time and our sport is better with you in it. And thank YOU. All of your support meant the world to David (and me.) Add this race to your bucket list. You won't regret it. #tctcbayshore #moonshot #bq #beerforlifeforDesi

Image: that time we BaliedSoHard... but more importantly tomorrow I take over @chrisheuisler social media and commentate on his BayShore Marathon run -- give him a follow to tune in! Details 👇🏽 #repost ・・・ "Hey Desi! You and Ryan live in Michigan. Want to come to the race on Saturday and take over my Instagram? Basically you just get to make fun of me and my brother and running, in general. I'll buy you beer for life." Desi: "Probably not as funny as your brothers, but we're in." And just like that, an Olympic runner and her incredible hubby will be responsible for all content on Saturday starting at 7:15 am Eastern Time. This should be fun. (Josh Cox: maybe you commentate from afar?) #runwestin #tctcbayshore #desi #perfectpace

Please give @motivrunning a follow and join all the fun tomorrow. 🙌🏽

4. Lastly, she, her husband, and 2 other runners own a coffee company.

It’s time to spill the beans — @coffeebylt is live! Give us a follow on Instagram and Twitter to learn all about us, our drive to find the perfect cup of #coffee, and how you can get some of our specialty beans. ☕️
