Drinking with Boston Marathon Champ Des Linden

Drinking with Boston Marathon Champ Des Linden

It’s no secret that Des Linden is one of the world’s best long-distance runners. In 2018, she became the first American woman to win the Boston Marathon in more than 30 years. Her gritty performance that day through driving rain and high winds was one for the history books. She followed that up with two Olympic marathon appearances and then smashed the world record for the 50K distance in 2021. But what might be less well known about Linden is that she’s a big fan of bourbon.

On this episode of Fix Me a Drink, hosts David Wondrich and Noah Rothbaum chat with Linden about how she got into American whiskey, her new memoir Choosing to Run, and the podcast Nobody Asked Us that she co-hosts with fellow legendary runner Kara Goucher.

So pour yourself a bourbon and listen to this new episode of Fix Me a Drink. Cheers!
