Obstacle Running Adventures

Obstacle Running Adventure follows the journey of the MStefano Running team. This team participates in obstacle course races, road running, and everything in between. We strive to push ourselves and others to step outside of their comfort zones and try something new.

Apr 3, 2023

A few months ago we mentioned Des Linden's book "Choosing to Run" being available on preorder in quick news.  We were sent an advanced copy of the book back in February and we really enjoyed it!

We were also given the chance to have Des on the show to talk about it.  This is technically our second time having her on the show but last time was just for a few minutes when we covered the Falmouth Road Race.

This time we talk about her feelings of having the book being ready to be sent to the masses, what makes a good coach both in sport and life, her experience returning to the Boston course after the bombing, thoughts on food as fuel, music, and much more!

In case you haven't already, consider ordering a copy as it's a great story about an incredible athlete!
