Malindi Elmore just broke the Canadian record in the marathon, running a 2:24:50 and placing 3rd at the Chevron Houston Marathon last weekend! Malindi has a long history in sport with a unique story of getting to the marathon.
She ran for Stanford in College under coach Dena Evans (who has been on this podcast!) and went on to run the 1500 in the 2004 Olympics for Canada. She retired from professional running in 2012 and picked up triathlon in 2015 and went pro after her first 70.3. She debuted the ironman with a sub 9 in a time of 8:57.
During this time she had two babies and just last year came back to running, debuting the marathon in a time of 2:32 in Houston last year just 7 months post partum. On year later she took 8 minutes off that time running the Canadian record in a time of 2:24:50.
Malindi has a full life with two kids, a coaching business and has a great team of support surrounding her. She is positive, uplifting and clearly a very hard worker. She simply loves to run and I love that about her.
