Lindsay Flanagan is on the show today fresh off of her 9th place finish at the World Championships marathon in Budapest! This was her fourth fastsest marathon of her career. She has run 17 marathons total!

Lindsay has had an incredibly successful last few years of racing. She ran a PR at the Gold Coast Marathon in 2:24:23 which was also a course record there! She ran 3 marathons in 7 months last year. Lindsay is sponsored by ASICS.
