Leah and Malinda are identical twins and masters marathon moms.
We deemed ourselves "Twins Run In Our Family" so we could share our experiences running together while supporting causes we care about like Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer.
Since 2012, we have helped raise $2,757 to support Alex's Lemonde Stand Foundation in memory of our grandmother, GG, and Leah's brother-in-law, Michael.
Leah, the faster 1/2 of @TwinsRun, has qualified for the Boston Marathon (BQ) 4 times and finished 3 Boston Marathons (2013, 2014 and 2015).
Malinda, the slower 1/2 of @TwinsRun, is still trying to BQ after several unsuccessful attempts.
Malinda made her 6th attempt at the rainy Rock 'N' Roll DC Marthon on 3/14 (3:54:58) and her 7th attempt at the windy Charlottesville Marathon on 4/4 (4:19:12) and her 8th attempt at the muggy Rivanna Greenbelt Marathon on 9/12 (4:23:02).
Malinda didn't reach her 2016 BQ goal (3:45) but you can still help her reach her fundraising goal ($345) to support Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation!
Malinda hopes to reach her 2017 BQ goal (3:55) at the Philadelphia Marathon on 11/22 and her fundraising goal, too.
No donation is too small to fight childhood cancer - donate $2 (or more) online!
Have you tried multiple times to BQ? Have you run to support a charity?
