Leah and Malinda deemed themselves "Twins Run In Our Family" so they could share their experiences running together while supporting causes they care about.
Since 2012, Leah and Malinda have raised $3,054 to support Alex's Lemonde Stand Foundation in memory of their 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). Leah's application to run the 2017 Boston Marathon was just accepted on Monday, September 19!

1st attempt: 2013 Chicago Marathon (4:04:21)
2nd attempt: 2013 Philadelphia Marathon (4:04:40)
