Linda-Lou O’Connor

Linda-Lou started running in college, but didn’t start road racing until she moved to the DC area in 2010. It was there she started a bucket list of marathons, which included MCM, Boston, Big Sur, Chicago, and NYC.

She moved to Maryland in 2012 and joined the Howard County Striders. Since running with the Striders, she has improved on all her racing PRs from the 5K to the marathon. Linda-Lou was awarded the HCS New Runner of the Year 2013. She joined the racing team in 2015. That same year, she completed her bucket list of marathons. Since 2011, Linda-Lou has completed 15 marathons including Boston in 2012, 2013, and Boston to Big Sur in 2014.

Linda-Lou’s short-term goal is to qualify for the Berlin marathon. Her long-term goal is continue to improve her racing times, run competitively and healthy, and pass her love of running to her daughters.
