Lindsey grew up near Cleveland, OH and spent her younger years swimming competitively. She specialized as a sprinter and competed for the University of Maryland. Excluding the periodic punishment run while on the swim team, Lindsey started running when she took up triathlons. She enjoys improving and getting to know a different breed of endurance athlete. Matias and Jarrin connected Lindsey with the GRC in 2008 and she is is actively recruiting women to join the team so the man/woman team ratio is not 20:1.
