2011 Team: Lynn Curry

Lynn Curry
Age: 35
Owens Crossroads, AL

Brief Biography
I have been running since I was 5. I grew up in New Hampshire within a community of runners and it always came naturally to me. I went on to run competitively at Boston College and have been doing so up until now. Last year I became a member of the Fleet Feet Racing Team. Running has carried me through a variety of terrains and I have been fortunate to join teams and see many parts of our world through the sport. My first occupation was a teacher and I also had the amazing opportunity to coach high school cross-country. I've since received my BSN in nursing and currently am employed in private practice for a local physician. My husband Nate and I have 3 children; Conor (7), Chloe (5), and Quinn (3 months).

Short Term Goals
After the recent birth of my daughter, my short term goals are to become strong again and to increase my endurance and speed injury free. I would like to break 20:00 in the 5K and 43:00 in the 10K. I am running in my first 1/2 marathon in April; the Music City Marathon.

Long Term Goals
I hope to compete in my first marathon this year and qualify for Boston. I am also planning to train for the triatholon circuit again.
