LeAnn Nguyen

LeAnn Nguyen has been running for many years, but she didn’t consider herself to be a runner until she qualified for the Boston Marathon a few years ago.

Starting Big

LeAnn ran her first marathon when she was 17, and she has been in love with the race ever since.

Before that marathon, LeAnn wasn’t a runner at all. But when her family decided that

Her family made an “outing” of the LA Marathon one year, and they began training a few weeks before the race.

LeAnn and her sister ran together and had a blast, and she hasn’t looked back!

To date, LeAnn has run over 25 marathons!

Running Boston

LeAnn’s annual goal is to continually requalify for the Boston Marathon.

LeAnn has run the historic race three times, and she calls it a race experience unlike any other. 

Each race has provided a different challenge for her, but she plans to keep going back for more as long as she can.

Why Keep it Up?

LeAnn never expected to be as successful as she is as a runner.

She was never the best student, athlete, or employee, but LeAnn has found her niche where she can truly excel!

Her constant improvement now serves as her motivation to keep pushing her limits as a runner.
