Meet the people behind TEAM #Run3rd

Our TEAM #Run3rd Captains are listed here.

• Sean Astin, TEAM #Run3rd Founder @SeanAstin

I love running. I'm 41 years old, I've been married 20 years and have three daughters. Every time I lace up my shoes, I know I'm doing something good for my life. Every time I sign up for a 10k or a marathon, I know that I'm setting a good example for my family. Every time I read a #run3rd dedication I know I'm doing something important. I always make sure to take in the scenery, to marvel at the beauty of the natural world while I'm running, but I can't help analyzing every mechanical detail of every practice and every race.  I thank heaven for my ability to run, it is a gift and what's more it's fun!

• Linda Iroff, TEAM #Run3rd Chronicler & Scribe @LindaofNote
I'm a geek whose hobbies include gardening, playing with ferrets, and noodling around on assorted Apple devices. I'm not a runner, though I do try to maintain a healthy, active lifestyle and recently starting walking. #Run3rd allows me to be part of a community with the simple goal of encouraging activities that benefit both body and soul, through running and by honoring and sharing the things that matter to others.
