"A couple of passionate runners for running, racing, bling, and each other"

Mark and Lissett Lineberry - About the Running Couple

Our Story

At the insistence of their trainer, and without any running experience, Mark and Lissett Lineberry ran their first 5K in January of 2013 and it took nearly an hour. Unphased by their performance, this running couple finished over 150 races between them over the next few years, totaling nearly a thousand race miles through the marathon distance. It’s the love of the run, and helping others, that led to The Running Couple Podcast.

Mark and Lissett were married in 1999, and have four children. Mark is a business owner in the DC suburbs, and Lissett is a dedicated mom who also works at their kids’ school. Upon training for and finishing her first marathon in October 2015, several of her friends approached her asking how she did it. Inspired by a desire to help, she became a certified run coach through Road Runners Club of America. In 2016, she became a fun run lead through her local running store, and a year later was asked to become a run coach at her local gym of a nationwide chain. Together, Mark and Lissett always want to inspire others with their stories and experiences of others.
