A Behind the Scenes Look at the Life of the Founder of a San Diego Running Institution
A Life In Motion, Lynn Flanagan
Lynn Flanagan, founder of San Diego-based event marketing and management company, In Motion Events, shares the early days of her career and all the decisions that led to her professional success. In addition to the amazing highs she has reached, she also includes the difficult and debilitating challenges she faced along the way. A chronic illness, the trauma of her abusive first marriage, and disingenuous people all plagued her, but Flanagan didn’t let any of it deter her. As she learned from her own running, the best thing she could do was keep moving forward.
In Motion Events produces the Carlsbad Marathon & Half, La Jolla Half Marathon & Shores 5K, America's Finest City Half Marathon & 5K along with a handful of other events for area non-profits.
Established in 1981, In Motion Events has produced thousands of events, and today is run by Lynn's daughters, Christine and Ellen.
The mission of In Motion is "to enrich lives by producing quality events and experiences that benefit our community."
This easy read tells the story of the heart and passion behind the company and helps readers understand how and why the company produces quality events.
