Leigh makes sandwiches at the Neighborhood Cafe. Her sister, Lynda, is the barista. (A third sister wasn't there at the time.) They are both Brazilian-born ex-teachers who work in the family cafe.
In the 1980s Leigh and Lynda were part of a five-person family group that ran south-to-north across the entire USA from Naples to the Canadian border, four at a time, with the fifth driving the van.
The following year Leigh and Lynda and the other family runners ran east-to-west across the entire United States from Ocean City, Maryland, to San Diego, California. This time they ran relay style, four runners each day. The family ran about 60 - 70 miles a day.
