Each year that I run the Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon, I have friends that want to keep track of my progress. (that makes me laugh, but I appreciate their interest). I tell them it's easy to sign up for free live runner tracking through T-Mobile. You can sign up to track your favor…
I've run several Grandma's Half Marathon and I've seen them around me, they're known as "the pacer". To be exact they are a Clif Bar Pacer, they are free to follow and to many they are somewhat of a phenomenon. Here's why I am in awe of them.
I've run 14 Grandma's Half Marathons and the same thoughts run through my head every year as I get ready to leave the camper and climb on the bus to take me to the start. I've given you 19 thoughts, you give me the 20th!
So many people have apps they use to train and run to. Some people like to know the weather, what the wind speed is, what your heart beat is, so many things people use to get a personal best in order to get an edge.
Grandma's Marathon weekend is fast approaching, which means the roads are full runners training for their races. I have run about 11 Gary Bjorklund Half Marathons and being a creature of habit, I have my favorite places in the Duluth area to train each year.
Here we are, the 39th year of the Grandma's Marathon and Garry Bjorklund half marathon with Garry returning to celebrate the 25th year of the Half Marthon that bears his name. There are always things to remember when the marathon is run, for both runners and fans.
