10 Weeks Until Grandma’s Marathon

I’m a little late with this post….But the truth is… there’s been really no training.

I emailed the Run For the Lakes and tried to defer my half marathon until next year, and in return would volunteer where ever they needed help this year…unfortunately it didn’t fly.

I went on a 4 mile walk while in Florida over the weekend and had some soreness in my hip…but no knee pain. So my plan is to join the 2:30 half marathon pace group and see what I can do. Once I have pain I’ll start walking. I want to at least walk to the 6 mile mark if I can, but I’ll let my pain be the judge.

The weather is supposed to be 60 degrees or so, which would be amazing! So if nothing else hopefully I can wear a tank top and work on my tan!

If you want to join me…online registration closes at Midnight! You’ve got 5 hours! (and a little extra). Otherwise you can register the day before at the expo!



  1. Glad your knee is feeling better, I totally feel your pain (bad pun there haha) with getting injured before a race 😦 😦 I am glad you are still determined and have goals for your half marathon! You got it!

    1. Thanks! I actually switched down the 10k, I figure it will be slightly safer, plus I’m still hoping to make the marathon in June, so I don’t want to put too much stress on my body right now.
