Grandma’s Marathon Race Report

I’m going to start this race report with two lists. First, a list of lessons I learned. We’re all here for the takeaways, right? Don’t trust people who tell you races are flat. Always wear sunscreen. Don’t part your hair down the middle for marathons. Don’t skip the warmup ever ever ever. Go ahead and... Continue Reading →
