GRANDMA'S MARATHON RESULTS
CONGRATULATIONS to DREA and TIM STRAND!! Drea ran 2:53 and Tim ran 2:44 on a hot day with 20mph headwinds! These are truly great performances and show Tim is more than capable of sub 2:40 and Drea an olympic Trials Qualifier sub 2:47...the key now however is to concentrate on improving biomechanics and getting away from the marathon for a while and improve speed at 5k and 10k distances. Far too often we tend to get stuck in the marathon after marathon cycle and then wonder why we run the same times and then get slower and injured. (hint hint :)
I mention this in this context as it's a lesson to all no matter what level runner you are.
