My husband and I are running the Charlevoix marathon on June 23.
Memorial day weekend we did a 14 mile training run in Charlevoix which was nice to be able to run on the race course. This coming weekend we will have a 20 mile training run and we are going to do this on the White Pine Trail in Rockford. I am a planner so I have already bought G2 and decided where I am going to drop it along the course. I am glad that it is supposed to be in the mid 60s, 20 miles is enough of a challenge without also having to endure the heat. I am also excited for my husband because this is his first marathon and this weekend will be the longest he has ever run.
My whole family will be at the marathon. I love hearing them cheer for me. This is a very small race, a few hundred people run the full marathon, so there are not a lot of spectators. This time I am going to have my 12 year old son and my 9 year old daughter cross the finish line with me. Are any other champions doing a marathon this summer?
