The Grand Rapids Marathon is about 3 weeks away! I am looking forward to running my fourth marathon. I ran this marathon last year and I really like the course and the cool weather.
My training has gone well despite the warm Michigan summer. I have followed my marathon training plan and completed all of the long runs. Last weekend my husband and I ran 20 miles on the White Pine Trail. We averaged 9:30 per mile, which is the pace of my fastest marathon. Going into this marathon I am very confident. I am not sure how fast I will be able to run, but to me having a solid training foundation is important to me mentally.
Are there any other champions running the GR Marathon?
