Big congrats to Alison Thurber for reaching her goal of sub-3:15 at Grandma’s Marathon. Alison’s official time was 3:14:18, almost 5-minutes faster than her previous best set last year. More impressively, she did it running almost perfectly even splits (1:37:08/1:37:10)! [Full Results]
Grandma’s was a great race in all respects. A stunning location, ideal weather, and a flat, fast course. As a 38-year-old working mom I’m still not convinced my fastest times are behind me. The Run SMART Project training definitely served me well so I will continue to put the schedules to work.
