Get Motivated! Attend Gearing Up For Grandma’s
It'll happen to me again this year....I'll keep putting off "serious" training until it's almost too late, then I'll feel inadequate on race day.  Need motivation?  Need suggestions on how to train?  First time and don't even know where to st…
Hilarious Video Of Thoughts During A Marathon!
I know a lot of marathon runners, and I can say that I'm not one of them.  I have covered Grandma's Marathon with our sister station WEBC and heard a lot of these stories, and I have done some running for several miles so I can relate up to a point.  This video is hilarious! …

I love stories about kids doing good things. The stories you hear about kids these days are only about a few that spoil it for the many. This is a story about a Minnesota boy.

Easily Amusing Exercise
Sometimes it's a little difficult to find a way to burn off the energy that a 3 year old has.  I don't know where it comes from, but I'm sure that if we could somehow tap into that energy, our energy crisis would be taken care of.  Zach wanted to do a race, so using a microw…
22nd Annual Fitger’s 5K Run/Walk This Saturday, April 16
The weather forecast for this Saturday, April 16, is calling for cold temps and snow. Not exactly ideal for the 22nd Annual Fitger's 5K Run/Walk, but the race, like the postal service, will go on despite the weather.....unless there's lightning. There is a record 1, 739 participants this year, a f…

Time To Start Training for Grandma’s
Whether you are running the Fitger's 5K, the William A. Irvin 5K, Grandma's Half or Full Marathon, the time has come!  I can actually say I'm NOT a fair-weathered runner anymore.  I bundle up and run when it's below zero, and run in the rain (actually preferred because I stay cool).   If you ARE a f…

It's been rumored that I run Grandma's Half Marathon every year just to get out of broadcasting that day.  Honestly, my co-workers put in a day that involves more energy and stamina than if I were to run the full marathon!
