Wheeeeeeeeeeew overslept this morning! Smoothie on the go. Thus, Throwback race post is early!
In case you missed it, check out my first post on a throwback race, Boston 2006!
Today’s throwback race is Grandma’s Marathon 2007
It was my second summer of ACE and I flew home from South Bend for the weekend. My friend Lindsey and I then drove up to Duluth around dinner.
The weather was pretty crazy as we drove up North!
In an effort to save some $$ we stayed in a dorm room at a local college. It was still $80 a night, minimum of 2 nights! $160 for this??
4 years later, still boggles my mind!
Lindsey took these pictures for me as I ran.
The race started super early and the weather was gorgeous. But as the race progressed, it got HOT. By the time I ended the temperatures were in the mid 80’s.
I finished! My time was 3:45…which was an 45 minutes faster than my 4:30 Boston time! I honestly don’t know what happened. It was only my second race so I still had no idea what I was doing–running wise. I just ran. Had fun. And yea, that was it! 🙂
Lindsey and me! My personal cheerleader. 🙂
I wrote on my arm! I haven’t done that in recent races and every time I finish I think, I have to do that next time! But then I always forget!
Having a little fun. 😉
Lindsey forgot where we parked the car so we walked around for a bit trying to find it. I remember I got a Subway sandwich to eat post race.
Finally found the car!
There’s usually a big party after the race. Lindsey and I didn’t stick around for it though. Next time I run it, I will!

Lindsey and I got back to the cities that afternoon. Then Molly and I then went out for a celebratory drink and dinner! Lindsey was working that night at The Liffey.
My hair was so short! And still pretty light!
Have a great day!
