“Into every life a little rain must fall.” In the case of training for a race, you might say, “Into every run, a little ache or pain might happen.”
Injuries are common for first time and less experienced runners. How do you know when it’s serious or something you can work through?
Runners aren’t built by running alone. You can’t run everyday, so what do you do on “off” days?
That’s the focus of episode #8 of Getting in Gear with Josh and Erin.
For the past few weeks, we’ve been watching as Fargo Marathon director Mark Knutson trains a couple of less-experienced athletes on how to run a race.
If it’s a Saturday morning and you happen to stop into any coffee shop in Fargo-Moorhead you might just see a table full of smiling runners downing their morning coffee. Tracy Clow is one of them. The Fargo woman is an avid runner who finds inspiration running alongside others.
One of the most overlooked but essential elements of training for a race is what you do before and after your run. Stretching and cooling down properly help you resist injury and increase your fitness level.

Fargoans Josh Thomas and Erin Mayer are in week #2 of training to run the half-marathon and 10K races respectively at the Fargo Marathon.
