As the weather warms up it’s time to re-examine running clothes. Gone are the multiple layers and mittens, it’s time to lighten up. In this week’s Getting in Gear with Josh and Erin, Fargo Marathon Director Mark Knutson looks at spring/summer running clothes while Go Far Woman director Sue Knutson gives you tips on buying a running bra.
The guesswork has gone out of training. Today’s technology makes it easier than ever to train for a race. In today’s episode of “Getting in Gear with Josh and Erin”, Fargo Marathon Director Mark Knutson gives our runners pointers on the best high tech gadgets to use.
“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?
Somebody’s got to be the last guy to finish a race.
For Saturday’s Fargo Marathon, that guy was Bill Keen of Cedar Lake, Ind.
Keen’s time for the 26.2-mile course was 6:52:38, just under the 7-hour cutoff time for this year’s race.
FARGO – Drivers are urged to allow extra time to reach their destinations during Fargo Marathon events Friday and Saturday. Several roads will be closed, and traffic numbers will be higher than usual, affecting travel throughout Fargo, according to a release from the city.
FARGO - Mark Knutson is a race director, not an economist, but he knows that when demand is high and supply is low, prices will probably go up.
And as the head of the Fargo Marathon, that has him nervous.
Knutson said he has received complaints, mostly from out-of-state runners, of higher-than-anticipated hotel prices for the marathon weekend of May 19. It’s not what was inferred in 2010 in Runner’s World magazine when Fargo was named the “Best Value Marathon” in the country.
FARGO – Officials of this spring’s Fargo Marathon are hoping more runners – even walkers – will help them raise enough money to provide 1,000 kids in the Fargo-Moorhead area with a pair of running shoes.
