All of the 7,500-plus people who will be participating in Grandma’s Marathon this weekend have their their own personal reasons for taking up running and, more specifically, for deciding to dedicate long and grueling hours to preparing for the marathon itself.
For many runners, the overall motivating factor behind taking up the activity is health-related — a desire to lose weight, perhaps, or just to “get in shape.”
The decision to run a marathon, however, is often driven by a more specific reason. People may do it, for example, to mark a particular milestone, such as being cancer-free for five years or being on the brink of entering a new decade. (A team of New York University researchers found that a higher-than-statistically-expected proportion of first-time marathon runners have an age that ends in “9.”)
The annual Grandma’s marathon is scheduled Saturday, June 16. It is one of Duluth’s biggest events, attracting thousands of visitors each year.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation expects heavy traffic levels on Interstate 35 in the days prior-to and after marathon events, which officially begin Thursday.
raffic is restricted to a single lane in each direction and northbound ramps at Highway 7 are closed. Highway ramp traffic is being detoured onto the northbound I-35 ramps at highway 70 and Highway 11. Backups are expected.
To avoid traffic delays MnDOT encourages visitors to allow extra travel time, come early and stay late, and travel during off-peak times.
I started running in my early 30s, after my second child was born. I had a rather ordinary reason: I wanted to shed the (stubbornly) excess weight I had put on during that pregnancy.
I never ran Grandma’s, but I did finish two Twin Cities Marathons. My motivation for those runs was also rather mundane: I ran the first one because I wanted to see if I could finish the darn thing, and I ran the second because participating in the first one was so much fun. (And, no, “9” did not appear in my age when I ran either of them.
