2012 Manchester City Marathon Race Recap by LBontherun Posted Wed 07 Nov 2012 12:15pm 2012 was almost the year of the marathon that wasn’t. Funny because it started off with so much hope and excitement. I had big goals for 2012 — one of which included running a 3:10 marathon. But then my knee injury happened and I spent Marathon Monday in Boston on the sidelines, just like I did in 2011. I was still dealing with that inj ... Read on »

Capital City Half Marathon 2012 by Meredith Posted Sun 06 May 2012 12:00am Maybe I should title this post "I wear tiny shorts."  (Hey, I'm a former gymnast and I can wear them so I don't care.)
