70) Morgantown Marathon, Morgantown, West Virginia, Sept 16th 2018

Time: 3:27:56  Place: 12/168   We have friends in Morgantown who we hadn’t seen for years so this seemed a good excuse to see them and fit in another long training run, still with no goal race in mind.

64) Grant Pierce Indoor Marathon, Arlington, VA, June 24th 2018

Time: 3:14:53  Place: 2/10 My #Edinburgh24 training plan had me running 40km (24 miles) on the Saturday and 50k (31 miles) on the Sunday so running an indoor marathon seemed a good way to get the miles in whilst avoiding the heat.   Preparation Coming at the end of a one hundred mile training week… Continue reading 64) Grant Pierce Indoor Marathon, Arlington, VA, June 24th 2018
