Grandma's Marathon is just a few months away so runners are working hard to get ready. A crowd of them got advice on how to train on Saturday at the Essentia Health Duluth Clinic.

Essentia Health brought in expert speakers for the Gearing Up for Grandma's event like Carrie Tollefson. Tollefson is an Olympic runner and will announce the race for ESPN this year. She said mental training is important too.

“I think in training you're not as nervous, you're not as excited, you're not thinking about everything that could go right and could go wrong, but marathon day is really about putting all that hard work to just going out there and having a fun day,” Tollefson said.

She recommends runners check out the Grandma's Marathon website for training tips.
