This is the last week runners prepare for Grandma's Marathon. Months of training go into preparing for race day so taking it a little easier on the last week before the marathon is what experts say is key to be in the best shape and avoiding injury.
Minnesota championship runner Gabriele Grunewald died at the age of 32 Tuesday, according to her husband, Justin Grunewald. Gabe, as she was known to many, won a Minnesota Mile title in Duluth back in 2013.
Shoes will be collected at Toyota dealerships in Duluth, Superior, Virginia, and Ashland during business hours until June 24th, the end of Grandma's Marathon weekend. All shoes collected will go to the Goodwill of Duluth.
