  • Operation Covert Marathon - Race Recap

    By: Mandy Stoesz

    On a whim, I decided to register for my 11th full marathon in mid-March. Over the winter months I maintain a long run of 10-13 miles, so I had a good base built and figured I would give it a go.

    A little back story: After a spectacularly awful marathon experience at Twin Cities Marathon in October 2014, I had vowed to never race another open marathon;

    Ever again.

    You see, I have a love hate relationship with marathoning. I have been running since 2008, and did my first ...
