When Teri Griege was diagnosed with colon cancer, she set three goals. One of those was to finish the Ironman World Championship.
74 days until Boston and the Women’s Running team is making progress towards the start-line of the historical race. With 11 weeks to go, Jessie and Kara share their logs and miles (take a look below for a preview!). . .
Jessie’s training log details the struggle of training while traveling. Though her busy schedule presented some challenges, she still managed to score a 5:48 mile (WOW!) and even did some extra cardio at a Macklemore concert. Before heading out on the road, Jessie made pre-hab a priority and displayed her “Ups” with some medicine ball slamming box jumps (check out the video!). . .
Kara’s training log includes four famous figures: Rihanna, Jay-Z, Peppermint Patty and Sir Issac Newton. While Rihanna and Jay-Z helped her turn up the speed, Peppermint Patty made sure she was nourished for her run and Sir Issac Newton kept her injury free. After a stellar week of training, Kara’s lead legs left her feeling a little down and seeking your advice (help a sister out!).
Don’t miss out on their adventures! Stay up-to-date with Jessie and Kara’s daily progress by checking out Marathon Mania!
