Getting in Gear: Starting 10k & half-marathon training

Two Fargo business people are asking you to join them as they train for the Fargo marathon. Erin Mayer, 38, is a digital accounts manager training for the 10K. Josh Thomas, 33,is an advertising executive training for the half-marathon.

Starting today, you can see Mark Knutson, the founder and executive director of the Fargo Marathon, work with Thomas and Mayer to reach their goals. The training sessions are being recorded and will appear every Wednesday on their blog, gettingingear.areavoices.com. Knutson is also designing training plans for the 10K and the half-marathon. Those plans will also appear on the blog and are available for you to use.

Knutson will advise the two on running form, proper attire, shoes, nutrition and more. Thomas and Mayer are inviting you to run with them by voting for either “Team Erin” or “Team Josh.”
