St. Paul-Highland Moms on the Run franchise owner Stephanie Veldhouse ran the Twin Cities Marathon last Sunday. Crossing the finish line, she is pictured both last year and this year in KARE 11's photo feature "100 Amazing Ways People Crossed the Finish Line at the Twin Cities Marathon." The top photo was from 2016; the bottom from 2017. Read her story in her own words:
Ahhhh... that glorious moment you cross that finish line of the big event you've been working toward for so many months. It can feel like your training is over! But there's one more important consideration of your time and effort: recovering well.
Doing this the wrong way can not only lead to injury but it can have a negative impact on your next big event or even your next few casual runs.
