Carrie Tollefson plans to make her marathon debut at the 2013 Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon on October 6. The 13-time Minnesota High School State Champion, who has won multiple NCAA and USA Championships in her storied career, announced her plans in a video on her website CTolleRun.com earlier today.
“It is time for me to join the crazy group of marathoners and have some fun running the streets of the Twin Cities with everyone else,” the Dawson native explained. “I have loved representing this state at different running events around the world and it only made sense to try this event right here where my running career started. I am so excited to run, and scared at the same time.”
Three generations of the Tollefson family plans to run Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon Weekend events – from the Diaper Dash and Toddler Trot at the Medtronic TC Family Events, the TC 10K and TC 5K, presented by Fredrikson & Byron, and the Medtronic TC 10 Mile and the marathon itself.
With less than six month to go until the starting gun fires for the 2013 Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon, the field for the 12,200 runner event is more than half full.
