AMR Trains #6: A DIY Marathon: What to Do with Cancelled Races

On a Thursday morning in early March, Meghan Vanasek, a mother of four in Durham, NC, got news that the Tobacco Road Marathon, her first 26.2, was cancelled because of the COVID-19 situation. On Saturday morning, Meghan ran her own marathon. Dimity chats with Meghan about:
·      The conflicting emotions she had when her race was canceled;
·      The alternatives she considered before plotting her own race;
·      How she set up her route and aid stations;
·      What helped her get through the tough miles;
·      And why this race, “was not at all what [she] envisioned, but in some ways, was better.”
