Training for the Boston Marathon is never easy because of this time of the year

As New England gears up for more storms, thousands of runners are gearing up for the Boston Marathon coming up Monday April 16. Libbi Gaiser is one of those runners training for the marathon. She is participating for the ninth time. Gaiser, age 51, has been following a rigid 18-week program, running 55 to 60 miles a week. She says the storms haven’t stopped her from continuing on with her training. “Knowing that you can hit ice, knowing there’s snow on the ground, knowing you’re going to hit winds of 40 miles per hour in your face,” Gaiser said. “That’s where your body can break down.” Gaiser said the repeated storms in March have complicated her training, but she says quitting wasn't an option. Libbi says she has a 21 mile run to complete on Saturday, so she’s hoping these storms don’t have too much of an impact. (03/21/2018) ⚡AMP
