Employee Spotlight

Over the river and through the woods….

Thousands of runners took to the streets of Minneapolis and St. Paul on Sunday, October 7th for the 37th annual Twin Cities Marathon and 20th annual TC 10 Mile run and our own Jason Hoogland was among them.

The Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon weekend offered races, walks, and activities for every age and ability level!

The TCM started 1982 and typically takes place during the first weekend in October. It is one of the top 10 largest marathons in the US. It’s noted as “The Most Beautiful Urban Marathon in America®” because of its’ 26.2 miles of parkways, lakes, rivers, and tree-lined boulevards.

This was Jason’s 3rd marathon, 2nd time running Twin Cities Marathon. He set a goal of 4 hours, but when it grew closer to race day, he decided he wanted to do better than his previous marathon almost 6 years ago. He ended up finishing at 4 hours and 13 minutes which wasn’t his best time but much better than the first time he ran Twin Cities Marathon.

Jason started his training program in late May running 12-15 miles per week peaking at 42 miles in late September. Although he ran this marathon solo, he did a few training runs with his dad and still considers him to be his running/training partner and coach. “He’s run almost every race with me so far up to this point and trying to keep up with him is most of the reason why I’m a runner at all.”

“By far the most difficult challenge is finding the time to train. The last time I was following a training program, it was a lot easier because that was 2 years before my son was born. Now we have two kids so leaving the house for an hour or more 5 days a week isn’t easy. Thankfully my wife is very understanding and never gave me a hard time when I had to leave her alone with the kids.”

Although this is Jason’s 3rd marathon’ he’s done others as well, including City of Lakes 25k, Fargo half marathon, Whistlestop half marathon, Great River Ragnar (which was the hardest event he’s done) and one Tough Mudder (which was the most fun). There were also a few shorter runs throughout the years.

“Because I missed my initial goal, I was anxious to sign up for another one as soon as I can walk again. I’ll be doing Grandma’s Marathon in Duluth next June,” said Jason.
