Grady Furo, 12, of Knife River has a very clear goal for Grandma's Marathon on Saturday.

"I want to beat my sister," he says with a smile.


Grady's older sister Erika ran the marathon two years ago. She finished in 4:33, a respectable time for any runner and especially impressive for a 13-year-old. This Saturday, Grady will be the third Furo to run Grandma's Marathon as a preteen.
