Minnesota nice was alive and well in last weekend’s Grandma’s Marathon. The marathon touts itself as being a “world-class event with small-town charm,” and the host family program for elite runners contributes to that welcoming feel.
One of the host families was Bob and Ellen Anderson of Two Harbors. The Andersons hosted 24-year-old Charles Munyeki and 39-year-old Patrick Kiptum, both Kenya natives. And when Kiptum introduced his friend, Samuel Kosgei, a 27-year-old Uganda native, to the Andersons, they were quick to invite him to dinners at their home.
They’re already in the Grandma’s Marathon Hall of Fame – Joe C. Johnson, John Naslund, and Jim Nowak. For this trio of 60-something-year-olds, there’s not much left to prove along the North Shore from Two Harbors to Canal Park in Minnesota’s oldest 26.2-mile race.
Gebeck knows all too well the needs at the newborn intensive care unit at Essentia Health (SMDC) hospital in Duluth. Her premature twins, Clara and Jackson, spent four months in the unit two years ago. It’s the only such care facility north of the Twin Cities area.
