Grandma has run a marathon in every state

NEW YORK (AP) - June 20, 2011

The 60-year-old grandmother from Long Island is celebrating a remarkable feat of feet.

She's now run a marathon in every state.

Linares completed the "Mayor's Marathon" in Anchorage, Alaska, over the weekend in 4 hours and 20 minutes.

The New York Post reports that the retired manicurist ran her first marathon in New York City in 1978.

Her next goal is to run a marathon on every continent.

Between marathons, Linares runs 10 miles a day and eats a lot of fruits and veggies.
