Stanford to run marathon during LPGA season to improve mental toughness

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – Angela Stanford is going to squeeze a marathon into her schedule this season.

Yes, she’s going to train to run a 26-mile race between events in the spring.

She believes it’s going to help her golf.

“I didn't feel very strong mentally last year,” Stanford said. “I felt pretty weak, in general. I thought, you know what, I'm going to figure out how to beat this. I have to be stronger mentally out here, and I guess the best way to do that is to train for something.”

So, she is training for the Los Angeles Marathon, which is scheduled for March 8.
