Now that “Fixer Upper” has officially come to an end, Chip and Joanna Gaines are focusing on their new baby on the way (along with about 100 other exciting events and projects). Earlier this year, Chip shared that he had a New Year’s Resolution to run a marathon in 2018. With their “Magnolia Market” shop, Chip and Joanna are hosting the “Silo District Marathon” in Waco, Texas on May 6, 2018– and Chip is looking as slim and fit as ever after his training.
Here’s Chip when he first started his training:
In exactly 11 weeks I will toe the start line and there will be anticipation and nerves but 26.2 miles later, when I cross that finish line, it's going to feel so good. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ If you haven't registered yet, I'd love for you to run this thing with me. Register for the full if you're a runner or, if you're like I was 6 weeks ago and haven't run in years, sign up for the half. If you start today, you have just the right amount of time to train for it. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Or if that sounds daunting to you, that's ok too – come run the 5k!

And here’s Chip now, about a month away from the big marathon.
The Silo District Marathon, half marathon and 5K are ONE month from today! Our half is getting close to max capacity, so now is the time to sign up and ensure your spot. Remember, Chip is giving out prize money totaling $88,000 to the top three men and women finishers for the half and full marathons! #SiloDistrictMarathon (magnolia.com)
According to the Magnolia Market website, there will be a full marathon, half marathon and a 5K option, and all proceeds will benefit cancer research. “There’s no doubt that I’m looking forward to crossing that finish line, but every day of training up until then is something to be proud of—because I’m making it happen,” Chip said.
