4th of July weekend was fabulous! Lots of family fun, s’mores, and running along the shore of two of the best lakes in Minnesota – Mille Lacs on Saturday and Lake Superior on Sunday and Monday.
Running along North Shore in Tofte
This week also marked week #1 of my Twin Cities Marathon training, with the big news being that I joined a running group and have a SPEEDY running coach helping me (he just placed 5th OA in a big local HM, with a 1:17 time!). Things feel pretty good, though the hamstrings were a bit tight during my long run Sunday.
