LAKEFRONT UPDATE

Well, the good news is that the Twin Cities Marathon wasn’t today. It was 10 degrees warmer this morning and the dew point reached the high sixties later in the day. A marathon today would have been even uglier than yesterday.

I wanted to mention how Double and Peter (who post comments here frequently) did at Lakefront yesterday, but my entry ended up way too long. Anyway, Double won his age group with a 2:53:18, while Peter turned in one of the top performances of the weekend with his first sub-3, 2:59:13. Way to go guys! Complete results for these marathons can be found here. Also there are some photos from Twin Cities up here.

I ended up not running yesterday. I figured biking 22 miles was enough. Besides, yesterday we spent the afternoon at an apple orchard. It was a lot of fun but I could wait to put the girls to bed so I could finally sit down.

Tonight I jumped on the treadmill for an easy 5 miles while watching the Packers get beat (again). I wore my Nike Frees for the first 3 miles. That’s the longest I’ve worn them for so far. Usually I just wear them when I walk/jog with the dog.

Interesting blog! I love your 100 things about you list. I am a WI native - I miss Lake Michigan!

Interesting race report!

Thanks. I actually grew up in Northern WI, so I'm a Lake Superior kind of guy.
