What a great time to be a runner in the Twin Cities! In case you haven't heard, my favorite store, TC Running Company, is opening a second store tomorrow. It'll be located at 12862 Bass Lake Road in Maple Grove. How great is that for all the runners in the northwest suburbs?
But that's not the only area of town getting a new store. You can now find Mill City Running in Northeast Minneapolis at 411 East Hennepin Ave. I was able to check out the store Saturday morning. Although they're still waiting for some inventory to arrive, I liked what I saw. And if you work downtown Minneapolis, their location is ideal and easy to get to. Stop by and meet owners Jeff and Bekah Metzdorff.
While at the store I was able to meet Nathan, who operates the relatively new site, minneapolisrunning.com, where he, obviously, covers things going on with the Minneapolis running scene.
As I alluded to in my last post, it finally feels like I'm recovered from my half marathon. Here's a look at week #5;
Sunday: 36 mile bike ride around the hills of St. Paul
Monday: 16 mile bike ride during lunch
Tuesday: 15 mile bike ride during lunch
Wednesday: 10.5 mile run at 7:20 pace with Scott
Thursday: 5 miles easy
Friday: 5 miles easy
Saturday: 16 miles
Total: 36.5 miles of running and 67 miles of biking.
