7:12 a.m. Well, I spent all of yesterday traveling. I'm back in Minnesota. Home sweet home.
This morning I'm set up near Summit Avenue in St. Paul, MN. This is a really nice area. I always wanted to live here when I was a starving college student.
There are a lot of runners out today. I bet most of them are training for the Twin Cities Marathon which takes place in October. The route goes right down Summit past some enormous mansions and down a very steep drop into St. Paul proper. I think that where I am right now is about 6 miles from the finishline at the state capitol. Mid-September is a very intense training period for marathoners. You are getting WAY up there in mileage, between 15 and 20 on your long runs. One good thing about being up this far north is that it's starting to cool down, which makes running MUCH more pleasant.
