9/21/05

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.

My Subject is active. More later...

is Subject someone on disability who is, in fact, a marathon runner?

Insom. No. Maybe a random post and I should have explained that I ran the TS marathon way back when, so I tend to notice runners in this area.

... way back when ... It's all relative Polly.

From a geezer perspective, you don't have a way back when yet.

If we are all lucky, you will. And the equivalent of this blog will be available for us to continue spying on you! ;-)

Very true Polly...the Summit Area is amazing. Are you going to be in MN to see the marathon? I ran Grandma's this summer and am looking forward to WATCHING a marathon this time around (although part of me will want to be running I'm sure!) :)

Summit Ave is really great! Are you close to the Governor's Mansion?
