Where I live and train

Almost every weekend there's an event at Lake Walkathon. Today was the MMRF (Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation) 5K and I decided to snap a few photos, as I waited for things to clear enough that I could go for a run and not be in the way. My house is at the 1 Mile mark, across Lake Phalen from the start and finish. Each year, I look for Don, whose blog detailing his running while being treated for multiple myeloma is an instant cure for my complaining and finding excuses not to run.

Leader, 15 seconds ahead at 1 Mile

Kirt Goetzke (right) does more than 100 races per year

Rather pretty for a city park, isn't it?
