Anyway, I never carried a camera, mostly because I didn't know what exactly I'd do with the photos. Well, enter Miles and Laurel. Now I have a spot to share them!
(A Friday long run, by the way, is thankfully a rare anomaly. Because of travel or other commitments, I end up shifting my weekend long run to a weekday once or twice per marathon training cycle. Sunday's a triathlon this week, so my alarm clock rang at a most unpleasant hour today and I headed out to get it done.)
|Here's the St. Paul sky early in the run. I guess I'm not keeping |
the secret that I love clouds very close to the vest, am I?
Today's route was a staple for Twin Cities runners: the river road, which winds for miles and miles on either side of the Mississippi and connects Minneapolis and St. Paul. I made it over to a spot that provides one of my favorite views of the Minneapolis skyline, the Stone Arch bridge:
Every time I cross the bridge, I peek at the condos that face the river. Downtown Minneapolis is not my style for residence, but I just love the huge windows in the buildings.
|Not the property on the left, though. (That's the Mill City Museum!)|
Now, home for the day because of summer hours at the office, it's time to harvest a pile of mint and a nap.
