This morning, I finished my last long run before next weekend's Chicago Marathon, and let me tell you, the town has cleaned up well for tomorrow's Twin Cities Marathon. I ran part of the course, checked out the river, and took note of some fall colors.
These photos are made possible by a new contraption I bought yesterday at Run-n-Fun: a little belt with a pocket that holds my cell phone or camera plus all the Gu I'll want for next week's race. I had been hoping to find something that would fit the Gu plus my phone to make finding Josh post-race easier, and this is perfect. I am very excited about it. I brought it home and showed Josh and he said, "The truth is, you just bought your first fanny pack."
For the record, I will deny this "fact" forever. I love my belt-with-zippered-pouch.

looking toward downtown MInneapolis and the University of Minnesota.

and the Ford Parkway bridge (and eventually downtown St. Paul).
|Orange and green!|

I wanted her to take my picture with the leaves. Um, no thanks. That's okay.
