|Gathering and a touching speech about living with Lupus before the Lupus Foundation of Minnesota's 5k. (on the windiest day of the year)|
|Christian didn't question the weather. It was his chance to run a race with Mom. He wanted to win.|
|After 45 minutes, he crossed the finish line. The next morning, he asked if we could run it again. I love him.|
|But the next morning, I Nanna (an angel from Denmark) watched the kids as I ran on the Superior Hiking Trail. Heaven is yellow pine needled paths.|
|And subtle hues. I am spoiled to be here! Some of the Northern Minnesota Running Club runners were out, though I really only knew Chris Rubesch.|
|I started to take off my shoe. Then I decided to take a picture of our entryway (and me) following the wonderful 16 miles.|
|This is also what it looks like here (a picture I wish I would have taken by unknown photographer)|
|10 years of yoga and I can finally do a headstand. Me and the couch. Thanks for the inspiration, Angie Bee!|
|Christian did it on the first try, of course, being a young pup. That very evening he spent a half an hour watching yoga videos on youtube and practicing. He might be more into it than I am.|
|Christian felt Mattias should also make inversion part of his practice.|
|View on my bike ride back from dropping off Mattias. Lakewalk, Duluth. Sigh.|
Below you can see what I was listening to. Great biking music!
Idea: I'm considering applying to do the 24 hour race in Tempe Arizona, Desert Solstice invitational. Basically, I want to see Pam Smith (again), but I'm also curious what I could manage to run at a race like this. 24 hours- on a track. Sounds actually really tempting! Looking at the past results, I see that Maibritt Skovgaard's 133.1 miles a month ago in Grenaa really was an incredible performance and would have been the womens' record at Desert Solstice.

Jokes: I am not the type of person who has a repertoire of jokes handy at any given moment. Nothing really wrong with this except at physician job interviews, a classic questinon is "tell me a good joke". I need some new material. Anyone?
