Yesterday was the running of the 2012 Twin Cities Marathon. Over 12,000 runners participated in the 26.2 mile marathon and the accompanying 10 K race. Having a family member in the race was especially nice, and as you can see the kids were full support of their dad and close neighbor with signs that they had held up at different logistic spots along the race. Many say that this race through the environs of Minneapolis and St. Paul is the most beautiful marathon within an urban environment stretching through both cities, along the Mississipppi, down historical avenues and finishing at the State Capitol in St. Paul. Brrr! it was cold yesterday.
In the days and weeks to come, it is my intent to post photos and share my many rich and fulfilling Arizona experiences. Hopefully, this blog will engender and create an interest on the part of the reader to know more about the diversity of the "Grand Canyon State" and possibly visit. (November 23rd, 2009)
I was born and raised in the cold country of Minnesota. After spending thirty seven years in education, retirement in Arizona was my answer. Today, my interests and passions include traveling, playing tennis and being with my grandchildren.
