A Week Of Traveling

Over the past week my family and I traveled across North Dakota and Minnesota visiting family and friends. Fortunately we missed the snow that had visited a week or so earlier as I didn’t feel like dealing with the white stuff during 6-7 hour road trip in the blue cozy car.

With all of the activities and people to see, running was at a minimum (1 run – 3 miles) but it fit in well with the recovery after the 50 km at Palo Duro.

While filling up gas in Fargo, ND, I noticed a running store (go figure) with a familiar name to those in the running/marathon scene just across the street.

The DBRC is owned by of course, legendary U.S. marathon runner Dick Beardsley. Mr. Beardsley had a very famous Boston marathon race back in 1982 against Alberto Salazar.

Check out this video that highlights the final miles. I had chills throughout.

What is up with all the cyclists?

Here is a recent video where Dick shares his Boston experience. Insightful!

Unfortunately it was  8:30 am and the store wasn’t open but it would have been cool to check out and maybe even meet the man himself. Maybe next time.

While putting plenty of miles on the road, we also encountered a few beneficial billboards.

While on the road in MN, we saw large groupings of these bright yellow trees. This wasn’t the best collection but by the time I thought of taking a picture we had passed the largest grouping. It was enjoyable to be back up in the Midwest to witness some of the fall color changes.

I hope you all had a great week of running and life. For me, it is time to ramp up the running mileage and get things rolling. The Rockledge Rumble trail run is a short two weeks away where I will be helping with packet pickup and then enjoying the 50 km run.

Be active – Feel the buzz!
