Northern Lakes Races

Our favorite runner coming in to the finish of the 30K. Northern Lakes 30K and 10 mile races are around and in the area of Bald Eagle Lake, on the north edge of the city of White Bear Lake.
Sweet Pea and I did the 10 mile around Bald Eagle Lake. Today was a bit warm for a race.. high 60's .. but a nice gusty breeze kept us going.

At about 3:30 this afternoon the weather radio came on and we are in a severe thunderstorm watch.

It looks like a nice lake to run around. Now are you going to run around the other 9,999 lakes?

Oh my! We had not thought of listing the lakes we have run around... but I'm sure with more than 10,000, we have a few to go!
Our next big race will be along the big lake.

Looks like fun! We don't have many mid-distance races around here. They are 5K, 10K, half or full or longer. We need some like yours. Of course, then I'd never have a free weekend...

Congrats on the 10 miler! I would love to visit that area one of these days. It would probably take some time to see all of those lakes let alone run near or around all of them.

Wow - 20 miles! Soon, I'll be able to run that amount. It is elusive to me now.

You always seem to have a lot of fun!

My 13 mile long run ended up just being hot overall. But I am stronger for it!

It should be noted that our running is run/walk run/walk.
We do have fun, and I would not think of trying to see how fast I could run without Sweet Pea. We are a team and do what we can. Right now we are trying again to increase the frequency of "run" in that run/walk.

I like the run/walk method; it has certainly helped make me stronger this year. I don't think I could run as far without walk breaks, especially when it's over 70 degrees.

I love the Emerson quote on your main page!
