4.5 easy miles around Valentine, Nebraska. Valentine, as you probably know, is the former home (former because he's dead now) of Patrick Deuel, once the world's fattest human. From the looks of things there are many others around here competing for the honor.

Lewis and Clark stuff tomorrow!

Early morning miles in Pine River. 8 minute pace. Achy - hips, back, glutes stiff after 1,200 miles in the car.

Noon: 18 holes of mini-golf with Andy. I destroyed him 68-74 on the par 40 course. Both of us had about 10 do-overs.

PM: 4.25 more dirt road miles.

This was a trail race. Hilly, especially for Minnesota, 75 degrees humid, and twisty-turny. Super fun course to run - two 6.55 mile loops. I missed the win by a little over a minute but I'm really happy with this race.

Abby ran it with me and did a 1:57:40 for 7th among the women and 1st in her age group. Not bad considering her previous longest run was 11 miles.
