We grilled, we sang, we hiked, we hung out, we napped and yes we went to DQ. Love the Two Harbors DQ where they are always serving the cones LARGE when you order a small. Ok not so good when you are already full, but nobody's complaining.
So here are some pictures, no training photos, these are more fun! I do have to show you some of the hzards of running up north, see this? I didnt get too close but it was humming:)
And the roots are pretty dang big, big enough that i have some really sore Peroneals from rolling on the roots. And this is a groomed trail, the one i was on for my long run kept me humble at about 11 min/mile as i tried to dance thru the OLD trees!
Hee we have our own outhouse!
See this is why i grew up playing racket sports. We spent ALOT of time in the ping pong house and at the courts, I am very good at killing horse flies mid point.
New bridge across the lagoon!
I am not a coach but this is good advice for ALOT of things, not just TRIATHLON!
This is at the putting course. I also know this is on the Gear West Du course. Gotta slow a bit when you see this and you are cornering at 25 mph.
And on a tangent.....We also had a memorial for Iona. We cremated her and tho we had spread a few ashes in the river and the Lake we wanted to bury her at the cabin.
We wrapped her in a "kerchief and put a tennis ball with her. We dug a hole and said goodbye.
It was good to get closure, and I feel ok about it. I still miss her and there are times I feel like a traitor loving Ruby so much. I wanted to post a goofy picture from the Ruby Cam but decided this post and this burial was about closure on Iona. My mom and I covered the site with dirt and we put a little cross there. We buried another dog "Mocha" there in 1984 and so I hope that Iona and Mocha are meeting each other somehow somewhere.
