2012 Milk Run 5K (and a training update)

Posted Wednesday, August 29th, 2012 11:00 am GMT -5 in Family,Running at 11:00 AM

This year’s edition of the Minnesota State Fair Milk Run 5K wasn’t my fastest (21:42 last year), but I ran injury-free and still managed to finish in the top 100 men with a time of 23:54 (7:43 pace). Here are links to the full results: men | women

I ran with the Garmin for the first time in a race and it was interesting to see that the watch thought I ran 3.14 miles instead of 3.1 (must have done a poor job with the angles). Splits were reported as 7:30, 8:01 and 7:25, with a total elevation gain of 105 feet.

The whole family participated again this year, with kid one running for the sixth year in a row and Colleen and kid two walking for their second. I really like this event: good price, course through my old haunts, fun T-shirts, fair admission ticket and a malt coupon that was good this year at the Dairy Building.

Six full weeks of fall marathon training are now in the books and my August mileage total will be highest in at least two years (and maybe ever). Despite the build-up, I’m feeling slow, old and weak – it feels more like the beginning of training and not well into a 1000+ mile year. The knee is still off and I’m dreading the standing desk most days now.

Might return to the sports doc soon if things don’t improve… 🙁

2012 Minnesota State Fair

Posted Tuesday, August 28th, 2012 01:58 pm GMT -5 in Family,Food,Running at 1:58 PM

This was an extra special year to visit the Minnesota State Fair for me, as kid one was finally old enough to get her first “job-job” there. She is working for her grade school phy ed teacher at the corn roast booth and is having a great experience (see above).

Looking at Google results, I’ve written here a lot about the fair and Sunday’s visit was as fun as always. Year 43 started with the whole family participating in the Milk Run 5K, which I’ll write about in another post later this week. We parked the car behind Heritage Square around 7AM, which worked out great.

After the race, we changed clothes and walked around together before the 2PM corn roast shift. Food included Sweet Martha’s cookies, Fresh French Fries, Pronto Pups, several malts from the Dairy Building, 1919 root beer, Danielson’s onion rings and corn on the cob (of course).

We visited the Grandstand, Colleen and kid two took the chairlift thing to the top of Machinery Hill, we saw Raven’s show at Minnesota Bound, toured the art, food and horticulture buildings, got a button from admin, listened to some live music at the Leinie Lodge, stopped by The Current booth and watched part of a horse show in the Coliseum.

After kid one went to work and Colleen left for a benefit event in Minneapolis, kid two and I hung out until kid one got done working. Thankfully she was finished early (10PM), but it was still a really long day (especially with the heat and sun). We walked up and down the Midway watching people try to beat the carnies, visited the Wild and Vikings booths, rode the giant slide and Skyride, then took a little nap in the car until it was time to head back to the corn roast.

Anita Baker was performing in the Grandstand that night and I made the girls wait outside for the fireworks, which were especially good this year. Traffic leaving via St. Anthony Park was non-existant and we made it home before midnight.

Since I have to work at Fortune Bay, I’ll miss the Minnesota Music on a Stick concert everyone else is going to on Friday. I’m experiencing fair withdrawal already, though, so I may have to stow away with kid one on Sunday or Monday…

Britton Peak Mountain Bike Trail

Posted Thursday, August 16th, 2012 01:01 am GMT -5 in Biking,Travel at 1:01 AM

On Monday I stopped in at the new single track mountain bike trail just outside of Tofte, Minnesota. It’s called Britton Peak and it’s being built by the Superior Cycling Association a few miles up the Sawbill Trail from Highway 61. I first learned about it from the Lutsen 99er Facebook page, which had a link to the PDF trail map above and some construction pictures.

The Short Stacker 1.5 mile beginner loop and the 2 mile intermediate Crosscut trail were finished and open, while the advanced 2 mile Skookum trail was still being worked on. I started on Crosscut and ended up on Skookum by accident, where I ran into a trail volunteer. He said I could continue on, but that the trail hadn’t been packed down and there were a lot of exposed roots and a few muddy spots to watch out for.

The entire experience was more difficult for me than riding at Lebanon Hills. The loops were beautiful, but there is a lot of elevation change and the unpacked sections were too much for me to handle (I’m not used to walking up anything at Lebanon any more). Once Skookum is officially open, it would be fun to go back and ride it the other direction. I’d also like to ride all of Short Stacker, as I think I missed most of it.

Be careful if you go, as there aren’t many signs up yet and I was told there won’t be set directions for each loop, which means crazy idiots like me may come flying at you going the opposite way…

A few shots from the visit:

Week Three Training Update

Posted Sunday, August 5th, 2012 04:39 pm GMT -5 in Family,Marathons,Running at 4:39 PM

30 miles this week and had to rearrange days again to get it all in. Week four drops back down to 29 miles, but is otherwise exactly the same. No changes in the knee or heels either – still feel a little off, but not painful enough to impact getting it done.

My friend Jake was right – the Garmin 610 is changing the way I run. It’s great to know realtime distances and pace, although I must admit it’s getting harder for me to tell the difference between a 8:30 pace and a 10:00 pace. Hopefully that gets better as training continues, since I’d really like to get back into the 8’s on a regular basis (let alone a return to the 7s). Lots of hidden watch features to explore still too…

The State Fair Milk Run 5K bibs came in the mail last week and all four of us will be participating (kid one and I running; Colleen and kid two walking). I’ve got bib #698 and will face a big challenge to match last year’s 5K PR time of 21:42 (6:59 pace). Looking back at those 2011 results, I can’t believe I was 55th among all males and 7th in my class. Only three weeks to get back up to speed!
