Today we ran the Stillwater Log Run 12K. I finished DFL (aka dead fucking last). But I don't care. There were only 103 people who ran the race. There was a 10 mile race too so I didn't feel lonely as I was passed by 150 people. Hahaha! My miles were pretty consistent if there wasn't an uphill. Mile 7 was the fastest but it was mostly downhill. My last half mile into the finish was on pace to be faster than Mile 7. That's pretty good for me. I'm still not ready for the Twin Cities 10 Mile in two weeks.
My training hasn't been great because my knee pain came back. :(

We had a busy weekend. We started out Friday driving to Austin, MN to watch Bryce (Abbie's husband) fight in an MMA fight. It was an interest, late night. Here is Bryce in the ring.

We went to the Minnesota State Fair twice this year. The first time we went with Mike, Linda and Alec. We met Nancy, Greg and Blake at the Hamline Dinner where Eric always gets his Chicken Dinner from the church ladies. After that we headed to the Mighty Midway for rides but first Alec and Blake went down the Giant Yellow Slide.
Next stop was the Miracle of Life to see some babies and the animal barns.
After about 3 hours we decided to see other things at the fair so we headed towards O'Gara's for pretzel crusted cheese curds and Rueben Bits. But first Mike had to stop for a Leinie's.

We had a busy August with Twins games. I went to 9 games and 2 of them were in LA!
Here were my seats for my work outing to the Twins game. It was so stinking hot and we were in the sun. They view wasn't great but we got close to Kepler. :)
