Why not Minot?

There is a saying that goes, “Why not Minot? The reason is freezing.”

This saying is why my parents decided to move to Arizona for the school year when I was four. In the summer we would come back to our house with its 70s wallpaper and my childhood toys and I always loved it.

Minot, North Dakota is a constant in my life. I’m never there for very long but still I enjoy going to my family’s car dealership and feeling slightly important in this big bad world.

Today I got to run in Minot, North Dakota for the first time. As we have already covered… I have gone through some very non-athletic periods in my life. Today I ran 7 miles and covered a walk as just part of my run that used to seriously exhaust me.

Running here was amazing. It was nice and cool and the trail was pretty much empty. I ran on the river, past a golf course and through a beautiful park. Shockingly enough this was also my fastest run over 3 miles EVER.

Life is good, I’m home with my family in my house and off to Alaska tomorrow. Savoring the moment 🙂
