Outdoor Ride

Welcome to that part of the week in which I virtually drag you all to my little corner of Minnesota for a workout. Tonight's workout: 10 mile bike ride on the Munger Trail. While the first five miles straight into the wind were a little tough, those last five on the way back were a breeze! Sophie enjoyed her first ride out for the year too. This trail goes from Hinckley all the way up to Duluth and I have used it for running, rollerblading, biking, you name it. For Grandma's '08, I did almost all of my long runs on this trail pushing Sophie in the jogging stroller during her nap time. I've been bit in the ass by a dog on this trail. I've seen a bear crossing this trail. Fun stuff!

Looks like a beautiful trail! I would love to try it out sometime. That's a great idea to just the jogger stroller during nap time. Oh, sorry about the dog biting!

I love that trail and used it quite a bit when I lived in Duluth. My parents still live very close to it.

MN is so pretty. THe winter doesn't sound all that appealing, but spring sure is beautiful.

That looks a lot like the rail-to-trail by us. Ours is a 25 mile long trail which used to be a train track-awesome scenery! Love these trails.
Glad to hear it was a dog that bit you in the ass and not the bear!
