The Weekend is Here!

     It doesn’t seem to make as much of a difference if it is the weekend or not now that the kids are out of school.  This weekend is a little bit different since it’s the Grandma’s Marathon in Duluth, MN on Saturday. That means there will be some extra traffic and congestion to deal with as the sane folks attempt to come north. 

     I’m not implying people who run Grandma’s Marathon are insane.  I think running is great and enjoy it myself. I even like to run along the shore of Lake Superior just not with a gajillion other people surrounding me. I’ll take the quiet roads and trails of the Gunflint Trail over the city streets of Duluth.

     Some of the Grandma’s participants come north after their big run. That makes a little more sense to me. But what makes the most sense is just coming to the BWCA for the weekend and forgetting the hoopla all together.

     Wherever you’re spending the weekend, make it a good one and spend time in the great outdoors.
