Like many others in the Northland this weekend I was down in Duluth for the 36th running of Grandma's Marathon. First question answered...No I was not running. I was there as a spectator for the first time and it was a lot of fun to watch. Of course I had an interest since my daughter was running in the half, but it was fun to see how many others I recognized as well. While we spent quite a bit of time in Canel park on race day, we also took part of the weekend to do some biking on the Munger Trail.
The photo on the left shows the finishing stretch of the race in Canel Park before any runners showed up. And a few miles away over looking the St. Louis River from the Munger Bike Trail. A great contrast of the all the things one can see and do in the Northland!
