In Yan Teopa



Today is the Frontenac State Park 10 mile trail race. I won't be there. I have yet to even go to that state park.

There is a famous rock formation there the Dakota Indians named "In Yan Teopa", which means "rock with opening". Looks like the Dakotans were about as original as I when creating names for stuff.

Good luck to all who are running, and good luck to those who are tapering for Twin Cities Marathon next weekend. I know a few running this for their first time.

There will be a few posts dedicated to TCM, I will be watching with my family at mile 24.

Still have a hard time running

Nice and simple - I like it!! Keep it!

See you at mile 24 then. I hope I am still smiling. Or at least not hallucinating like I was 2 miles from the end of Sawtooth.

The running will come back. It's only been 3 weeks. Lot's of beautiful fall weather to come and you'll be able enjoy it.

Sorry to hear running is still difficult for you. Hope that changes soon.

I'll look for you at mile 24 too!

In Yan Teopa was just okay this year, nothing special. There are some interesting native american joke names. Owatonna means straight river; it bends 50 times in the first mile!

"Looks like the Dakotans were about as original as I when creating names for stuff." Now that's good stuff... made me laugh anyway. :)
