Waiting for the debate by organizing my mixed nuts from most to least enjoyable.
Making squash soup.
It's possible that we're drinking wine before 9 am. Entirely possible.
Pumpkin pancakes at Al's. Best. Ever.
Carrie races the self timer.
Hiking Blue Mound State Park near Madison, WI.
Back to work.
Listening to podcasts after work.
Where I find myself at a fashion show underdressed, yet again.
On the side of the road rockin' my enormous safety vest.
Me and Bond.

Twin Cities 10 mile! Jamie and I ran together and quietly pushed each other harder than we had planned to run. Subsequently, I ran this race 19 minutes faster than last year. 19 minutes! And 10 minutes faster than my goal! So stoked.
I captained the station team and all seven of our 10 milers finished in under 2 hours. And our three marathoners ran well and finished. Go team!

Stellan's first birthday. And a kiss from Izzy.
I want to finish this scarf for homecoming. Go Gophers!
Fooling around at the Twins game.
Shiny studio floor. So shiny.
The crane is not just for the state fair anymore.

First trip mountain biking with Eric and Kevin. I wiped out twice and have some wicked bruises on my legs.
Emmy win! I won two Emmys tonight!
Perfect fall day. Trying to get in a few more sandal days before the cold.

Two of my favorite people in town from San Francisco!
Stripes and coffee in the fall.
Foot pain. Race on Sunday. No good.
Race packet. Foot pain or not, the 10 mile is on Sunday.
Jeanne, Biffy and I. We have a series of these, the first one was taken ten years ago on a pep band trip to North Carolina.

Chris and I finished our trek. 26 miles(ish) in 3 days. A truly great hike. Something I've wanted to do for a long time.
Day in Boulder. This town is awesome.
Top of Pike's Peak! I drove it. I didn't climb it.
I had a long run today and decided to take it easy with a little shopping and browsing in Denver.
Pre-lunch ice cream. Tonight was Frank Turner night. His show was killer.
Lots of driving. More and more driving. 9 hours of driving to Omaha. Thankfully my friends Andy and Jenny were there to greet me. I was in Omaha for only 10 minutes before Andy made sure I had a cocktail in my hand. Now that's an excellent host.
A Danish windmill in Elkhorn, Iowa. I drove 12 miles out of the way to see this. The billboards on the highway were too convincing. My thoughts: I may be headed home, but I'm still on vacation. Who cares when I get back to Minneapolis?

Drove all day to get to Denver. A good friend and delicious beer is my reward.

Backpacking in Rocky Mountain National Park. We started in Grand Lake and hiked up the North Inlet trail.
Day 2 of backpacking. We hiked above tree line and walked on the ridge most of the morning.
