We had a full weekend with friends in town Friday and Saturday for Grandma’s Marathon. We also made a trip up the North Shore Saturday afternoon and enjoyed Father’s Day activities on Sunday.
Mike ran the 1/2 marathon with his high school friend Dave. Mike was hoping for cool conditions with low humidity, but got the opposite instead. Despite the less than ideal race conditions, he finished the 13.1 mile course in under two hours at a time of 1 hour 56 minutes. His friend who normally runs full marathons, finished at 1 hour 47 minutes. Way to go guys!!
After the race, we drove up the North Shore to visit the Split Rock Lighthouse (which Sophia kept calling the Split Rock Light Post, despite a number of corrections by myself and Sebastian).
We also spent some time at a cabin on the edge of Lake Superior being rented by Dave’s sister. The weather was hot and sunny, which made it very tempting to jump into the water.
We spent Father’s Day at home. The kids gave Mike their gifts in the morning and we enjoyed the nice weather outside with some yard games. We finished the day with steaks on the grill (Mike’s favorite) for dinner.
