Today’s walk was probably a little ambitious but I wanted to give it a shot. I first walked from downtown to Minnehaha Falls Park in June 2006 … and on that trip I even walked past the park to Ft Snelling. It was my first trip to Minneapolis and we were trying to decide if Keith would make the move with his company from Marietta, GA or if he would take a severance package. in the end, we decided we’d make the move because we only had to commit to one year and I knew I could do anything for 1 year! We stayed almost 8 years in Minneapolis and it turned out to be one of our favorite places we’ve lived.
Today, I walked from our downtown hotel to the park – 7 miles … and then another 2 miles wandering along the falls trails and walking to the light rail station for the ride back downtown. Luckily the station I got off at was just a short 0.3 mile walk back to the hotel for a total of 9.3 miles!! I’m tired and sore but it was a great afternoon.
