Ahem. If I may, I would like to do some modest promotion for an upcoming 25k/50k run on Sept 29th. It’s called the Lightfoot, and it is a low-key, free, self-supported get-together of a run on the county roads north of the Woodland/Lakeside areas. Lightfoot provides a route, start location, and some cheering (perhaps cowbell) at the start and finish – BYO water, snacks, and emergency evacuation plan. It should be a great way to meet some fellow runners, or make an adventure out of a training run for a race later in the fall, or, if you’re the competitive sort, come out and see if you can run 25 or 50k faster than the rest of the folks who show up. Officially enter the Lightfoot by sending a postcard (because I like getting postcards), and see you in September. Details are up on Northland Runner or at duluthgravel.wordpress.com. Happy Trails!
