I was in Minneapolis last weekend to attend my Penn classmate’s wedding. The morning of the wedding, I ran the Minneapolis half marathon. Perhaps waking up early to run a race before an evening of celebration and dancing was not the best idea, but it was fun! It was my first time in Minneapolis, and running a long race through the city was a fun way to see the sights of a new city. The majority of the half marathon course was along the Mississippi River, which was beautiful! At the end of the race, there were state flags lined up along the finish area. How welcoming! Here I am post-race with the Pennsylvania flag. Hurrah, hurrah Pennsylvania! All in all, I ran a great race, saw a new city, and best of all, got to spend time with fellow Penn alumni to celebrate the marriage of a fellow Quaker.
