Kaministiqua

I'm pretty sure this is the 700+ foot cargo ship entering the port in Duluth. It was on it's way to get loaded up at one of the energy companies.

There were several hundred here to see it in action. Most ships arrive empty and leave with a full belly of various material.

Attention Please

In case it's hard to read, it says, "My art does not come from an easel". Well said my friend, well said.

Mystery Item

I'm not sure what it is, or what the purpose of the window cover does, but the added graffiti was a nice touch. This rusted cover is found at the Mill City Museum.

Messy Wall

Whenever I see a wall in this condition, it makes me wonder how it became this way over the years. There is so much happening, or has happened to the brick and windows, where does one begin?

Gopher To Badger Half Marathon

This past weekend was the 2012 version of the Gopher To Badger Half Marathon race. I am somewhere past the start line, way past the start line. This was my first time running a half marathon. I finished with a time of 2:03:27 and a 9:26 pace. I felt great at the finish line and was very happy with my time.

The name of the race, for those not familiar with the Gopher and Badger. Those are college mascot names. The race starts in Minnesota and finishes in Wisconsin. The mascot names are for the two Big Ten schools accordingly.
