June: An entire month at home!

Who is ready for dinner on the patio?
June and September are my two favorite months in the Minnesota.  The temperature is perfect for training, working and playing outside.  The bike paths, parks and lakes are filled with runners, bikers, skiers, paddlers, sailors, slack liners and more.  It has been awhile since I have had a big chunk of time at home and it is great to have everything dialed in at home.  

One bag for the lunch, one bag for the training gear. #HowWeBean
The past two weeks have been pretty high volume for Caitlin and I.  The Club closes for a week between the school year and the summer programming so it is an ideal time to go big with volume with 55 hours in 13 days.  I am ready for a really easy recovery week now to allow everything to soak in.

Carmen and his new helmet
Carmen is one of our new neighbors and is out on his bike nearly everyday.  He didn't have a helmet, but thankfully we have a supply of brand new ones from a speaking event we did with the American Academy of Neurology.  One of favorite parts of living in Minneapolis is connecting with our neighbors on being active and staying safe.
Caitlin and I with Team Jelly Belly.  The pros are in town for the North Star Grand Prix stage race and we joined them for a casual ride last week.

The Boys and Girls Club reopened this week for summer programming.  Next up is Loppet Adventure Camp and the crew is excited to further their skills mountain biking, running, canoeing, rollerskiing, orienteering, and swimming.
