The 5K Milk Run might be the only truly healthy activity among the sea of fried food on a stick at the MN State Fair. The field is limited to 1,500 so it’s a difficult entry to secure (thanks to Beth for getting us registered).
The race starts and finishes on the fairgrounds at 7:45 and runs through a hilly neighborhood nearby. My legs were a little tired after yesterday’s long brick but I still finished in 23:13 for a 7:27/mile pace. I certainly didn’t podium, but I did well enough that I thought I earned the Dairy Barn coupon for a free twist cone that came in the runner packets.
