Last weekend, I ran the Hot Dash 10 mile race in Minneapolis. I have run the race the last 2 years as a part of the race series that I did leading up to the Twin Cities Marathon. I was never a huge fan of the race– it’s in the early spring when it’s hard to get out and train, and the course is really hilly. But, it’s always a nice butt kicking to kick off my spring races.
Minneapolis hosted the superbowl over the past weekend and turned the city into a football wonderland. Although I was still bitter that my Vikings did not make the superbowl, it was still fun being the host city. The “superbowl live” area was set up just outside of my work with all sorts of winter activities and media broadcasts.
Happy Superbowl week! Although I am still entirely bitter that my Minnesota Vikings did not make the Superbowl this year (again), but we are hosting the Superbowl this year which is exciting. If any of you are lucky enough to go to the Superbowl or are just visiting, I thought I would make a little Minneapolis tips guide to help you with your visit.

Last weekend I toured the historic Burwell House in Minnetonka, Minnesota. The house was built in the late 1800’s and has been preserved and restored to be historically accurate. The workmanship and interior of the house are stunning. It was even more beautiful since it was decorated for Christmas (and they gave me apple cider!). I’ve been going all out in Christmas decor the past few years but I’m feeling so inspired by the simplicity. And those beautiful textiles… #hearteyes
