Midnight Sun Run and What Has Been Going On Tuesday, Jun 26 2012 

I have been up to quite a lot of here-enjoying Mexican food, Thai food, and my first ever Summer Solstice Festival. On Saturday my sister and I did the Midnight Sun Run here in Fairbanks. This was the first race I have completed that started at 10pm. I ended up walking the 10k with my sister and a fellow doctor she works with. I am so proud of my sister-she not only worked all day but is also almost 8 months pregnant and then worked the following day.


It was a fun night and Fairbanks definitely wins the award for the most “interesting” race I have done.

Today was fun too I got to see where my brother-in-law works and then he cooked a fantastic wild Alaskan Salmon dinner.

On Saint Patrick’s Day I participated in a 10k. I made my goal of running 4.0 miles! Now the 10 Miler is just over a week away.
