There’s a special sense of community at 6am on the trails and sidewalks of Minneapolis during winter. To see other fellow runners/skiers doing the same—whether it’s a small wave, a head nod, or simply some eye contact—achieves a level of connection that is unique and unmatched. It’s a solo pursuit, but you’re all in it together.
The Minnesota Runner is an ode to that. To the endurance athletes who continue their pursuits from November to February in Minnesota’s harsh winters—and have fun doing it.
