Run Minneapolis: 46th & 45th St E, Longfellow

Edmund Blvd at E 45th St

On Sunday afternoon, I was talked into running Grandma’s Marathon, so on Monday, even though I felt like crap, I figured I needed to at least get out of the house for a bit. That bit may have been the shortest bit of running I’ve done as a workout to date.

Starting from the corner of 45th & Edmund (the residential street that parallels West River Parkway) I headed down to 46th St E and then West from there:

I then passed the ongoing disaster that is the 46th & 46th condo development disaster.

46th & 46th Condos?

It looks like Master Properties has given up on their grand plans after demolishing what was there before and building a foundation to a 4-story condo. However, their website still says that the project will be completed in July 2008.

Further West at Minnehaha Ave, I passed Geller Automotive, who always has a discount for paying cash:

And Mini express, who carries a lot of “tobacco glassware”:

Followed by the cool building that is home to Minnehaha Coffee:

I looped around at Hiawatha and got to see a cop blow a red light on the way to something in a hurry:

Then headed back in the rain along 45th while protecting my camera from the elements. I left the house with the idea of chipping off more East-West streets between the river and Hiawatha but caved when I saw my car. But by leaving the house I still managed to get some fresh air and 0.15% closer to completing my Run Minneapolis project.

  1. Congrats on making the commitment to Grandma’s! Being only nine weeks out from the Minneapolis Marathon, I’m starting to panic and think running a marathon was the stupidest decision I’ve ever made.

    That’s really encouraging, I know. I should be a life coach.
