Run Minneapolis: Dorman, Seabury, 26th Ave S, 32nd St E

Saturday’s run with The Other Mike and Bill started along 46th Ave S where we headed North crossing E Lake Steet next to the West River Commons townhomes and apartments.

And my neighborhood car repair service, Electra Tune:

We heading Northwest from there along Dorman, which parallels W River Rd a block in. The backyards of one of the West River Rd has a ginormous garage. I presume they’re acrobats:

To the North of the tracks, we entered the Seward Neighborhoods and ran along Seabury Ave:

We crossed Franklin and ran a couple blocks on Franklin Terrace past Riverside Park:

At 26th Ave S, we turned South, meandered past Franklin, then spotted this awesome block of historic homes along 22nd St E.:

Four blocks later, we passed Memory Lanes:

Before 29th, we passed the eco-friendly 7 Sigma company’s building and parking lot where they’ve included rain gardens to capture and percolate run off:

At Lake St, we passed the Minneapolis Police Department’s 3rd Precinct:

At 32nd St E, we turned left to complete the loop. The highlight of 32nd was the many churches we passed, such as the First Church of God:

Followed by the Epworth United Methodist Church:

  1. A correction:

    We crossed Franklin and ran a couple blocks on Franklin Terrace past Riverside Park:

    This photo is still south of Franklin, still on Seabury a block or so south of the bridge.

  2. Ed, I found you through thecraigshow.com. BTW did you know that the New French Bakery in the photos above used to be the infamous rock club The Mirage. Pantera, Motley Crue, and Iron Maiden played there. Before it was The Mirage, Mr. Nibbs which burned down in 1989 or 90.
