Found Art


This is from my very early works. It is appears to be a print of some kind. I think it was from Styrofoam etching. It is either a rainbow or a jump rope. Or it could be a representation of a Native American pictograph.

Fargo Marathon 2017: Yikes, snow!

Less than 1 month until the start of the umpteenth Fargo Marathon and Fargo welcomes an early spring snow storm. I ran in it this morn. Sort of a soft and wet mix. Beats running in the rain.
Snow accumulates on April 27
Not sure of the Fargo accumulations but looks like it will melt up by the weekend as temperatures start to rise above 30s. Still this is a bit of a surprise after having some pleasant days above touching the 60s and 70s in previous weeks. Participants need not to worry about running in the snow. Only once in the history of the race has it snowed- that being the first year - and there was hardly a trace. This is not to say it will not be cool come race time. I expect starting line temperatures on May 20 to be in the low to mid 40s warming up quickly into the early afternoon.
No flood impacts this year too.
Very little to report at this time concerning the marathon and all its related events. Registrations were reportedly done a bit but that is not strange considering the market for marathons and the like in the region. And the there will also be a new 15 mile cyclothon in addition to the 26.2 mile one that premiered at last years event.
