Lake Superior – it’s in the blood. Growing up in Duluth, there’s something about the lake that continues to draw one back. It certainly did for me. After years raising our family and pursuing IT careers in the Twin Cities my husband, Rich, and I built a home on the edge of Duluth. We have both retired from corporate life and are now living near our favorite body of water, where we can easily pursue our outdoor passions.
I’m an avid runner and marathoner, and particularly enjoy the races where the whole family gets involved. I love swimming, canoeing and kayaking (did I mention I like water?) and even just sitting on a warm dock reading a good book. Recently I have taken up long distance cycling with my husband. My first trip was guess where – around the western end of Lake Superior! Winters find me cross-country skiing, either enjoying the woods classic skiing or doing a hard workout skate-skiing. I’ve added ski marathons in recent years – what a great time!
It’s not all about the outdoors. We have a close-knit family, with three married children, and 3 (almost 4!) grandchildren. Fortunately, they too love Lake Superior. I enjoy reading, sewing, needle crafts, baking and spending time over coffee (or wine!) with friends. My husband and I also like to travel, particularly going abroad and nestling into the countryside to explore local areas in depth.
I’m looking forward to sharing my passions on this blog.
