As coach Rad is fond of saying, "Another beautiful day in the Emerald Valley."

#fbf to the Minnetonka High School Homecoming Parade. Except this was today and I was riding with the Alumni Association in a beautiful 1962 Corvette Stingray. (Note the expertly coached wave. Thanks @aishapraught ) The rain didn't stop over 5,000 Skipper fans of all ages from lining Water Street, five deep in places, in downtown Excelsior, MN. The parade wasn't just old folks in hot rods. It was led by the marching band and there were floats representing sports teams, extracurricular activities, and all four classes (each riding in a trailered boat, of course). #GoSkippers #GoTonka #TameTheEagles

She's blue. If she was green she would die. Certainly Eiffel 65's controversial and cryptic lyrical genius doesn't apply to @aishapraught . Here she is during her pre-race workout (8 x 200m alternating 1500m/800m race pace. 200m jog recovery) trying to fit in as a high schooler at Minnetonka (Go Skippers!) so she doesn't get kicked off the track like @david_torrence @garrettheath and @riley_masters . Look for her to be wearing some shade of @oregontcelite #green as she blasts the #5thavemile this afternoon! If you're in NYC, I highly recommend going to spectate (the finish line is approximately 60th and 5th). For those of us not in the City that Never Sleeps tune in to #ESPN2 at 1 pm EST for a live broadcast. #nikerunning #niketf #nikenyc #runviking #runlikeagirl #nyrr #latergram

When the hay's in the barn but the season's not done yet. @aishapraught getting ready for the @nyrr #5thavemile by doing some race-pace work on a long, straight stretch of path. @oregontcelite @nikerunning #nikerunning #capturemn #niketf

Pickles on pickles on pickles at the Minnesota State Fair. It goes without saying that @aishapraught is one happy girl. #capturemn #picklequeen #mnstatefair
