There has to be someone up there, good luck! Someone always throws in the mention of the Minneapolis Marathon that happens the second weekend of most months. Get a hotel room, game for 20 hours in a weekend. Hopefully that will help you get your fix if you can't find anyone up there.
Thanks, and yea, I usually do make the trip down for MBGM, but it's been a while, and I'm really looking forward to the next one.
