Jeff’s Post – Wisconsin Follies!
We are wrapping up an eventful week in Wisconsin and will be leaving tomorrow for the 12+ hour road trip back to Maryland. Running while traveling is always difficult so I’ve been fairly happy with my runs this week and I always love running in new places. My running recap for the week – 6 miles in Ohio (after driving 8 hours), 6 miles in Waterford, WI (after driving 5 hours), 6 miles on Monday, 4 miles with Tamara on Tuesday – then we went to Lake Michigan for the day and I couldn’t resist running another 4 miles at the lake – just beautiful. I got another 6 in yesterday and have decided to take a couple days off. I’m still dealing with a nagging shin pain and I’m hoping the couple day rest will help. Our vacations are over and I need to get super focused over the next couple months. I basically have a race every month ending with Marine Corps in October.
This trip was really about visiting Tamara’s Dad and making sure that Samantha got to as many amusement parks, water parks and ice cream shops that we could find. I think we accomplished all of those. I even had my first ever Cream Puff from the Wisconsin State fair.
I’m writing this post while Tamara is out running and she just called me. We always carry a cheap flip phone when we run and she has never called before (scared me a bit) but she just wanted me to check on a road she was running to see if it connects to the highway. I tend to run more up and backs when I travel just to make sure I can find my way home.
I have shared a few pics below and will add more once we get home. I also ran on the track for the first time last week and want to recap that over the next few weeks. I really enjoyed it and hope to get on the track more.
Have a great day and Happy Running!
