I'm so looking forward to my next run with the LPTR!
This week so far: 30 minutes of rowing on Monday with two separate sets of tabata intervals, and a rest day yesterday.
Get it, girl.
|My sisters and I ran part of the course Saturday, the segment just before the finish. Deep breaths, Kim, deep breaths!|
|The beginning of my lovely trail at Pike Lake State Park. |
Except I took this when I got back...it was a little dark when I started.
|Trail to the right, view to the left...obviously, as a sucker for a view, I turned left.|
|They were right about that view! Holy Hill, National Shrine of Mary, Help of Christians. And PB Berry Blast!|
|My trail is so badass that there are animal skulls sitting on the trail blazes. What does your trail have?!|
|One of my favorite sections: boardwalk over marsh, next to a farm. The trail comes out next to the farmhouse and you're basically running through these people's front yard. Not awkward at all.|
|Post-run at Pike Lake. It was a challenging 4 hours, but left me with so many endorphins that that LaraBar was the BEST EVER, and my water was the BEST thing I'd EVER drunk, and every song that came on the radio was the BEST song EVER. Love it!|
I like to think of the Ice Age Trail as my "home trail" - it stretches all the way across WI and one of my goals in life is to run the whole thing!
|Best GU flavor ever. Wish it was caffeinated.|
|My view of the church at Holy Hill. I (almost) was too pissed to be inspired.|
