A long weekend in the Northwoods!

Didn't do any running even though I planned on it!
Did a lot of mountain biking! Hundreds of miles of single track within 50 mile radius of our cabin!

Did some deer hunting. Not really!

Got arrested and locked up with my Granddaughter!

Did some crafts with my granddaughter after we were released from jail.

Did some paddle boarding!

Watched the sun set and solved all the worlds problems.
Crazy! Saw a Fisher! First time ever! Very very rare! I didn't even know they existed in Wisconsin!

Table Rock!

Almost to the top!
 My daughter lives in Eastern Idaho. Yesterday she and her husband climbed to Table Rock at the base of the Teton Mountains. The view is amazing! These are a few of her pictures!
Made it!

Sunscreen? Who needs it?

We do!

What's next?

Next up is the Chicago Rock and Roll Half Marathon on July 19th. I'm not a big fan of crowded races. I'm not a big fan of hot races. This one has a great possibility to be both. Crowded for sure! My wife has always wanted to do this race. It typically falls on a weekend that we attend Country Jam so it has been out of the picture. This year it is a week early. So we're in. We will run as a group with some family so it won't be a race race for me. On the plus side it will be fun to run in downtown Chicago and I've never run a race in Illinois.
