I’m posting from my phone, so I’m not sure how this is going to come out! My husband and I left on Tuesday night and road tripped from Pennsylvania to Duluth, Minnesota. It was close to 20 hours of driving but we broke it up over three days. I drove the entire way, so I haven’t been able to post or comment much but I’ve kept up with you guys when I could set then cruise control and skim your posts!!
Part of the reason I wanted to drive us to save a few bucks – airfare was super expensive to Duluth, and I do travel often for marathons and try to drive one possible. Another benefit of driving is that I have all of the comforts of home. I was able to pack a cooler with all of my prerace foods and snacks, and could overpack as much clothing as I want. We stayed in a hotel the first night, camped on Lake Superior the second night and are currently shacked up at the University of Wisconsin on Superior. What a cool arrangement the race has with the local colleges. Anyway, here’s are some highlights from the trip so far!
