Joined by daughter Natalie who will be running some days and biking others.

Join Us for a Mile or a Morning

We keep being asked the logistics of how this works. So here it is...

We drove the route last winter and every 15 miles looked for a place to park the motorhome for a night. Across the state we have farmers, businesses, churches and schools who have welcomed us to stay on their properties. In the morning we take the tow car and drive back 15 miles to the previous nights spot. This is where the run starts. We run to the motorhome, rest, eat and cleanup. Then we go back to the car, hook it up and tow it to the next nights spot and repeat the process.

Today was a 40 mile biking day for Natalie.  I beat her though.  I was done with my 16 running before she made the round trip journey.  I still have to keep in mind that we are not racing.  There is not a time limit for the run. 

Thank you to our hosts for last night, Merna & Dale Malmberg.  We met Dale briefly as he was finishing planting beans.  Merna joined us for supper last night and brought vegetable soup and salsa for us to take on the trip.  Not only that, served us a delicious quiche for breakfast this morning after the run (and biking).  Natalie had a great time visiting about books.  We also learned she was the first woman police chief in Minnesota.
