September 7th we were in Madison, Wisconsin to enjoy Ironman Wisconsin race weekend. I LOVE Ironman Wisconsin, race weekend and the community!! We have met some incredible “family members” through Ironman Wisconsin. I am truly blessed and lucky to have such amazing and inspirational people in my life!!
Saturday morning my husband and I went to the volunteer meeting at 8 am at the Monona Terrace, then changed into our running gear before heading out the door for our 18 mile run around Madison. Even though we have run in Madison many times before, it was fun to go on a LONG run somewhere other than home.
The last 4 miles were a challenge…with full sun, high temperatures and high humidity, the only saving grace was the winds blowing in our face. It felt great to get this run done, submerge ourselves in Lake Monona to cool down and enjoy the scenery in a “new” location. With our run behind us, we could now spend Sunday volunteering and spectating for all of the Ironman Wisconsin athletes!!
