kettle moraine 50k

thoughts and observations on the run:

-always nice having family at a finish line, even if it is midnight

-point-to-points are great, although a rarity in the midwest.  this section of the ice age trail has some great terrain variety and scenery.  glaciation isn't all about pancake topography.

-this course would very tough when the sun is out.  it wasn't, that was good. 

-night running on rocky trail in the rain is fun.

-had the pleasure of running with corey lyons from morton, il for a bit.  was at howl with him years ago.  also, met a guy at starting line who's grandfather used to be doctor in eureka--spent his summers here.  ultras=still a small world

-you know you're in wisconsin when the aid station offers cheese cubes and brats.

-when did compression socks become so popular?  i thought i was running through a shuffleboard tourney at the shady acres old folks home.

-kettle is a classic race.  has a bit of everything and is well organized.  you should probably pick a distance and go do it.
