Small note: It is strange being on this side of Lake Michigan after so many years being on the east side of it. In other words: we used to photograph the sun SETTING in the west....over the lake.

Milwaukee was like DejaVu from Chicago. The sun shone on the buildings and gave them a golden color. At the very least, the park was open to everyone before the start of the race. I was able to be with Cheryl and catch her as she entered the gate.

As much of a burden it was to stay downtown, being close to the start had its perks. (again!) However, unlike Chicago, there was plenty of parking. So if we would have had to set up farther away, we could have found a place close by to park the Subie.

|Great day for a run!|
The course skirted along the Lake down the sidewalk. I was able to relax on a bench and wait for Cheryl to skip by.

So.. that is all for the race. I have not even begun to talk about the mountain of stockings we were greeted with on our home arrival. (36 total I think!) Pretty much most of today was catching the Etsy shop up. But that will be another post all together. Thanks for stopping in and hopefully my post was not as boring as it could have been without the pictures. Enjoy!
