SEVENTEEN DAYS until we start pounding the pavement in beautiful Door County, Wisconsin. Em and I trained in the hillier (is that a word?) sections of Milwaukee County over the long Labor Day weekend. This has not been a good year for training, too stinking hot. Yet, we are excited about meeting up with some old friends and meeting some new ones.
We are staying in a cabin here. Cabin dwellling makes it feel kinda like being on a vacation, until you remember that you are WALKING 50 MILES.
Yet we have a good time, here's some photos from years past.
We are also busy as bees putting together some baskets/crafts for the silent auction. Look at what Em made this weekend.
I've also been sewing like a mad woman, going to take some sample hats out to our friends at Tadpoles in Delafield, Wisconsin. Tadpoles will once again feature our hand football hats (pattern is on Ravelry "Are you ready for some football". This time I'm hoping they will place an order for my reversible corduroy and wool bucket hats. I'll post a photo and a DIY tomorrow.
