Purple Peep Eater Run

We spent Easter weekend on the west side of Michigan visiting Jennifer’s grandparents and extended family. I needed to get a long run in (14 miles) as part of my marathon training. I had considered doing part of the Hart-Montague trail (a former railroad bed), but then got the idea to see how far it was to run from Jennifer’s grandparents’ place in Pentwater down to her grandfather’s place almost due south, west of Shelby.Read more about the run on my Team in Training 2006 blog.
