Ice Age Trail
Volunteering at the Ice Age 50-miler was lots of fun! We handed out plenty of goodies--potato chips, pretzels, pb&j sandwiches, licorice, m&ms, chocolate chip cookies, choc covered grahams, water, coke and Succeed! drink. Coke was the biggest request--lots of stomach issues by mile 40! The runners were very polite, thanking us for volunteering and most still had their sense of humor. When asked if they needed anything, many replied, "A new set of legs." One runner, when I asked what the "N" tattoo on his leg stood for told me, "Knowledge"! Hopefully, I'll be a runner here next year!!
