    Way to go! I was disappointed I missed it, but I wasn't ready. Next year for sure, though, assuming I can get entered before it sells out. It was crazy this year how quick it filled up.

    Inspiring! Being a displaced cheesehead, I will say that I loved the Lambeau Lap! So glad you touched into that inner cheesehead! I may consider training for this one next year!

Good luck with the marathon training. Have always loved the John Bingham quote.
