The weather was pretty warm when we got up there as well. I was not too excited to sleep in a cabin that was not air conditioned. However, right around dusk the winds shifted and a cool breeze came through. We went to the airport (read: open empty field) to watch fireworks. The girls enjoyed it, I was did, too, but was tired from the morning run and just wanted to get to bed.
After a so-so sleep, I was up and ready to run. Jason went with me, and we did a 2 1/2 mile run hitting some hills, ugh! After our run, we had coffee by the lake...ahhh so nice!
We spent the next few days relaxing. Fishing off the pier, boat rides, I tried Musky fishing for the first time and LOVED it. We went in to Minocqua for some shopping, including delicious mocha at Horhay's Java Saloon.
We had a delcious dinner at the Minocqua Brewing Company. Good food, great beer!
Although the Runner's World Run Streak technically ended on the 4th, I want to keep it going. So in keeping the streak alive I ran 6 miles on Friday. Jason's competitive side showed and on Saturday he also ran 6 miles with me. I loved it!
