12 Mile training run, Clare, MI

My wife is training for the Detroit Marathon, Saturdays mean long runs. Somewhere between 8-20 mile runs. This weeks was a 12 mile run.

Since were up at the cottage in the summer, she has to find somewhere to do these runs that is not a 2 mile loop so she doesn’t go stir crazy.

This run is along the PERE MARQUETTE RAIL-TRAIL on a section between Clare and Loomis.

Little Traverse Bay, Petoskey, MI


My wife and I were able to get a couple of days away in Petoskey with just her and I and the dogs.  We had a great time, and even found a dog beach called the Zoll Street Beach that the dogs could swim and play in.  The weather was crazy perfect.
