Grand Island Trail Marathon, Munising, MI

26.2 Miles 3:24:21 15th Overall 2nd in age group
7:00 am) upper 50's Cloudy became Sunny.
Had a great visit to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
This was a fun marathon. You take the ferry out to the
Island and run the perimeter of the Island. The trail
was not terrible hard or technical but was challenging.
I felt good today I did not push it real hard just kind of
got into a grove and held it. This made it enjoyable
I felt great during the run and after. I was at mile 19
and I'm usually hurting at this point but today felt
as good as I did the whole day. I think I actually
ran faster the last 10k than most of earlier miles.
The trail was muddy in sections due to the rain we
got the day before. I was able to dodge all of the
puddles and my shoes remained dry. The day before
Mike and I did some sight seeing. Couple of pictures
above from that. The one is Miners Castle and the other
is Miners Falls these are located in Pictured Rocks National
Lake Shore.
