Travel Digest: Madeline Island Half-Marathon Recap

  • Aug 30, 2018

Where do you visit that feels like you’re meant to be there? Do you feel at peace there?

This is Madeline Island for me. It’s nestled just off the Wisconsin border of Lake Superior, north of the Twin Cities. There are breathtaking views. The ferry ride across the mighty Superior is always a treat. Cell reception is non-existent. The nicest, most humble locals you’ll ever meet welcome you with open arms. I have so many epic memories of camping with friends over the past 8 years. I’ve also run two half marathons on the island.

I’ll continue to go every year, I think, for the rest of my life.
