| 1 Eisenbahn Marathon
I planned this marathon around a motorcycle vacation with my husband and to knock off the state of Wisconsin in my quest to run a marathon in very state of America. I loved the 6 a.m. start, the solitude of the trail, the limestone terrain, the cheery and enthusiastic volunteers at the aid stations, the plentiful water, the refreshing ice and sprinklers toward the end, the police blocking the roads, and the beautiful setting in the quaint German festival town of West Bend. Tech shirt was nice, although it did not have the marathon name on it, and I wish the medal had more of a Wisconsin cheese or trail theme on it or the neck band to represent the state. And a big thank you to the YMCA for the wonderful shower, warm towels and changing accommodations at the end. I felt I was in a top-notch hotel!! Great job!!
