Syttende Mai Run (Madison to Stoughton, WI) May 16th, 1981

Lon found this picture in a drawer last weekend. It was taken down the final stretch of a 20-mile run that I participated in back in 1981. The run was part of the Norwegian Independence Day celebration which is held annually in Stoughton, WI. 

By the look on my face, you can see the determination it takes to run that far; the many hills added to the challenge.

My time was 2 hours and 56 minutes.

Oh my, that was 34 years ago!!!
