Apologies for posting this so late, it should have been up a few days ago. I had the time this weekend, I just didn’t do it. Then, of course, I got really busy with work yesterday and today. Lesson learned: do these things while you have the time, because inevitably, things will come up!
Anyways – there was a lot going this past week as we continue to look back on the Chicago walk, recap the Michigan walk and get ready for the Twin Cities!
