Ok, in reality, it was more of a self-induced
At points, in this semi-embarrassing journey, we did have to stop and take breaks and I began to think "if this is hard, how will I ever get into good enough shape to run a half-marathon!" Even though my parents live in the very small town of Onalaska, the store is only about a mile away. So yes, several breaks were taken on a mile trek! What may have been even better, though, was us dodging under trees so there would be less snow to trudge through.
But, what a memory we made. And on the way back I really felt like a Biggest Loser contest having to carry my lost weight on my back, but for me it just happened to be a gallon and half of milk! Here we are victorious!
I hope if any of you are snowed in, you are safe and have plenty of milk!
