World's Longest Turkey Trot

My friend Alfredo Pedro Perro needs a 100.  Bad.

So we came up with a crazy idea.  Instead of doing a 5K turkey trot, or shopping till we drop, let's create the World's Longest Turkey Trot!

About six months ago we participated in a senseless and arbitrary run (in the cold and snow) from Napperville, IL to the Bean at Chicago's Millennium Park.  Why?  Because someone said it out loud.

We ran about 32 miles and had a fantastic time.  When it was over we decided that the run would have to be played forward at some point to a new location.  It had to be EPIC.  

Fast forward to this Turkey Trot idea.  We knew we wanted to run FROM the Bean.  But the question remained....Where To?

Well, Alfredo is itching for a 100.  I am from Milwaukee.  A friend of mine once joked that I could run there.  BAM.  Let's go from Chicago to Milwaukee!!  

We will be doing this pretty much unsupported starting from the Bean at 7:00 a.m. on Black Friday.  We are going to have some friends start with us and meet us along the way.  I will be sure to post plenty of pictures. 

We will end at the Fourth Base in West Milwaukee - a bar I used to cook at.  

We should be arriving there between 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 noon on Saturday.  If you live in Milwaukee follow us on Facebook or #worldslongestturkeytrot and come join us afterwards to celebrate.

I guarantee whether we make it or not, we will have a good time.  Who knows...maybe Dovi will join us for some miles.

If you say it out loud you have to at least TRY to do it!
