June 10, 2023 – Jackson, Wi – My mom, Sarah Krebs, is on the adventure of a lifetime, running 1,150 miles on the Ice Age Trail in Wisconsin in honor of her friend Corey who died of pancreatic cancer.
Day 7 – Mom was able to run most of the day. We learned today that there is a 100 ft. beaver dam on the trail. In total, mom ran 33.76 miles today. The bugs were so bad they would follow mom into the screen tent we have.
They would also follow the truck, trying to get in. today mom ate bananas, chocolate PeanutButter and jelly, sausage, chips, and candy. Hopefully mom can run more tomorrow.
Day 6 – My mom’s shin was feeling better today. Mom ate one waffle, hardboiled egg, watermelon gummies, hi-chews, pizza pringles, bananas, bacon cheeseburger, and fries.
When she came back from running the Mondeaux Esker segment, she said that it looked like the trail was never even touched. She thinks people should go out and fix the trail.
Mom was able to run a little bit today thankfully. She run/walked in total 31.07. Maybe, tomorrow her shin will feel better.
Day 5 – My mom ended up with a hurting shin at the end. So today, she had no choice but to walk 31.18 miles.
She ate a cheeseburger, 4 power balls from Robert, 3 bananas, watermelon gummies, half of a bagel & donut, and pizza Pringles.
Her attitude was really good today even though her shin was hurting. Her shin will hopefully be better tomorrow.
On Tuesday, my mom started running at 7:40 a.m. She had a banana, a cheeseburger from Dylans Dairy, and a lot of candy.
She was in a really good mood, she said after one segment, “I was attacked by a veloceraptor.” She was referring to a grouse. Overall she ran 48.5 miles.
She had a great day. She hopefully will do as good of a job she did today, tomorrow.
My name is Abel and I’m reporting on her progress.
My mom started today around 6:40 a.m. She ran 49.5 miles today. She had another pb&j, some cucumbers, and pizza Pringles for lunch.
My dad, Ben Krebs, shaved his big beard off in the afternoon. My mom’s face was priceless.
She was going strong, but she was getting tired.
