Well, almost as good as a marathon skate. This is the first ever ultramarathon on the Hennepin trail. It's a perfect route - flat, car-free, and the trees will at least help to give a break from the wind and sun to an extent (well, maybe occasionally). Scenic, and interesting. What a great flat, car-free route!

This blog weighs in on topics such as long-distance skating, the Illinois canals, cycling, and a variety of related (and occasionally not-so-related) topics. I'd like to correspond with others interested in skating the Hennepin and I&M canals.
