Thursday is always one of my favorite days of the camping trip. It started with our annual Frisbee Football Tournament. Several new runners earned the bragging rights of being champs for another year! Then everyone returned back to camp, gets their run in and get dressed up for our night out in Bemidji. Our group of 37 quickly filled up our favorite pizza place in Bemidji. Everyone enjoys the eating out, then driving to see the course around Lake Bemidji where our long run will take place Friday morning. Next the team headed out to enjoy the air conditioned comfort of watching a movie. Friday is the final challenge of the camping trip, the run around the lake. Its a very coordinated effort for everyone to pick up the runners at different locations of 5, 7, 8, 10, and 12 mile markers. It was a lot of fun to see so many of the runners push themselves to run further than they ever have. It was another great week of camping and everyone had a blast.
