Completing the UW-L Turkey Trot 5k has become a widow’s weekend tradition for my mom, my friend, and her mom. We always walk the event as our moms are not runners. The course is scenic, the shirts cute, and the time together fun. This year in honor of no shave November, my friend bought us all mustaches. It was the coldest Turkey Trot yet with temperatures of only 13 degrees (windchill -4) during out walk.
I love the marsh area the course takes us through.
After our chilly walk, we headed out to brunch at a local breakfast joint with awesome food.
Then we used some of the great coupons that came in our race packet to get buy 1, get 1 free coffee from Cabin Coffee.
Next, we headed to the Elmaro Vineyard near La Crosse where we enjoyed tasting wine, looking at fun stuff to buy, and more tasting of wine.
It was the perfect widow’s weekend, and I left with my wine wall stocked.
