TBT: Emily’s Goodbye to Milwaukee

TBT brings us back to a sad time...when I left Milwaukee back in 2011. While I miss Milwaukee, I do really enjoy living in the Twin Cities. When you are leaving your home, obviously you need a going-away party. I love Mexican food, so it was also necessary to stop at one of the many great Mexican restaurants in Milwaukee.

The only hard part of the Color Run is getting the color off of you after the race. Let's just say we all took some very long showers to get all that color off. P.S. Protip for anyone color running this year: Keep your mouth closed when you run through the color stations. Trust Continue Reading
