Gettysburg 2017

The day before my run in the Sole Challenge 24 hour ultra in Fayetteville, PA, we spent the afternoon at Gettysburg National Military Park. It was a good way to relax the day before for the race, visit our 18th national park, learn a little history, and window shop in the town of Gettysburg. I had no time to participate in a junior ranger program so I bought a patch.
