Journeys provides inspirational stories
By Gary Ridderbusch

The 18th annual Journeys Marathon, sponsored by the Eagle River Area Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Center last Saturday, featured many inspirational stories of runners of all ages.

Some runners completed their first marathon while others established personal goals for the time it took them to complete the 26.2-mile course from near Boulder Junction to Eagle River or the 13.1-mile half marathon course.

The race also included a runner from Peshtigo, who ran his 99th full marathon competing at Journeys. Chad Counard will run his 100th marathon this weekend.

At the Journeys, the 54-year-old Counard finished 46th
