2022 #TridgeToBridge240 – Day 2/3

Up two hours before the sun, I checked my phone only to find that the forecast had changed….. and not in my favor. I was on the road by 5:30am, and roughly 90 minutes later the precipitation began. For the remainder of the morning I made my way up the road, cold and soaked by…

2022 #TridgeToBridge240 – Day One

Many years ago now, as my birthday was approaching, my parents asked me to make a decision regarding a gift. They were well aware there was a fancy electronic device I had my eye on; I’m sure I had left no room for doubt regarding that fact. Also however, around the same time as my…

The 2022 #TridgeToBridge240

What started as a #StupidIdea a little more than 4 years ago has turned into one of my favorite parts of the summer. Over the next four to five(?) days this group of regular people will make their way, un-crewed and un-aided, a little over 240 miles from Midland to Mackinaw City. The 3rd annual…

2021 #TridgeToBridge240 – Day Four

Today started much like yesterday; temperatures in the upper 30’s, but with overcast skies and a steady 15-20 mph headwind from the north. Like so many things in life that are out of our control, if we stay positive and keep moving forward, eventually the situation will improve. And by late morning the sun had…

2021 #TridgeToBridge240 – Day Three

Today was hard. I ran longer and farther than either of the first two days. The temperature dropped to 39F overnight, then struggled to reach 50F this afternoon. The unsupported nature of this event means that the only clothes I have are the ones I started with. I planned for the change in weather, but…

Welcome to Day Three

I’ve covered almost 23 miles since I started just after midnight this morning. It’s currently 39F, and I’m absolutely freezing. I wouldn’t change a thing. Good morning 😊 Tracking.MattsStupidIdeas.comTridgeToBridge240.com

2021 #TridgeToBridge240 – Day Two

This afternoon I came across two men from a construction company working on putting up some sort of industrial fence. As I passed by, one of them set down his cordless drill, smiled, and waved.“Your buddies are about an hour ahead of ya!!” he yelled across the four lane roadway. This was one of at…

2021 #TridgeToBridge240 – Day One

Why would anyone do that?!? For the experience of every day out here. It’s meeting the people that work in the small, family owned stores, that we so often zip right by in our cars without giving a second thought. It’s seeing all the special things these towns you’ve never heard of are known for.…
