The Craig Fahle Show

Author of "A 1000-Mile Walk on the Beach"

Instead of having a mid-life crisis, Loreen Niewenhuis took a walk....a 1000 mile walk! Niewenhuis tackled the 1000-mile hike around Lake Michigan in 10 segments spread over 7 months. On the final days of winter, she took her first steps south from Chicago and, with brief breaks between segments, completely encircled the lake and approached the same spot from the north in the first days of fall. Craig sits down with her to hear a little bit about her trip -- what she learned about herself, as well as our state.
