Weekend Recap

Friday = Italian Festival in Canton. This year they had Zoppe Italian Circus there, which has been around since 1842. It's 6 generations of Zoppe family performers with Nino the Clown as the main attraction. It was amazing, I loved it! In August they are coming back to a Medieval Fair, I hope I get to go back and see them.

Saturday = Ran 16 miles, went shopping, knitted, got drinks & dessert at Bricco (Yummy!) with "North Hill's hottest married couple" Guy & Jolene.
Sunday = Tag sales (got 2 awesome vintage coats, one for $1.50 and the other for $5). I'll have to post some pictures of the coats soon, they are too cute. Biked 22 miles. While biking we saw a deer, a snapping turtle, horses, bunnies and a rainbow, how cool is that? Oh and i ended up with a ginormous bruise cause i don't have any stopping capabilities.

Rainy Bike Ride

My friend Nate and I went biking yesterday on the towpath. It poured on us and we felt so tough riding in the rain and getting really muddy. We were soaked! How fun!

BTW that's mud on my hat!

Hatfield-McCoy Half Marathon

Well we did it. My friends and i went to West Virginia for the Hatfield-McCoy Marathon/Half Marathon. We did the half marathon and loved every minute of it. Cute town with friendly people. Not to mention we all placed in our age groups. I got 3rd in my age group at 2:04, and my friends each got first in their age groups. If you want to run in West Virginia this is the race to do. We're definitely coming back next year. $40 entry fee, free pasta dinner the night before the race, free pulled pork sandwiches after the race, medals, trophies, only a 5 hour drive, you can't beat it.
