A weekend at the races

Winding down a very fun weekend. On Saturday, I went with a friend down to the Grand Prix of Cleveland. My friend is a HUGE fan of the Champ Car World Series of racing, so this is his big sports weekend of the year. We walked around and I got a very thorough history of the racing series, and learned just about everything there is to know about the series, the cars, the drivers, and everything else. It was all really interesting and I had a lot of fun. And it helped that the weather was amazing. Also, since it is not Nascar racing, the “redneck factor” was relatively low.
Today, I got up earlier and headed out to Cleveland Heights to run in A Most Excellent Race, which benefits Camp Cheerful which is for children with disabilities. Last year I ran in this race, and it was the first race I ever ran in. This year, it became the first race that my girlfriend Kristy would run. I did the 10K, she did the 5K, and both of us were happy with our results and had a fun time. I managed to cut nearly 15 minutes off my time from last year, finishing the 6.2 mile run in 46:54.
