if the rest of summer is anything like this weekend, it's going to be a fun one

Who knew this weekend would prove to be an absolute blast from the amazing 80 weather to a beach trip to a kick ass race to seeing long lost friends. Not to mention on Sunday, I was up at 5:45 a.m. and went strong -  I mean college strong, people - all day until 8:30 p.m. That's one for the record books when you add in 13.1 miles in 80 degree heat, drinking and walking all over to local watering holes.

Where was I? Well if you followed me on your FourSquare, you are probably tired of seeing all my checkins - I couldn't help it. I just kept going and going, especially with friends in town.

1 Indians game on Friday

3 boys, 1 girl - I'm a great wing woman  and don't forget it!

1 trip to the rooftop of the Velvet Dog

(Really, there are no pictures needed.)

1 run in with the infamous Super Pimp who is from Lorain - duh, I was born there!

west side meets east side of Lorain

1 morning football game


1 trip to Edgewater park where I was hit on by 14 year olds and saw a couple dressed up as a Transformer and Cinderella.

such a relaxing 3 hours

1 half marathon which brought in friends from Chicago, DC and Texas where it was hot as hell, my right foot was some serious pain from mile 3 to 9 until it went numb and the pain transferred to my left knee. But I finished, refused to stop and probably have indirectly created some kind of stress fracture. Go me!

post race with my running partner, Melissa


part of the crew post race

2 trips to the casino

Enter through Tower City or Public Square to avoid lines

5 trips to various bars from downtown to Ohio City

beers = reward
bud lights; her first panini; piggy back rides

group pushing strong after 12 hours and 13.1 miles later

Another weekend quickly gone by, another week ahead of us but after I make it through that, there is a possible Put-In-Bay trip in my future with a three-day weekend. THREE-DAY WEEKEND!

Does it get any better than this?

Ah you met Super Pimp. I await that day (maybe because I'm from Lorain too).

Toni Morrison, Father Guido Sarducci, Jason Molina and Super Pimp.

The city's definitely given its fair share.

Looks like a great weekend!
