Welcome To Ohio

45 mins.
6 miles

So 24 hours later, we've traveled to three more states. These states include Texas, where we drove after work last night because we had to catch a flight from DFW this morning; Kentucky, which is actually where the Cincinnati airport is located (possibly the only airport located in another state than its name? Could be a good trivia question/answer); and finally Ohio, where we are visiting until Wednesday for Jordan's sister Whitney's high school graduation.

After dropping our stuff off at the house and getting settled, we set off for Jordan's youngest brother's and sister's baseball games. Actually, correction: Jordan went straight to the game, while Whitney and I headed to Chick-Fil-A for a tasty lunch. Jordan had said we would run sometime during the baseball games, but I didn't quite realize that "sometime" meant "approximately 10 minutes after you get back from stuffing your face with waffle fries." So, while I was hoping to relax for a bit upon finishing my meal, Jordan was practically lacing up his shoes by the time Whitney and I got back to the park. Awesome.

So, do you want the good news or the bad news? Ok, good news: by looping around the grass fields surrounding the baseball and soccer games, we managed to stay on soft surfaces for over half this run. Bad news: upon leaving the grass fields and starting the run back home, I may have had to stop and dry heave once or twice. I basically felt nauseous on the entire run. Which was unfortunate, because otherwise I would've totally enjoyed the balmy weather and the change of scenery. Good thing we'll be here for a few more days.
