This past weekend Chris and I took a much needed long weekend to Hocking Hills (now only about 35 minutes from where we live). HH has been the place we spend our anniversary, and we love going to the same cabin (last year we missed due to my lack of vacation time). This year we returned to our home away from home, and we had a blast. Chris and I hiked some of the trail he would be running (his first 10k race and a trail race as well) the following day. We ended the day making pizza for dinner (inspired from our time in Rome) and smores for dinner.
Here are some great pictures:
The following day Chris would be running his first 10k in the Indian Hills run (a trail run which had a 5k, 20k, 40k, and 60k going on at the same time). He kept worrying about getting lost or breaking a bone, and well I worried about that too (I just didn't admit it). Well, oh thee off little faith, I learned my lesson when I watched him charge up a hill with only one mile to go and he was just speeding past the other runners (which at this point many were slowing or walking, and boy I could not blame them). In the end Chris ended up second in his age group and 1oth overall, but even more important he walked away without any spills. After the race we went back to the cabin before going out to Cantwell Cliff for another hike. We then ended the evening with a wonderful dinner at the Inn at Cedar Falls.
