Cardboard Bobsleds Successfully Crashed Down the Cannonsburg Hillside Today

Today's Cardboard Bobsled event at Cannonsburg was something I've been looking forward to for quite a while now!  What could be more fun than a bunch of people out on a hill, building bobsleds from cardboard and duct tape, not caring if the thing really held up on the way down the slope?

Thanks to everyone who came out and had fun with us today!  More than 50 bobsleds raced at least partway down the slope, creatively decorated and with people in costume, to the amusement of all.

Jackie Runs The Grand Rapids Half Marathon

Sunday was the 10th annual Grand Rapids Marathon and Half Marathon. Along with thousands of other people from around Michigan and other surrounding states I laced up my running shoes and joined the madness! It was unusually cold for how it has been as of late and I wasn't exactly prepared. I am actually rarely prepared though so no surprise there! In order to understand how this race went down, I have to tell you a story.
