Maybe it was beginners luck, but the first day was easy peasy. I spent the night with my lovely second family in DC. Remember my roommate from the Dominican Republic?

I pulled off at a great rest stop (Cumberland, Maryland I think?) and ran all around and had a little workout of my own on a patch of grass. Besides the 90 degree heat, it was great. I got nice and sweaty, had a great hummus lunch, and was ready to go.
And then I drove forever. Tons of music. Miles on miles on miles. But Cincinnati came soon enough though! I’m staying with some friends of a good friend of mine, she graduated and left but has some friends still studying an living near the University of Cincinnati.
