Can you believe that I’ve never been to Put-in-Bay in my almost 15 years of living in Northeast Ohio? Crazy, I know! That’s finally changing this September, though. As I’ve mentioned before, this year is my “golden birthday” where I’m turning 25 on the 25th. To celebrate, I’m spending the weekend before my birthday at Put-in-Bay, and I’ll also be doing the 5K at Put-in-Bay! This scenic waterfront race is going to be the perfect way to celebrate turning 25 🙂 And of course getting together with friends and livin’ it up island style!
