Going home to Utica, NY

Well I am leaving Thursday morning, 7a.m. out of Las Vegas to NYC. From NYC I am taking a train to Albany where my parents will pick me up. It will be nice to go home.
My best friend growing up, Brian, is getting married on July 4th, that should be fun. Two cousins are graduating High School, one party on July 5th and one on July 12th.
On July 12th, I am running in the Boilermaker road race in the morning. This is the big race I run in every year back home. My brothers, father, sisters etc. run in it. I love it! Its such a great race, a lot of community participation. Beer and food at the end of the race.
It will be tough with all the temptations to eat while I am home. I am sure my mom will make some great food. Some of its healthy and some of its not. Fresh fruit and vegetables though, which will be nice. They sell it on the corner near my house. Yeah I grew up near farms. The pizza in Utica is incredible. I don't eat much pizza in Vegas, but everytime I am home, I tend to eat a fair amount.
I will update the trip at some point.

Have a great week and weekend everyone!!

Have a great time!

I used to eat wings every time I went home [buffalo], but did not the last time. That sure surprised me.
