The Cudahy Lions Sweet Applewood Festival was graced with excellent weather and had a huge turnout! Thanks to everyone who came to this event and helped make it a success. As always, I ran into a lot of people I knew and everyone had fun.
A number of people asked me how I did in the Cudahy Classic 5/10 Race. I finished the 10-mile race in 1:31:35 ( one hour, 31 minutes and 35 seconds) which is an average pace of 9' 10" per mile. My son finished in 1:22:29 which is an average pace of 8' 15" per mile. There was perfect weather and everyone enjoyed the race.

Hello Readers! I hope all of you had a chance to take your dog swimming at the Sheridan Park Pool. I took my dog, Jet, although she was scared and didn't really enjoy it too much. She was able to swim but seemed afraid of the water. I think she was also a little nervous being around so many unfamiliar dogs. She seemed happy afterward, however, and I gave her a little ice cream as a special treat for being so brave!

Did you know the City of Cudahy has a new business development website? I didn't either until today. The address is www.cudahy4business.com . Check it out! I found it to be very interesting and informative and I'm sure a lot of people do not know about it yet.
