Penn Relays Flashback

Leave Comments   |   Filed under: Cooking With The Pros


 This weekend is one of the premiere events in the world of track and field. Penn Relays. A few years ago I went to Philly to hang out with my friends and enjoy a beautiful day. Life is a bit to busy this year to head down, so this is a flashback.

2012 I met up with Leslie and Shelly in Philly. By train, plane, and automobile. Actually just train and automobile.


Penn Relays are held of course at the University of Penn in Philadelphia. Not to be confused with Penn State. Some people don’t know!
