Days 312 and 313 -- Cawker City

Cawker City, Kansas lays claim to the World's Largest Ball of Twine, which gives me an excuse to drop in on The World's Largest Collection of the World's Smallest Versions of the World's Largest Things. Erika recognizes four "World's Largest Balls of Twine." This is the largest created by a community. There's a more-or-less equally sized ball of twine in Darwin, Minnesota, created by one man over 29 years. However, the one in Cawker City is still growing!

I ran 7.2 miles in Grandma Jogger's town on Wednesday, before we left for our minivacation. Then on Thursday I ran about 5.3 miles in the University City where we went. I had only meant to go about four, but I got lost. I took a shortcut.
