Charleston Weekend Visit

2022 Charleston Weekend Visit

What should have been a check mark next to South Carolina half marathon, turned into a Charleston weekend visit. I was bummed to have another state race cancelled. But our tickets were purchased, our airbnb booked and a dog sitter reserved so we still went and made the most of it!
