I unintentionally omitted one giant detail in my county fair post.
I took second place in the women's straw bale toss! It's probably my proudest achievement at the fair this year. Especially considering last year I am pretty sure I placed last.
We just happened to be up at the show barn on the evening of the competition and I jumped in line to try my hand at it. I was expecting a repeat of last year's embarrassment but I ended up throwing the bale 26 feet.
That's right, girlfriend got strong.
