The countdown is on! This time next week I’ll be writing this post from the sunny, sand filled beaches of Mexico, AND I couldn’t be more excited for some time away from it all. It’ll be a nice little calm before the storm. Now that March Madness is over, and Big Blue Nation has quieted down until next year it’s time to move full steam ahead into the Kentucky Derby Festival season. (P.S. I’ll be taking over Kentucky Tourism’s Instagram account for the full week leading up to Derby, heard it here first!)
First up on my roster is The Kentucky Derby Festival Marathon, and TBH I was a slightly trepidatious about the whole thing after how little I was able to train the last few months between the cold weather, travel, and feeling under the weather. But I’m happy to report that I was able to knock out a 20 mile run this Saturday, and based on that run I’ll be able to finish the full marathon under my goal time of 4 hours. If you’re feeling adventurous registration for the Marathon/miniMarathon is open until the 15th! Drop me a line, and I may even have a coupon code for 10% off your registration.
