2015 Kentucky Derby miniMarathon Recap: I Made Mine A Double!

The Kentucky Derby Festival miniMarathon (and Marathon) was the second race part of the Kentucky Half Classic! Note: KDF’s miniMarathon is the half marathon distance totaling 13.1 miles. On the last weekend of April, my HB and I arrived in Louisville for a fun-filled, festival weekend! When we arrived, we headed straight to the Expo to pick up our packets. As soon as we walked in we saw a sign wishing all of the runners “Good Luck” on the race!

I mean…who doesn’t love beautiful pictures? I sure do and I look forward to learning more!

Hi friends!

I just received NEW Galloway Blogger summer running tips from Jeff Galloway to share with you all! It has been so hot here in the South. *soul cry* I was so excited to get past winter that I forgot how hot summer can get. Let me just be honest, fall is the only season that does not come to me with baggage. We just belong together! We’re like Mike and Ike (yes, they are back together)…Bey and Jay-Z…Bebops/freeze cups and summertime. Back to this heat. This summer has come with a few challenges, including  having no other option but to use the treadmill (dreadmill). Well, I’m excited to share these summer running tips with you!
