And so it Begins…

Happy Friday (Saturday now, but still happy), friends! It’s been a long week, but it’s SO CLOSE to being time to move into the good part. My week has been action packed in every way. Work has been busy (not such a bad thing) with lots of excitement going on. Jen and I are plotting our family vacation this year and are working between Myrtle Beach or DisneyWorld. It ain’t cheap haha.

I’ve managed to run 4 days so far this week and plan on running a semi-long one tomorrow. The early wake ups are starting to wear me down a little and I need to focus on getting my butt in bed earlier if I’m going to keep doing it. I’m still running what I want, when I want, how I want for the most part and I don’t have a training plan. However, I DID sign up for some stuff! April is going to be a busy month. 🙂

Race #1 – The Ville to Ville Craft Brew Relay

This will be my first relay ever! The race starts in Asheville, NC and ends up in Greenville, SC for a total of 75 miles. As the name implies, THERE WILL BE CRAFT BREW. I should end up running one or two legs of the race, which means no more than 20 miles or so total. Our team isn’t really all that competitive, so I can run at a semi-leisurely pace and I don’t require a ton of intense training. I like that.

Just tell me how far to the next brewery. 🙂

Race #2 – The Kentucky Derby Festival Marathon and MiniMarathon

2 weeks later, it’ll be a trip to Louisville, KY for the mini marathon down in Louisville, KY. I have several reasons to be excited about this!

Special edition whiskey? Sounds better than regular edition whiskey.
  • There will be whiskey. There are several distilleries that I’d love to visit while I’m there.
  • I randomly won free whiskey! Shoutout to @therunchat on Twitter for getting me hooked up with that. They can also save you $5 if you decide to sign up by using code CHAT2019.
  • I’m excited like a kid to go to the Louisville Slugger factory. Baseball bats!!!

I’m on the fence about whether I’m going to really “race” this one and try to PR or just enjoy it. We shall see…
