The Louisville Sports Commission Half-marathon took place this past weekend! I finished the race in 2:00:38. I would have loved to have a 1 instead of a 2 at the beginning of that time, but there will always be more races.
On Friday we picked up our packets/shirts with literally 2 minutes to spare since there is crazy construction from Cincy to Louisville. We had a nice filling dinner at steak n' shake (we both got grilled chicken sandwiches...so not too bad) and some free froyo at orange leaf.
Saturday morning we were up and at em pretty early. The weather was a bit cold, but we knew it was going to be sunny and get much warmer. The course was nice but they ran out of water at the 2nd water stop, and after the race you had to wait in line for about 15 minutes to get a bagel and fruit. I'll cut them a bit of slack since this was the first race.
The course went through the hilly area of Cherokee park not iroquois park like I mentioned on Friday (different park, just as many hills).
Overall, it was a fun race and a wonderful time visiting Mo!
