Run the Bluegrass Two

Besides the racing, there’s much more to do in Lexington, Kentucky – like drinking bourbon and beer.

BuffaloTraceticket

We had a tour of Buffalo Trace Distillery. They had a Bourbon Bus take us out to the tour and back, and there was plenty of drinking on the bus.

BourbonSchool

Saturday night there was a Bourbon School to teach about the differences in bourbon. The document to the left is a reproduction of an actual alcohol prescription; the only way to get liquor legally during Prohibition was to get a doctor to prescribe it.

We had a tour of Ethereal Brewing. I really enjoyed the Old Gregg Brown Porter.

Run the Bluegrass

So I did this crazy thing over the weekend. My wife and daughter were going to run a half-marathon in Kentucky, and I decided to run the new 3.65 mile “Yearling” race they added this year.

Number99

I’d run a couple of 5K races locally, but I didn’t realize quite how hilly the area around Keeneland (where the race began) really is, until I had to slog up and down those hills on foot. However, it was rather picturesque.

But those mileage signs were coming up fast enough for my liking.

Mile2

It was also very windy that day, with 50mph gusts that I know had a big effect on a lot of the runners.

After it was over, as I walked to the car, I saw these sneakers abandoned at the starting line.

I wonder if the owner ran barefoot?
