Kentucky, Running

Kentucky: Run the Bluegrass 7-Miler

Run the Bluegrass again? Yep! But not the half. I signed up for the 7-miler. If you need a reminder, this course is hilly. That’s not any kind of exaggeration. I’m not saying “hilly”...

I recently registered for a marathon and have started my training plan for it. As such, I’ve started considering my upcoming halfs as “training runs.” I know this is typical, but I still have...
