Most of the above gang is getting together for some major celebrating this weekend and I’m crazy super excited about it.
There are obviously some big races happening this weekend. The first is Derby. Like last year, my closest college roommates and I are meeting up in Louisville to party hop and celebrate. But while last year it was just about the Derby, this year it is also about celebrating the engagement of our dearest, Brittany. Her sister hosts an annual Derby party, which in and of itself is a blast, but this year, we’ll be cheers’ing Brittany and her beloved’s sure bet as well. It is going to be awesome.
Then I’ll zipping home to support the many Flying Pig runners that I know and love, including my baby’s daddy (I had to to employ that phrase just once). Kenny’s introduction to the Flying Pig is quite hilarious as he actually ran the full marathon on a whim. Literally. He didn’t register, decided to run the half marathon rogue in preparation for a triathlon, and at the eight or so mile split, he looked at his buddy and said, I’m just going to run the whole thing. Didn’t train, took a phone call from me around mile twenty, and finished the race in killer time. He’s an animal and has been officially running ever since (I think this is his fourth or fifth…). Anyway, I love the Pig and look forward to seeing any and all runners that I know out there!
So hopefully you’ve got similar plans celebrating both of these great sports this weekend. Please share with me your plans and fashions, Derby and/or race style…I’d love to see it all!
