Bourbon Chase

This past Friday and Saturday was the Bourbon Chase, a 200 mile relay run through central Kentucky and 6 bourbon distilleries.  I was captain of this team until my unfortunate ankle injury which then led to Jeremy being the official captain while I did all the grunt work.  I did get a nice blanket for all my troubles. 

Because I wasn't able to run but was still "captain" and I wasn't about to drive the 12 passenger van, I was the official navigator I guess. I rode shotgun in the van and kept track of the time log and was the gatorade girl when I could remember to do so. They also had a scavenger hunt game going on at the different exchanges.  Most of the time it involved answering a question on bourbon or the surrounding area or taking a picture of something silly.

The van had to park pretty far away at most of the exchanges so I did a LOT of walking. Considering I had not done any exercise in the last three months I was a little sore come Saturday night and Sunday. My non-existant right calf was actually hard as a rock with a muscle!! Woo hoo!!

We had a great time this year and everyone ran great! It did rain on us off and on but we actually finished 58 minutes ahead of our predicted times! We were with a great group of people and that made it all the more enjoyable!

Below are some pictures of the weekend.
