I am thinking about flying back to my hometown (New Albany, IN) to run the Kentucky Derby Festival Half-Marathon on April 28th.
Since it is now January 21st, I have about 12 weeks to train; which is WAY better than trying to cram my training into 8 weeks like I did last time. It would’ve worked if I hadn’t gotten injured, but I was putting a lot of pressure on myself, and it wasn’t fun. I want this to be fun! I think it would be SO cool to run my first half in my hometown. I need to make this decision soon, so I’ll definitely keep everyone posted. Are any of you from the Louisville area running either the full or the half in April? Let me know, I would love to meet up!
