My first marathon was the Derby Festival Marathon in Louisville, KY in 2009. I had planned to do it again in 2010 but my husband having shoulder surgery put a stop to my plans. So I was excited to see if I could improve on my time from 2009- I barely made the cut off then. I was looking forward to a rematch, that was until I found out they made some course changes. So although, it wouldn't be the same course, it was still 26.2 miles for me to get through.
I rode to the race with my co worker's husband, Dale. My husband was going to pick me up after the race. My stepson and his fiancee' was flying in from California today and we had plans for lunch after the race with them.
