As we all know I haven’t been running. However, I decided to be a spectator tomorrow at the Air Force Marathon in Dayton, Ohio and cheer on my friends. I decided to take a half day at work today and a friend invited me to go with him to the Expo to see if that would help put me in a better “running mood”. Well, one of my other friends running the race said I needed to look at the back of the Kentucky Derby Festival Marathon sheet because he thought I would find it funny. I walked round the Expo (found $10 arm warmers!!) but I didn’t see their booth until the end. I looked at the back and I didn’t get what my friend found funny. It just seemed normal to me. (He is a guy so I had in my mind it was some stupid joke that usually guys enjoy but usually us ladies don’t care for, you know the ones.) I texted my friend and he told me what he found funny.
For those of you who don’t remember or are just recent readers, I ran the Kentucky Derby Festival Marathon in the spring of 2012. I started out great but the hills at the end of the course killed me. Majority of the race is flat but where there are hills…there are hills. I thought the elevation chart was pretty misleading or not detailed enough. So, knowing this he thought I would find their first line fairly funny (or at least he did). I looked at their website and the course is still the same but it looks like the elevation chart is a little better. A little better. What do you think?
