Blogging on the road to the Louisville Triple Crown of Running

Rhodes City Run

This past Saturday I did the Rhodes City Run. I did it in 57 minutes 4 seconds. Not bad. I wanted to keep it under an hour, so I met my goal. The one thing I learned from this run was to take the water that is offered at the water stops. I was very dehydrated at the end of the race. I will definitely take at least 2 waters during the 10-miler and maybe three during the mini.

I ran for 7.5 miles tonight along the Levee Trail. It goes from River View Park at the end of Greenwood Road to Riverside, the Farnsley Moreman Landing in Southwest Jefferson County. Coming from this area, there aren't too many places to run . What I like about this route is no automobile traffic, plus the trail is marked every 10th of a mile. It is 3.7 miles one way. I like the view of the Ohio River will I run and the hills in Southern Indiana. The only bad thing at times they have cobble Stone walks, which is awkward to run on.

Only 10 days to the Papa John's run. I am a little bit nervous about the hills in Iroquois Park, especially where come in the race, but I am confident I can conquer them.

Happy Running

About Me

I've never been considered an athlete; I didn't compete in sports in high school or college. I just started running in August 2006 as a fun way to keep healthy and stay in shape after losing 55 pounds. I've run in three races since then: the Race for the Cure 5K and the Outrunning Autism 5K in October and the Snowman Shuffle 4 Mile in January.

I'm currently training with the Running 101 group at Fleet Feet Sports, preparing for my first Triple Crown of Running. My goal is to finish each race. I also plan to run in the Kentucky Derby Festival miniMarathon.
