I – Eric, RunTheBluegrass Race Director – am committing to getting into PR shape by Race Week! My PR is 1:48:53 (2011), this fall my best was 1:55:38, so I’m working to knock off 30 seconds per mile.
And I want you to train alongside me these next 4 1/2 months!
And, if you PR on March 29th, at our Awards Ceremony, you win a hand-engraved, genuine Kentucky White Oak Bourbon Barrel Stave!
Boston Strong! Heather Strong!
Heather Abbott of Newport, Rhode Island – injured in 2013′s Boston Marathon bombing (she’s since had her lower left leg amputated, below her knee) – is RunTheBluegrass 2014′s Very Special Guest of Honor!
We are not only flying Heather (and her chosen loved one) into Lexington for Race Week, to give them a wonderful, unforgettable experience in Bluegrass country in late March, we are also donating $1000 of our own race proceeds to her medical expense fund.
If you would like to join us by donating an additional $1, $2, $5 or more when you register for our race, 100% of your donations will go directly toward getting Heather fully back on her feet!
Let us all be Heather Strong!
