RED EPISODE #56: LAST WEEK OF TRAINING BEFORE BLUEGRASS, CELEBRATING A NINJA, & RECOMMENDATIONS FOR RUN THE BLUEGRASS
Welcome to our second official audio episode of the Run Eat Drink Podcast!
This week, we are still at home training for our next big race! We are excited to get to Run the Bluegrass at the end of this month in Lexington, Kentucky. Jeff Galloway assigned us cadence drills, acceleration gliders, and quarter miles to hit in a certain target time this week.
We also saw some posts on social media this week about DNFs (Did Not Finish) at races. Most of the time, having been one who has had a DNF, it is really hard to talk about or even admit to friends and family. I consider it brave to talk about it, it is also courageous to take yourself out of the race to avoid further injury, and I feel like it is a great motivator for getting healthy and training for a comeback, having had a great comeback in 2018 at the Wine and Dine Half Marathon Weekend.
Nevermind Awesome Bar and Eatery is a place we talked about last week. Shannon Yates, owner and chef, put together a fundraiser for Morgan Wright, or Morgan the Moose, our local celebrity from American Ninja Warrior, as he headed to Atlanta to compete in and film his episodes for ANW Season 11! I know we talked about running into Morgan last week, but this week, we were able to get to his fundraiser at Nevermind Awesome Bar and Eatery and do a live interview with him. That meant we got to have awesome fried chicken and fish and chips that Shannon made for his fundraiser. So tasty!
Nevermind Awesome Bar and Eatery also offered us the chance to get Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale by Lexington Brewing Company in order to get ready for our trip. It was a wonderful beer full of caramel and vanilla notes, but not too sweet, so it could stand up to the delicious food. Apparently, Lexington Brewing Company will be 10-15 minutes away from where we are staying for the race this weekend. I hope we get to tour the brewery! Rumor has it they also have a distillery.
THAT’S A WRAP
