The Derby Festival Mini Marathon

Yesterday was a big day for us! We spent Friday night in Louisville and then got up bright and early (4:45 our time) for the Kentucky Derby Festival Half Marathon! It was a great time and I am so proud of Drew for running. He ran the race in 2 hours and almost 2 minutes. His goal was to do it under two hours but I told him that I thought this was surely close enough. I'm not sure he agrees, but I think he did great!
There were so many people that entered the race. I think Drew said that there were 15,000 and over 650 in his age group. He said that the start was a nightmare because of all the people! I can't even imagine.

Jennifer (my cousin mentioned here) let us spend the night at her house and then went with us yesterday morning. It was great to spend some time with her also!
He got this cute finishers medal that I was pretty sure he was going to wear all day yesterday!
