This was my first in-person road race since the pandemic began. I was downright giddy at the start line and couldn't wait to take off like a thoroughbred through the Parklands at Floyds Fork. It was meaningful to me because I am DONE with virtual racing (except for MarineParents virtual racing of course). The Parklands is filled with gardens of beautiful flowers and wildlife. I'm so glad that I took photos of flowers before the race to burn off nervous energy so I didn't get too distracted. Still, I found myself following a bird with my eyes several times. Blending nature and running is the best combination for me.

My legs felt strong and I even came in sixth (out of 35 in my age group). It was so hot and humid at my 9:05 start time. I was a hot mess as I crossed the finish line to cheers from other runners. Now that is something I REALLY missed.

I will do this race again if I happen to be in Louisville when it runs.
