Blogging the Bourbon Chase

Saturday 10/11 7:23 PM

After 33 hours, 7 minutes, and 49 seconds we are finished with our 200 mile relay! After the past 60 minutes, I tasted bourbon from 4 distilleries. Would I do this again? Probably.

Our last runner is on the course.

Biscuits and gravy at the church, y'all.

At America in the middle of the night: car dealerships, crosses, and election signs.

Wake me up before you go go! That's my at bat song for Leg 19, coming up at just before 2:00 AM.

All of our runners have run one leg. We all met up at the Danville exchange point. After warming ourselves at the Hub Van 2 is catching a nap at Danville High School gym. Zzz.

Darkness has descended upon the land. I had a delightful taco from a roadside pop-up stand in Perryville.

Yours truly is back in the van after completing Leg 7! We switched off at Maker's Mark. My run was hilly but I ran at my projected pace. JP is out on the trail now in glorious weather.

Van 2 is having a less than spectacular logistical start. Meanwhile please enjoy this photo of Captain Belinda in our chariot.

Van 1 is at the start at Jim Beam! Here is a picture from Lisa: 

I am in Van 2. We have to zigzag to pick up the rest of our team. We start this afternoon after meeting up at Maker's Mark.
