that Kentucky Jelly tastes NASTY!

Tshirt time. Good news - you can order a wicking shirt for $18 or a regular shirt for about $8ish. These are men's sizes - let me know what you need ASAP. I need all sizes by wednesday morning at the latest. Check your name on the shirt to make sure it's spelled right. Did I miss anyone? I ted g really going? Should we find out if he wants a shirt? What about bannister? Tell me. Tell me.

Here's the design:

This is the wicking shirt

That is a horse jumping over the Louisville skyline. Because we are like horses jumping over a city - which reminds me of my favorite haiku:

A horse jumps over
the fair city Louisville
we are so tired

Time to Vote!

WIcking Ts to wear in the race or T-Shirts to wear after?

The marathon is giving us wicking ts, but they're also giving them to 15,000 others. We could make our own so we could easily find each other during the race for $16ish or we could make tshirts to wear after for about $8.

I can always use another wicking T, but I also like me a good tshirt - so it's up to you. We have to decide in the next couple days.


P.S. Did you do your longest run this weekend?

I signed up

Even though Karen said the race was hilly, I signed up for Saturday's Ramble into spring. Gross. Jaymeson, too. Anyone else? I know there are many thinking about it. The next weekend (27th) is the Y's spring run, too. I'm thinking about the 15k if there is anyone else who wants to do it.

How is everyone doing? Scared? Feeling great? Have mono?

T-shirts: Amy made a good point and that is that we'll be getting wicking shirts from the actual race - so maybe we race in those and get cheaper matching shirts for after? Or would you rather pay more and get a wicking shirt? I need your feedback.

Kids Marathon

I need to know the names of all the kids running the 25 +1.2. Sienna, Camryn, Kate and Karli have all been working hard on it. Any others? Ryan? Kate? Brady?

I'm ordering medals, so correct name spelling, etc. is needed.

McKendree Ramble March 20

Sign up HERE.

I know that at least a few of us are planning on doing this, if not most. Sign up ends March 17. It's nice to have a race that goes about as far as we need to go that day. If you are running it, make sure to follow the schedule and run a shorter run the weekend before... because it's nice to have a break, right?

A good excuse to drink more chocolate milk

FROM A PRESS RELEASE ON A STUDY PRESENTED AT THE American College of Sports Medicine annual meeting.

James Madison University has found that lowfat chocolate milk provides muscle recovery equal and possibly even better than, high-carbohydrate recovery drinks with the same amount of calories.

The study adds to a growing body of evidence suggesting milk may be just as effective as some commercial sports drinks in helping athletes recover and rehydrate. Chocolate milk has the advantage of additional nutrients not found in most traditional sports drinks. Studies suggest that when consumed after exercise, milk’s mix of high-quality protein and carbohydrates can help refuel exhausted muscles. The protein in milk helps build lean muscle and recent research suggests it may reduce exercise-induced muscle damage. Milk also provides fluids for rehydration and minerals like calcium, potassium and magnesium that recreational exercisers and elite athletes alike need to replace after strenuous activity.
