Bourbon Chase, Day 3: Woodford Reserve

31 Oct

We’re into Day 3 in Kentucky, and Day 2 of the Bourbon Chase relay race.  It’s a loooong day.  Only 2 hours of sleep the night before and a middle-of-the-night run.  (I ran 5.1 miles starting at 4am.)  Our final runner for this leg passes off the bracelet and we head to get some breakfast (at Dairy Queen, as it turns out).  The hand-off from our van to Van 1 takes place at the Woodford Reserve distillery.  Unfortunately, the weather is crappy, with spitting rain.
