Let the games begin, we start at 10!

Just found out we will be starting our adventures at 10am on Friday at the Jim Beam Distillery’s American Outpost located in Clermont, KY. Our first runner is Amy Jones, so go check out her bio on our Team Members page right now!

The start times of the Bourbon Chase are staggered based on team pacing (some of us are speedsters and some of us are slow and we embrace that) to have everyone finish in beautiful downtown Lexington (woot woot!) for the finish line celebration.

Segue to another type of celebration… the one where we reach our fundraising goal! We are currently at $3,331, which is 67% of our $5,000 goal. We are close but could still use your help! Remember that we are running for the National Hospice Foundation and locally the Hospice of the Bluegrass. It’s a wonderful cause, a tax deduction and will make you a better person. Really. Those are all true.  Here’s the link to our super-duper secure online fundraising page: http://www.active.com/donate/runtoremember2011/lwathen1

With today’s posting of the start times, it gave us a chance to check out some of our competition. There are some great names among the 250 teams running this year. Some of our faves include Charlie Sheensplints, Corn Stars, and This Sounded Like a Good Idea at Pazzo’s. None are as supreme as Nick Ryan’s Ridge Runners though.

Ooh! Speaking of, we have our logo. Check it-
