I'm An Ambassador!

For the 2014 season, the Kentucky Derby Marathon and miniMarathon folks are doing something new.

They've decided to put together a group of runners and walkers to serve as race ambassadors who will help promote the race and help others with their training, among other things.

They were looking for a diverse group of people who have done the race (either the half or the full) for the last 3 years. While I met the criteria, I was nervous about applying when Jennifer sent me the application a few weeks ago since I'm still pretty shy (and they were looking for outgoing individuals). But running has become such a big part of my life, and I know I'll bring an interesting dynamic to things -- and I know I'll be blogging about it anyway -- so I decided to venture outside comfort zone and go for it.

Well I got news earlier this week that I'M IN!

Out of 60 applications they narrowed the list down to 16, and I made the cut!

Nothing has officially started just yet, but I'm really excited already.

Since I'll get a free entry into the race as one of the perks, I suppose this means I'm officially registered for my second marathon!

Now if only they had a fancy little logo I could add to the blog...
