Gold Cup with Sisters

The weather was more than perfect.. and my company couldn’t get any better at Gold Cup. My two sisters Jenny and Tricia joined me in The Plains for the day. I enjoyed judging the hat contest and tailgates. From derby pie to mint julep jello shots… it was quite the tasty task. We watched a couple races and then headed to downtown Middleburg to get a bite at The French Hound.

Oh Snap! Gold Cup brings big hats, runaway horse!

Congrats to Bubble Economy the big winner in the 85th Running of the Virginia Gold Cup! The ladies were styling, the tents were packed, the tailgates were immaculate and the weather so darn good… even a horse didn’t want to be contained! [Photo Credit: Vithaya Photography]

I'm racing in the Kentucky Derby!

I am a lover of the races. I cried when I watched Seabiscuit. I balled when Barbaro took his last breath. I always honor the dress code no matter where the race is I attend. Last year I broke the rule… passed over Lilly Pulitzer for Betsey Johnson. This year I’m doing something ludicrous. I’m racing!

Kentucky Derby Marathon here I come.

I’ve hesitated announcing I’m running another 26.2 miles in a month because I was unsure if I was mentally there yet. It’s been more than a year since I did the Marine Corps Marathon and it’s taken time to believe it could be done again. I ran 13 miles this past weekend and it’s exactly what I needed. Half way there… and perfect place to be just a month before race day. Yep, BTW  it’s April 24th.

This is the first time I’ll get close to the Kentucky Derby and I’m fine that it’s not all about the big hats. It’s cool that I can instead boast about my bigger feet as the swelling sets in. I went to buy new running shoes the other day and the guy said what size? I said “11”. He said “ELEVEN?”. I said yes. He said “ELEVEN?”. I said yes “Eeee-Leven”.

You should’ve seen his face when they actually fit.
