Segments

Papa Johns 10 Miler

My wife and her best friend, Kirsten, have done all the events in this year’s Louisville Triple Crown of running. Yesterday was the last leg, the Papa John’s 10 Miler. Here’s video of Amber and Kirsten crossing the finish line. (May want to turn down your volume a bit before watching.) Kickass results. I’m super proud of her: (Update) […]
