We arrived in Louisville around 5 and checked into our super fancy downtown historic hotel (thank you Hilton Honors points from M's work).
We quickly hit up the expo to pick up our shirts and bibs for Saturday's race and then found our way to some yummy local pizza and liquid carbs.
Our next stop was to take part in another event associated with the Derby party: The Great Balloon Glow. It's basically a big field full of tons of hot air balloons that stay just above the ground and light up in the dark night. It was pretty cool!

Saturday morning we were up bright and early to run.
