Meet Kristy Denton, Executive Director, and Cypress Grove resident, Larry Hoefling.
Kristy and Larry first connected over their love for running. In fact, their first half marathon was the exact same one, years apart! Larry ran his first Kentucky Derby Half Marathon at the age of 36 in an hour and 51 minutes. Kristy did the same race but in 2008 in three hours and 42 minutes. Larry asks Kristy most mornings if she ran to work that day. Then he reminisces about running five to eight miles every morning at the firehouse where he was a firefighter for 27 years. He says he loved the “runner’s high” that he got from it and that there is nothing quite like it.
