Second Sunday Attracts Enthusiastic Crowd

Jun 11, 2012

LEXINGTON, Ky. - Thousands of Kentuckians packed the Blue Grass Airport Runway yesterday for the city’s third Second Sunday – and event that allowed visitors to bike, learn martial arts and yoga, and even enjoy chair massages while planes took off on the adjacent runway.

Councilman Jay McChord is the man behind Second Sunday.

"I think what's funny to watch is how much people exercise when they're having fun. It's kind of like a day at Disneyland. You go and go and you don't even know you were exercising like crazy," McChord said. 

McChord has said he wants the city to show Mens Health magazine, which ranked Lexington as the country’s most sedentary city last year, that Lexingtonians are eager to get fit.
