Usually if the locals say the mayor is running again, they’re talking about politics. But if you’ve heard people use the phrase lately about Livingston Mayor Jason Medley, they really are talking about running, literally.
At age 35, Medley has decided it’s time he got himself physically fit, and he’s challenging residents of Livingston and all of Rockcastle County to do the same. He’ll participate in the 4th annual Livingston Leap Aug. 31, and he has issued the town’s first-ever Mayor’s Fitness Challenge. The names of those who finish ahead of him in the race will be put in a drawing for a cash prize of $50.
