Meet Abigail White

Come meet local artist and avid runner Abigail White, who designed the beautiful artwork used on our awards and bibs!! She will be on site selling her prints.

ErniesConchHouseGrowing up on the island of Key West has been an inspiring journey. I’m a pastor’s daughter and one of nine children; my mother home schooled me, affording me plenty of free time to draw and paint, two of my favorite things. Key West has an artistic vibe: not only is it gorgeous and chromatic, but artists from around the world gather here and pool their knowledge. It’s easy to feed off that vibe and learn from those artists! 

One thing artists here love to depict are conch houses. Cute homes constructed by Bahama immigrants in Key West during the 19th century. They get their name from the conch shell, because people from the Bahamas were said to eat lots of conch meat. As far as I know, I’m the first to paint literal ‘conch houses’ with the conch shell as the exterior of house. Key West’s symbol is the conch shell so it’s appropriate! My art has gone on to include conchs transformed into other things, like boats and a sleigh. 

I still live in Key West and continue to draw inspiration from its beauty. I live with my husband, Terence, the Key West high school Cross Country coach (team name: The Conchs) and our two sons, Atticus and Archie.

HemingwayCenturyTour

Several years ago a couple of runners started the tradition of riding their bikes from Key Largo to Key West the day of the Hemingway 5K race. After the 100 mile ride, they would arrive in time to register for the race and run the 3.1 mile course. Afterwards they would drink a couple of beers at the  race party and hit Duval Street until 4 AM. The Tradition continues..
We will start the ride at 7:30 AM at our bike shop. Will have a fully SAG supported vehicle tailing the riders for the duration of the Century Ride. There will be 4 scheduled stops for food and hydration. Normally, we charge $200 for this fully supported bike ride. For the Hemingway event, we are charging $50 for the SAG support only. Our group is staying overnight in Key West and doing the paddle board race and 5K run. If you want a ride back with bikes to Key Largo the following morning, it’s an additional $75 fee. We are doing a bike rental special of $25 for a road bike for this event.

The Hemingway 5K Sunset Run is offering a special medal for  those who complete the Century Bike Ride, the paddle board race and 5K Run. This group will be the first ever to get these medals.
