The 30th Indy 500 Festival Mini Marathon was Saturday….that’s 13.1 miles….and I’m pleased to say that I finished it for about the 10th time (I’ve lost track). No, I didn’t set any records; I’m firmly in the middle of the pack…but I was very happy to run and finish respectably, since I really hadn’t trained all that well. (Finishing about 18,000th in a starting field of 35,000!) New Orleans friend, Fred, ran with me for over 10 miles, and then hubby surprised me, joining me(slowing me) in a walk/jog to the finish. My final time isn’t important….but what is, is that hubby can now say that he’s participated in a Mini Marathon! Yeah him! Stay tuned for pics…
