Blogging live from the Indy500 mini-marathon...
I've trained hard for this race. I've been tapering for the past 6 months or so and carb-loading for at least as long.
I just finished the 5K in near (personal) record time. I must admit I walked about half of it--which helped my time--my walking pace is a good deal faster than my running pace.
The best part of the whole deal is all the free stuff you get at the end: apples, bananas, Snickers, subway meal, potato chips, cookies... just enough to undo any health benefits I may have accrued from training and running(/walking) this thing.
The great thing about going out to big public events like this is that I get to see and meet many of my readers and supporters. I've run into at least 4! And who knows how many others of you are out here, to shy or embarrassed to introduce yourself to me.
Congratulations to all who raced and finished!
