The Indianapolis Mini Marathon

I know everyone wants stories and pictures of Hawaii, but I only have a couple of minutes so I'll fill you in on the race. This past Saturday we lined up for a 13.1 run. Crazy as it may seem, I had so much fun! Autumn & I cruised together running and walking for the first ten miles. That got us past innumerable garage bands, a couple groups of bag pipers and cheerleaders, and around the world famous Indianapolis 500 Race Track. That part is always my favorite. At the 10 mile mark we split up and I fairly sprinted the last 3 miles. I felt really good and my foot wasn't bothering me at all (praise the Lord!). We wrapped up the day with dinner at The Cheesecake Factory, I wasn't sore at all the next day (although very tired), & I'm all pumped for next year! Anybody want to do it with me???
Here are my stats:

Overall Place: 18967 out of 29213
Division Place: 1817 out of 2831 (Ages 25-29)
Gender Place: 8073 out of 15245
Time: 2:39:41 (you can subtract about 8 minutes for bathroom breaks, believe it or not!)
Pace: 12:12
5 Mile Split: 1:00:48
10 Mile Split: 2:08:07
Last 5k: 31:34
