I just found out some awesome news. I am running the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini Marathon in Indianapolis on Saturday, May 2nd. This is the largest half marathon in the country with over 35,000 runners.
ok… ok…. the awesome news…. I got Wave 1, Corral C placement. That means I am starting toward the front, and Corral C out A-Z is not too shabby.
This will go well toward my having to get to Cincinnati soon after the race to prepare for the Cincinnati Flying Pig Half Marathon the following day!
