I’m doing it again! Half marathon #3 is May 5, 2012 in Indianapolis, Indiana!
I will be joining 35,000 other runners to do the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon (which is a half marathon). I LOVE that this race is the largest half marathon in the country! I get so energized by running with tons of other people, and this one is going to be the best I can get!
The coolest part of this race is that you get to run on the Indy 500 track – which is 2.5 miles. I think that will be an awesome experience.
Ideally, I’d like this to be my 4th half marathon. I really don’t want to wait until May to do another one but I haven’t found one I want to do yet. We’ll see!
This race sells out FAST! Last year it was sold out by December. I’m trying to recruit friends & fellow runners to do this race with me. I think it’ll be a blast! I’ve already registered. I put in my time at 2:45. That will improve my half marathon time by 18 minutes, which I think I can easily do.
If you would like to do this race with me or want help training for it, let me know! I will be a RRCA Certified Running Coach in January 2012.
