12 May Indy Mini 2012
Though not my (James) proudest running moment, the race was bitter sweet. Bitter in that I ran nearly 20 minutes slower than I did two years ago and sweet because finishing a half marathon is a fete in and of itself. With 30,000+ runners the race is full of excitement at every stretch of the race—specially being able to run around the speedway. The first 10 miles were pretty solid at a consistent pace of 8:30/mile. My body shut down at mile 10 to leave me with my mind to drag my body the last 5K. I ended up finishing in 2 hours 11 seconds. After the race we hopped in the car and drove to Wisconsin for my 10 year high school reunion. Yes, I feel old. But at the same time, feel like I still haven’t grown up.

In Corall “G”. It took 5 min. and 25 sec. to get to the start line.
My amazing running buddy, John Ditmer. Couldn’t have done it without him. Seriously.
