Mini Marthon '08

Saturday was the Indianapolis Mini Marathon, the annual 13.1 miles of fun. I was very focused on a time of 1:45:00 and had done that time in training. I finished with a time of 1:49:22, which was a personal best, but slightly disappointing considering my goal. A time of 1:45 translates into about 8 minutes per mile. I was averaging 7:50 a mile for the first 5 miles and 8:06 for the first 10 miles, but then I slowed down to a 9:08 for the last 5K. After mile 9, the bright sun came out and it got very warm. The weather had been great up until then. It was still a fun event and it is great to relax at the Taylor tent in Military Park with friends. Joy did the 5K and had her best time in that race (34:20). Andrew had his best mini and was about 1:33. To look up more results, click here.
