The Indy 500

This weekend, I'm going down to Indianapolis to join 400,000 of my closest friends at the Indy 500. 33 open-wheel race cars will line up and take the green flag for an all-out battle for 50 miles.

Hey, it can't all be about training, right? :) Taking a break for some suds and buds, cars and stars.

But wait! There's a 1/2 marathon!

35,000 people ran the course through parts of the city, then ended with a lap around the famous 2 1/2 mile Indianapolis Motor Speedway. How cool is that! If it were closer to the race I'd do it for sure... maybe another year.

Enjoy the Memorial Day long-weekend! :) Back to training on Tuesday!

Next time! :)

Race was great, weather was great. But I didn't see a fruit or vegetable in 3 days and used Miller Lite (ewww) as my main source of hydration... so time to get back on the wagon!
