Thanks to ALL of you who have commented with your support - you bloggers are awesome and I'm beyond thankful for you!!!!!
Let's start the race recap with talking about the day before the race, shall we?
Friday afternoon, we loaded the car and headed 2 hours south to northern Indianapolis.
Here was the official itinerary for the rest of the evening:
5:30 pick up packet
6:00 meet another blogger, Lisa, from Train with Lisa (click HERE to see her recap of the race) and her friends at the Olive Garden
8:00 drive the race route
8:45 check into the hotel
But . . .here's how it really played out:
5:15 pick up packet
5:45 pose for a picture by the Geist Half Pace Car outside of the packet pick up (apparently race officials were expecting very fast runners in this race and they needed a pace car??? Most of the races I do just has a cyclist out front leading the way - HA!)
Train with Lisa -the one we are suppose to be meeting at the Olive Garden in like 10 minutes . . . .huh?!?! Lisa is the daughter of "C's" friend "D". I get "C's" attention (for the record, she didn't recognize Lisa right away either . . it had been many years since they had seen each other).

9:30 After our course tour we went to Kroger to get some breakfast items and gum and headed to the hotel.
10:00 p.m. We got settled into our room. Quick pinning on the bib and blowing up the air mattress and it was off to bed (only 1 more wake up before this thing is DONE!)
