Two weeks!

I am two weeks away from leaving for Indianapolis and the Indy Mini.  I honestly don’t know if I’ll be ready.  My training has been a little haphazard and I had almost two full weeks when I couldn’t run because of bronchitis.  I guess I’ll know on May 4!  My main reason for going to Indianapolis, however, is to meet some tumblrfolk and hopefully run a half marathon rather than going to run a half marathon and hopefully meet some tumblrfolk.  No matter what I do there, if I finish it will be a PR, and while I will try my best, I’m not going to get stressed out about it.  That said, my training runs have been pretty good even if they have been on treadmills.  I did 5 miles today in 41:30 and felt like I could have gone longer.  Hopefully, I’ll feel like that tomorrow when I have six scheduled.  I probably should get some miles in outside too.  So much snow though!

And completely unrelated to running or the marathon, I totally stole this picture from Joe who took it today at Lake of the Isles.  Yeah, we have another big snowstorm underway, but I love how bucolic the lake looks here.  Hard to believe it’s just a few blocks from downtown.
