Two Hours I Won't Be Getting Back

I joined 35,000 people this morning in Indianapolis to run the Mini-Marathon (click for action picture or see another one below).

That name is ridiculous because there is nothing mini about it. The Mini-Marathon is the country's largest half-marathon (13.1 miles) and the eighth largest running event. This event features a lap around the famous track at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The track is huge and I never thought it was going to end. It's a good thing I ate nothing but pasta for three days straight. I finished with a respectable time of 1:55:25. That was good enough to get me 6,005th place overall. I thought that was pretty good until I found out the winner was already back in Kenya.
