Promising progress toward recovering fintess levels!
Bandit racing of Indy half in the rain. Game time decision to make the drive up to the City from Columbus this morning. There was supposed to be an I-65 hard closure starting Friday night, but, it got delayed due to the rainy weather.
Made it to the start line in time to almost get in position within corrals to not be slowed down by the crowd, but, not quite. Mile 1 was 6:40, and required a bit of effort to weave in and out of the crowd. Actually got settled pretty well in to 6:15-6:25 pace for most of the splits. Encouraging step forward in fitnedss and progress. In my rush, I forgot to wear the watch, and the phone with Strava record app. didn't work out. It apparently stopped recording somewhere around the Racecar track. I got in another high five at the racetrack finish line from Frank Shorter :)
Judging by the folks I finished around, and the percieved effort, a 1:25 was pretty close to accurate for actual finishing time. A long way to go, but, progress to be certain. Would have been nice to see splits in the end - I felt like it was a pretty good effort. Saw some familiar faces, surprisingly. Lisa S., Kevin and Gary, and even Perez. In all that crowd, its funny taht I saw that many ppl. that I knew.
