PR in the Indy Half Marathon!!

Today I ran the annual Indianapolis Mini Marathon (half marathon, 13.1 miles) and tonight I'm riding on some post race euphoria.

I completed the race with a personal record (PR) time of 1:40:38 for a half marathon. This works out to be just over 7.30 min/mile pace. I beat my old PR of 1:44:14 which I set almost 10 years ago in Sweden. Out of a field of 35,000 participants, I finished 1799nth overall and 262nd in my age group. Life in these aging legs yet!!

This evening I'm enjoying a few bottles of the very drinkable Celis Belgian White!!

This picture is from last year so the bib number is incorrect, (I was 26165 this year). I'll place a photo from today when they become available.
