Indianapolis Monumental Marathon was Monumental!

Buzz this
Fred & I completed another marathon yesterday - the Monumental Marathon in Indianapolis. Our first marathon was in May 2008 - the Cleveland Rock n Roll Marathon. We have completed 5 more since then, and several half marathons since then. We primarily walk, but incorporate some running in. They are so much fun! We caught the bug when we saw the medals of our friend Nancy, who is an elite runner. We are all in the same small group at church. We went to her home for a meeting, saw all of her medals, and were intrigued! It was then that we found out you could walk them (most have time limits that can accommodate walkers). We enjoy them for so many reasons - the health aspect, the opportunity to see lots of different cities, the camaraderie, and the overall atmosphere!

We don't have any more marathons on the calendar yet, but we'll be adding one (or more!) soon! We definitely want to do the Pittsburgh Marathon on May 2, 2010. But we hope to do several more before then! Another possibility is the Rock n Roll Arizona Marathon in the Metro Phoenix area in January. There is an appeal to an Arizona marathon in January to a Michigander! I'll keep you posted on our progress!
