Cold Start, Hot Finish Mini-Marathon

Ran the Indianapolis Half-Marathon on Saturday for the first time.  It was in the low 30's at the start but turned out to be a beautiful fall day.  Shed the layers at mile 3 and tried to stay on pace with unknown terrain ahead.  I ran 1:45 in May at the 500 festival Mini but thought I could beat that today.  Ended with a PR at 1:39:59.  Beats my 2002 time of 1:41:24 on a flat 500 Festival course.  This course was not flat and the last 3 miles - rolling hills.  I highly recommend the course.  The volunteers were great and out in full force.
