Well, I ran 209.7 the hard way. I went out in a 60 or 61 second 400m, and then finished with a 69 second 400m. I felt like I had run my wheels off. A 60 second 400m shouldn't be that hard, but it is just hard going back down to such a short distance when Coach Dennis is having me work-out with the 5k and 10kers. I could run a 2:09 as a college freshman....indoors....as a season opener. However, I had a lot of fun, and it was a beautiful night to run; about 60 degrees with no wind. I was especially happy to have some friend’s cheering: Elizabeth’s boyfriend Dan, and her sister, Annie. They drove 10 hours to watch the race, and then turned about and drove 10 hours home today. I also got to race with a couple Run Pro Camp attendees: Mary Kate Quiett and Devotia Moore, who are both rocking the 800m this season as first-year professional runners. Travis Berkstrand from the University of Minnesota and Mike Hutton from St. Thomas University ran the men’s 800m. Mike set a new PR, and unfortunately, Travis had to stop after running an awesome first 600m because someone stepped on spike and it came off. Boo.This morning, Elizabeth, Annie, Dan, and I got breakfast at a cute restaurant, Creation Café, which overlooks the canal in downtown Indianapolis. Afterwards we ran, napped, and then got food and had a picnic while listening to a live jazz band on the canal. It was a beautiful evening, and so fun to explore a new city with a friend.
