    Who's doing what? I'm planning on Indy half, Knobstone Mini, Monumental full, Tecumseh, and maybe HUFF.

        I will be doing Monumental full and maybe Tecumseh.

          Tecumseh really is fun.  I still haven't done a full on the road and I still haven't really fully committed to the Monumental, so I'm thinking of just doing it as a long training run. The Knobstone Mini is probably my favorite race of all though.  The last couple years it has hit the foliage just perfectly, though I think it might be a week or so late this year.

            Anyone with experience approaching the Indy Marathon from the south?  Traffic was very bad last year coming from the north...wondering if I should take a back route.

                Off 465 take Pendelton Pike East to Franklin or Post heading North. Post takes you to the East side of parking. Franklin connects you to parking via Lawrence Park. Either is better than 56th.

                  Thanks--last year I was a mile or two away 45 minutes before the start and ended up starting about 10 minutes after the gun I think.  Goal times for tomorrow?  I haven't done a road race recently and haven't done any track work to really know where I stand.  As for just hopes, I think I'm going to see if I can hit 7:15-7:20 and just hang on.  I really want to get that 1:35, but I probably haven't quite put in the work unless it is a perfect day.  That said, temp looks good and wind could be a problem.

                     3:09:59. I am throwing caution to the wind.

                    .  Goal times for tomorrow?

                      Well, I'll keep an eye out for you.  We're both shooting for 7:15 it sounds like...I'm just going half as far.

                        I decided to only do the half at Monumental. I just don't have the mileage to do the full, but I can still string some workouts together and have a reasonable shot at a hm pr.

                            C-R, Good thing you signed up for Boston when you did.  I can't believe it's already sold out!  Nice job on Indy!
