I would run down the lane and into the night; Run so fast I swear my feet would fly; But the smell of the world came into my lungs; The sound of the gravel when my legs went numb; And my heart nearly burst right out of my chest...
TRIing to beat the heat!
Does anyone have experience running in the Indy Mini half that does some of its distance on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway? Is it possible for a runner to stop and kiss the bricks and have someone snap a photo of it?

Now why exactly do you want to kiss the bricks? I haven't heard of this before.

By tradition the winner of the race kisses the bricks that are the start / finish line
And....it turns out registration is closed for this year's Indy Mini.

To paraphrase an old poster: Today is the first day of the rest of your training. It doesn’t matter where you started or how far you’ve come. Today is the day. Your training didn’t start 6 weeks ago. Your training started the last time you hit the road. John “the Penguin” Bingham Life is not tried, it is merely survived if you're standing outside the fire
