We are narrowing down the remaining areas of concern, and hope that a few runners will be able to provide us the information we need to complete final results. If your posted finish time (available here) is incorrect, or if your posted time is correct and is between 26:06.7 and 27:01.2, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

We are planning a Fall race trip... come to Indianapolis for the Monumental Marathon with us! Why Indy for the Monumental? Look at these comments from Second Wind Members who ran the race in 2012:"I have run the Indy Monumental Half Marathon the last two years and it is one of my favorite races.Perfect weather and a flat and fast course have helped me PR there twice. The whole weekend is easy—thereis plenty of cheap parking near the expo and race start, packet pick-up is a breeze, corrals and pace teamsensure a good race experience, there is plenty of water and Gatorade on the course and tons of food at thefinish. Plus this year, they opened up the YMCA to allow finishers to shower if needed. Meeting up with theSWRC members both before and after the race made for a memorable experience—it was so exciting to hearabout everyone’s race experience. I’m looking forward to doing the full marathon there next year!"—Julia Williams"The Hyatt and the Westin are two downtown hotels that are virtually at the race start/finish line. Notonly that, but they are literally across the street from the race expo, public parking, and the places whereour group was meeting up. I managed to also get a late pass to the fitness center within the hotel, whereI was able to shower and change after the race. A number of us had coordinated to meet at the Buca diBeppo restaurant downtown to do some nigh- before carb-loading. The meal was family style and the portionsplentiful. During dinner we discussed our goals and race strategies. I found the race course flat andI settled into my goal pace without making too many adjustments. The event was well-supported and aidwas available every two to three miles. Everything held together for me to the end where I finished with aPR and a Boston qualifying time! After the race we had all planned to meet up at the Rock Bottom Breweryjust around the corner from Buca di Beppo. The merriment at the Brewery capped off a great race weekendwhere I think everyone had a good race experience to pass along."—John NorthAll Second Wind members are encouraged to register for one of the great events at the Indy Monumental marathon this year. The club will be providing more information regarding plans for members to meet up before and after the race, so stay tuned!Race information and registration links can be found at the Monumental website:Questions can be directed to Nick Paulson at email@example.com
