Indy Marathon


There is another big race in the State of Indiana this month, the Sunburst Marathon.

Something that is a big part of my life, but I don't talk too much about, is physical activity. I think it is an important part of spirituality. So multiple times a week I play soccer with the teams, bike to work, lift, or run. I find the communal physical activities (soccer, biking, softball) to be really rewarding because it draws me alongside other people.

The more personal exercises are rewarding as well but much more difficult. Running for me has been highly personal since college and an activity I enjoy. Right now, as much as aI love running and races, I don't think I could do a marathon. Give me some 5Ks and I'm there but 26.2 miles sounds daunting.

Which is why I have mad props for people who run marathons. So I'm giving it up to my brother in law, Eric, who is running the Indianapolis Marathon this weekend.

You thought the State of Indiana possessed the city of South Bend. Yes, that is right for now. But after this week it will belong to Eric Weiss because he is going to "own" that Marathon. Get it done bro!

Thanks Mike,
You're right, I am going to own Indiana! It should be interesting to see how it goes. Check the blog after tomorrow to see.
