On Saturday I will run my second half-marathon, 13.1 miles through the streets of downtown Indianapolis, including a couple of miles on the Brickyard. (Presumably without cars.)
I've done my training and my tapering, but I feel unprepared. My half-marathon in Key West featured a field of about 700 people. Saturday's field? 34,999 runners -- and me.
I'm trying not to have a goal time in mind, because I know the start will be chaotic, and I'll be running a course for the first time, which is never good for my very methodical brain. My brain likes to know where it's going and when it's getting there, so my body is going to be working hard to overcome that.
Nevertheless, I have a new playlist for this occasion. It's sufficiently random that I hope it will suit my fluctuating moods for a couple of hours. Or less.
But who's counting?
