Sam and I travelled to Indianapolis this afternoon. He is running in the Geist Half Marathon tomorrow (his fifth of 2009) and I am wogging the 5K. We drove for possibly five hours, had an excellent dinner, and are now holed up in an ancient Holiday Inn until the race tomorrow, after which we shall clean up and drive home.
So the question remains, "Why do this?" Again, my answer is, "Why not?" I see a new part of this country, I spend time with my adult son, I eat in new places, I meet new woggers, I once again attempt to kick-start a jogging training plan, and I potentially experience new adventures. All in all, not a bad way to start a weekend.
