Looking down from the Westin Hotel, runners heading to
starting line to the left side of photo. Start is at 8 am
for both Full and Half (did half because had to be in Bloomington by car by noon). It was an unusually nice mid-
fifties F degrees at the start and by 10 am in the low 60s F. The hotel is convenient as it was only 2 blocks from
the start as well as the finish line.
At the Starting Line
For this 2nd annual Monumental, around 6,000 participated
We're off and here's my supporting wife and daughter (we drove
straight from the Finish Line to Bloomington- an hour's drive-
to attend the Indiana Hoosiers vs. Wisconsin Badgers football game at Indiana University where she is a freshman)

My own stationary shot, then back, off and running!
The start and finish is close to the state capitol (on the left)
Passing the Westin where we lodged
The Hyatt is close to the Westin; it's a side street along the running course.
Another pedestrian overpass (especially useful for harsh winter weather)
Home of the Indinapolis Colts!
Old train station
Under an overpass
That's star Peyton Manning, No. 18, on the wall
Yes, I am a Colts/Manning fan
Hint of Christmas around the corner
Running under Madison Avenue
We return towards the stadium on a loop along Capitol, McCarty, South and Delaware
Keep on Running
