#104 Twilight Town Trek

I participated in a fun race August 21 - the Twilight Town Trek - in Indianapolis. Krista and Julie were partners, and I partnered up with Jen from work. You can work together as groups so we stuck together the entire race. We had to solve 13 clues and had to run all over town to take pictures of things. You could use only your own feet or the bus; no bikes, cars, cabs, roller skates, skateboards, etc. Jen estimated we ran around 4 miles. You could also phone a friend or use your iPhone. The race started at 6:30 p.m. at Scotty's Brewhouse.

Jen and I were the Michael Scott Paper Company, Inc. and finished with an actual time of 1:48:30. Our final time was 2:08:30 due to misreading one of the clues. In our defense, it was in Spanish. We did translate part of it correctly! We heard that most teams got this one wrong. I think we were the fifth team to come in (Julie and Krista were right in front of us) and were pleased that we beat a lot of the guy teams. Girl Power!! Our final place was 13 out of 55 teams. Not too shabby.

We had to take a picture of five people (non racers) spelling out the word TREKS YMCA style. These folks were good sports.

This was a sculpture at the Indiana Statehouse. Jen is shaking the tiny hand of someone (I can't remember who).

This is me lying on the Johnson County artwork at the Indiana State Museum.
