State #45, September 1, 2013: Indiana, Jasper

Run #46 (DC and 45 states), Sunday, September 1, 7:30 a.m.

It's 7 a.m. at the Heartland Half Marathon and 5K in Jasper, Indiana.

After a prayer, the National Anthem was played beautifully on a trumpet.(Reminded me of Tommy Loy's trumpet Anthem at 24 Thanksgiving Dallas Cowboy games)

Then a start of "ready, get set, go," and we are off.

About a mile and a half on the road...

Then another mile and a half on a trail.

26th overall out of about 100 runners.
2nd in "60 and over" age group

2nd Place Trophy Presentation

Jasper has a beautiful courthouse with a "Back to the Future" clock tower.

Seems like a great place to live...
