Almost 1300 Miles to go 13.1 or the 500 Rap

(An Indianapolis Mini Marathon Recap)
The three of us left Energizer Bunny's place mostly on time.
Sure we have lots of luggage! So what, is that a crime?
We stopped at a Subway and Silly Rabbit had a feeling of déjà vu…
Happy, Happy, Pain, Pain started here the first time she trained for Moo!
Headed off to our hotel to get some needed rest.
GPS says we are on the road to nowhere, surely you jest?!
Next morning two of the crew made the most of the pancake maker!
While Silly Rabbit did 
FitDeck cards; any takers?
Back in the car Rabbittear learned Team Rabbit are singing fools
Radio volume at a certain level - that's one of the rules!
Silly Rabbit will tell you the weather whether you want to know or not.
Energizer Bunny and P-Diddy say, “Oh Lord, make it STOP!!”
The Rabbit girls had both acquired swollen fingers.
P-Diddy said, "Use this ice or the pain is gonna linger!"
But they didn't listen and hopped on their merry way…
And continued to complain for the rest of the day!
At the expo Silly Rabbit couldn't wait to see the Newton man!
She got her new shoes, a FREE hat, and then off she ran!!
What's this? A Rabbit head that contains PEZ candy!
Thanks P-Diddy, the Rabbits think it is dandy!!
The rabbits went to bed and had an early night.
So the 35,000 runners wouldn't be a fright!
Race morning on our head we wore boppers sporting checkered flags!
The race photographer got our pic as we dropped off our bags!!
We dropped Rabbittear off in her corral – it was “V”.
So she wouldn't be late for her wave, you see!
Finally the announcer said, “Runners please listen:”
Next thing we heard was, "Ladies and gentlemen start your engines!"
Then the Indy Mini Marathon race was underway!
Team Rabbit and the Rabbittear were going to run this glorious day!
P-Diddy tried to keep up with all the entertainment groups.
But there were just too many to count; oops!!
The "Wizard of Oz" cheer station was all the rave.
But sadly it's not Energizer Bunny's fave!
Silly Rabbit met a dude whose wife's name was Bunny.
“Is your name Rabbit?” he asked. Isn't that funny?
Along the course we saw a lot of PITAREA banners?
But no pitas were served - just water with nice manners!
Halfway through the race we did a loop on the Brickyard track!
Must 
kiss the bricks for good luck before we go back!
One of the PIT AREA stops had a “Star Wars” theme.
A sign with "
May the Fourth Be with You" could be seen!
Team Rabbit and the Rabbittear finished along a rowdy final mile.
It was time to have some fun and celebrate our victory with a smile!
At the race party Priscilla got called out by a guy named Elvis!
We were sure glad that he didn't gyrate his pelvis!!
Remember the song "Lady Willpower" by Gary Puckett and the Union Gap?
Well there's an Indy car driver named 
Will Power - how ‘bout that?
The group was dragged to the NCAA Hall of Champions Museum.
There were pictures, stories, and interactives; you had to see 'em!!!
For restaurants and directions Andy and Jeff were our excellent hosts!
Since 24 Indy Mini Marathons between them they boast!!
Then we met a man who is 75 years old!
And he's done 35 Indy Mini Marathons as he told!!!
There was Diet Coke, Starbucks, and gluten galore!
That's how we celebrated even though we were sore!
We acquired a fan in our new friend named Mark.
He received a KICK @$$ Team Rabbit water bottle on a lark!
The 500 Festival runs in Indianapolis throughout the month of May.
Team Rabbit and the Rabbittear were glad we came to play!
The One America Mini is the largest half in the nation.
We were very impressed with the amount of organization!
