I just realized I never posted any pictures from the Indy 500 last weekend. It was so much fun. We woke up early and headed to the track on Sunday. It’s always quite the adventure to load up our cars, find the best route to the track and then sit in traffic for hours while we wait to get into the infield to park.
This year, the track made a smart move. They allowed you to pre-purchase infield parking passes! This is huge because we would normally wake up at about 4am to get in line at the track, but this year I was prepared and bought a parking pass in advance. This allowed us to sleep in until about 7!! What a great change. We left my house at 7:30 and we were in the track by 8:30. SO MUCH BETTER. Great move Indianapolis Motor Speedway!
One of the fly overs before the race started
Every year we have to worry about the heat. We usually have to load up on sun screen and find the best shady spot to tailgate under all day. This year was different. It was about 65 degrees and cloudy. It even rained a bit while we were leaving. It was unusual to wear long sleeves at the track, but it felt more like tailgating and I kinda liked it!
Ryan and I right before the race started.
The day was filled with friends, loud cars, adult beverages and some beersbee. Beersbee is the most fun tailgating game ever and it gets very competitive…or maybe that’s just our group haha. I played against the boys a couple times, but unfortunately they just barely beat me every time. They had some talent!
A game of beersbee in action. It’s so much fun!
I posted a video of the cars in action on my Facebook Page if you’re interested. It gets so loud when they race around you but it’s so fun because you’re in the middle of it all. If the noise stops, you know there was a crash or something to hold up the cars. Other than the noise, you really don’t know what’s going on in the race unless you’re in the stands. I’m there for the atmosphere..not really the racing!
Another successful year at the Indy 500 🙂
This week I’ve been busy killing it in the gym. I’m now working out with my boyfriend and he’s really pushing me. I’ve been so sore this week and LOVING IT!
Look..I’m still rocking my hot pink Under Armour shoes. I can’t get enough of them!
As for this weekend, I’ll be headed to the greatest city in the world, Chicago! We are going there for a wedding but if the weather allows us, we may try to stop at the Indiana Dunes on the way to do some hill sprints and a sand workout!
