I was honored to chat with Sam Gardner for episode 78 of the podcast. Sam is a long time listener of the show and we connected through that. Sam is a super speedy runner from the south, with a marathon PR of 3:02.
Sam has been through so much in her 32 years.In 2005, while she was in college and training for her second half marathon, she was abducted, attacked and raped repeatedly. She was held captive in the woods for several hours, until dark, when her attacker did eventually let her go. Her story is a story of hope and overcoming.

My family loves the 500 Festival Mini Marathon so much and this year we can’t wait to participate in the Mini Mini! The Mini Mini is a timed fun run designed specifically for kids ages 5 – 12. It gives kids with an experience similar to the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon, that’s sized just for them. The race includes course entertainment, massive cheering sections, participant timing, and the coveted mini-mini medal (a smaller replica of the Indy Mini medal). All participants will start and finish at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s famed Yard of Bricks.
There are five different race distances will be offered, ranging from half a mile to 2.5 miles, so participants to select the race that best meets their age and ability.
The race is Sunday, September 17 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway- open to kids ages 5-12 and guardians can pre-register their mini runner for $15 at IndyMini.com. As I’ll Have Another listeners can use the code Another17 to save $3 on your mini-mini registration.
