Mini Marathon at Max Distance

Matt Lohsi ’84 and his family

500 Festival Mini-marathon = 13.2 miles.  Necessary essentials = water.

Mini-marathon in Afghanistan = 13.2 miles.  Necessary essentials = water, plus gun, plus extra ammo…just in case.

Distance from Indianapolis, IN to Afghanistan  = Approximately 8,000 miles.

Running “together”as a family – priceless.

Matt Lohsi ’84 is deployed to Afghanistan.  He’ll be running in a mini-marathon on May 10th.  That mini is a part of a partnership with the 500 Festival Mini held this past weekend.  His lovely bride Colleen and daughter Karyn Joel ran in the 500 Festival Mini for him.

It’s a neat story – find it here.
