Name: Pam Chemelewski
City/Town: Fishers, Indiana
First year of #IndyMini: 2015
Q: What is your favorite #IndyMini memory?
Being fortunate enough to be part of the team who saved a fellow runner’s life!
Q: Who or what motivates you the most during training?
Whatever goal I have set is what motivates me the most during training. Whether it be going a longer distance, aiming for a PR or running races back to back, without a goal I feel as if I have no path. For me, setting a goal is equivalent to crushing that same goal in due time!
Q: What advice do you have for people considering running the #IndyMini for the first time?
First time #IndyMini participants need to take it all in! Enjoy the entire race. Get to the start line early to take in the building excitement. Take time as you walk or run along to meet a few of the participants around you. Thank all the safety personnel you see on the route. Kiss the bricks on the Speedway. Be proud of yourself for that hard earned medal you receive at the finish line. And, most importantly, sign up for next year’s race!
Q: What’s your favorite song to listen to when running?
Nearly anything by Flo Rida or Pitbull!
Q: If you were stranded on an island (and had everything necessary to survive), which three items would you also like to have with you?
My camera, a good book and, of course, my running shoes!!!
