    Well, I've signed up for my first marathon at Flying Pig, Cincinatti, Ohio.

     

    Anybody else from RA going to be there?

    2014 Marathons: 05/04 Flying Pig - 09/20 Air Force - 11/01 Indianapolis Monumental

      I won't be there for 2014, but this year it was my first ever marathon.  Was a really great event for me.

       

      Kind of crazy that I'm also prepping for my first 5k of the year tomorrow and my goal is a 21:30 as well.

       

      Good luck!

        It's on my "bucket list" of races, for reasons I can't put my finger on.

         

        But not this year.

              I hear it is one of the better mid-western races. Plus, got to love a race shirt with a winged pig on it. Smile

                I did it last spring. It was my 2nd 26.2 I had a blast. Great support, nice route. Have fun.

                  ONe of my favorites, very well-organized, great support, big expo, lots of schwag, and three of my fastest races were at pig. Once you get up that hill at mile 8 it's all down and fast.

                  I look my best blurry!

                    I won't be there but ran the half in 2012 and loved the whole event! It was a surprisingly beautiful course.  I ran the half and then ran back the full course to run a friend in.  It was so much fun!  Skip theSkyline chili though!  BLECK!  Sorry Cincinnati!  I prefer a Primanti's sandwich!  I'll be doing the Pittsburgh Marathon relay that day!

                      I ran it so I could get the medal with the pig butt on the back. Seriously.

                        That is a nice medal.  I pretend I'm not influenced by the swag, but...

                        Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.
