Harpeth Hills Flying Monkey Marathon, Nashville
Hmm, that name sounds familiar doesn’t it? If you’re a Cincinnatian, you might have to get past the race literature, in which they try to counter the big, modern “event” type marathons and has a name that at least seems to take a shot at our own Flying Pig. A recurring phrase you will read about this race is a boast that it’s a “non-flat, non-fast” course. That’s fine and all, but we must point out that you’ll never hear the words “flat and fast” in another Flying marathon’s literature. Still and all, it’s though a park, it sounds challenging and yes, an “old school” smaller marathon can indeed be refreshing.
I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
Wonder why they are so defensive?

Alas, that’s not the case. Check out the comments field above — there’s actually a really cool story behind what sounds like a really cool race.
Is it correct to say "I googled it on wolfram alpha?"
The tangents are moot.
