Cincinnati Flying Pig Half Marathon- May 3, 2009

Well, it has been a while since we have ran a marathon, however we managed to pull ourselves out of bed early for this year’s Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon!  We have done this one every year for the past 5 or 6 years!  This year they were forecasting 70% chance of rain so I wasn’t really looking forward to 13.1 miles of sogginess.  Well, we lucked out!  Just a few drops along the way and actually it turned out to be some of the best running weather we have had in a while!

I will have to say though that the hills really got me this year!  I think they may have changed the course or I just forgot how tough this one is!  It seemed as though every corner we turned there was another hill!   I still totally enjoy this marathon and will continue to run this each year.

Memories

– Having my daughter in-law run this year with us!  I am so glad that someone in our family is also interested in running!  Looking forward to running many more with he just need to get my sons running!

– The bridges- I really love these as they keep the scenery very interesting!

– Ault Park- very beautiful, serene, hilly but beautiful!
