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.
– 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!
