The Greening 'o the Pig

Heat sheets, space blankets, whatever you call them, don't throw yours away after the Pig! After a gentle sponge bath with soapy water, let your heat sheet dry thoroughly, then save it for your next race! It'll keep you warm while you're waiting for the start. Or, keep it in your car for emergencies. Did you know that if you take four heat sheets and tape them over your interior car windows, you can generate temperatures of over 70 degrees with just a single candle? Just another way to re-use our Pig resources.

Cincinnati USA puts the fun in the run!
