3 Days until Flying Pig Marathon Weekend!
Flying Pig Marathon Greetings!

Welcome to Day 24 of our daily e-mail blasts to help you prepare for the 10th annual Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon events.

The Flying Pig Marathon is often a celebration in itself for many of its participants. Here's one example from Sagette Gilbert:

I just turn 50 this month. What a better way to celebrate then to run a marathon! I chose the Flying Pig Marathon because I've heard that it was a very fun marathon to run. My husband will also be running the marathon. This will be my third Marathon and my husband his sixth. This will be our first Flying Pig Marathon.We just had a race recently in the Florida Keys, and we had the pleasure to meet with one of the Flying Pig Strikers Jim Devanney. It was very exciting to be able to talk to someone who is running his tenth Flying pig marathon. We are looking forward to see him again at the race.

The Greening 'o the Pig

Are you driving into Cincinnati for the Pig? Check your local running clubs to see if anyone else in your group or area is coming in for the Pig as well. With the most recent jump in gasoline prices, it could save money, as well as fuel, if you can find someone to share the ride. There are all kinds of ways you can help to keep the Pig "green."

Cincinnati USA puts the fun in the run!
