What is your favorite song to listen to while working out? Tool – Parabola

Do you have any advice for future Flying Pig participants? The Flying Pig spectators are amazing, and if you put your name on your shirt they’ll cheer you on! Practical advice: test your race-day outfit and shoes on a long training run, and wear sunscreen.
