Flying Pig Marathon


My sister has been here all week, and we have been hanging out and catching up, so I have been a little distant from the blogging world. I plan to catch up tomorrow after she leaves. But I wanted to tell you all something crazy.... I am planning on running the Flying Pig Marathon in Cincinnati on Sunday. I know I just ran Kentucky derby marathon on Saturday, but I am an addict... hence two marathons 8 days apart. I only live an hour from there, so it makes it hard to not want to run it because of the convenience. So I talked my hubby into making it a little family trip. Cincinnati has a great Aquarium park, so we will take the girls after the race on Sunday. Plus, I told the hubby he could golf Saturday morning if he would let me run on Sunday. We are always making some kind of a deal with each other. I get what I want and he gets what he wants... we are both happy... isn't that all that matters?

I think "Far and Strong" is a definite understatement. Way to go!

Hey you don't know me, but I live in Vernal and I am friends with Emily Arnold. She has told me all about you, and you sound way cool. I am a marathon runner too. Too bad you moved when I came to Vernal, we could have trained together. Anyway, if you would like to visit my running blog, feel free... rampton.fastrunningblog.com

Wow - two in eight days! It reminds me of what a friend posted on my Facebook page after I ran 3 half-marathons earlier this month in 13 days - "Crazytown: Population 1".

Seriously, very cool. Good luck and I look forward to the posting. We lived in Cincy for several years and I'd love to run their full sometime. Mark

Oz Runner said...

are you trying to become a marathon maniac, or join the 50 states club yet?
good luck on the flying pig!

Becca said...

Yes you're crazy. Crazy cool. I'm impressed!

Rookie on the Run said...

Considering the whole Swine Flu thing going on, the name of that Marathon is very appropriate.

You are amazing!! Heck, if you can do it... the more power to you!

Don't you love those little win-win trade-offs? ;D

Kim said...

AWESOME!! I'll be thinking of you while I'm running the Lincoln marathon Sunday. Good Luck and have a great time.

Becca Rampton said...

I love reading your blog. I can't believe that you did 2 marathons, 8days a part, hello!
Follow my running blog, I rarely update the blogspot blog. You should join fastrunningblog.com, I get so much support and good advice from everyone.

I love your tatoo, so cool.

RunnerMom said...

Wow, wow, wow! When are you going to start tackling ultras?

Have you looked into the Marathon Maniacs? I think you might be one. They have a website/webpage with their requirements. I think back to back marathons qualifies!
