Isn't the Pig about 2 weeks away? And no thread yet?<br><br>
What's wrong with you folks? Don't you know that this is the best marathon in the land??

I was borderline on where to post. Yes, its a "The Race" thread.<br><br>
Yet this race is just so well done that its fit for the entire PRT.

My every post is a Flying Pig thread with this avatar.<br><br>
And....I would beg to differ with your belief that the Pig is the best marathon in the land.<br><br>
But I can't seem to muster an arguement. <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif"><br><br>
I don't know if it's the best, but for it's size, it's pretty darn good.<br><br>
And forgive me for not knowing this but....are you running it, Roots?

I have a weird feeling that Dan will also be there. (edit: oops! posted at the same time)<br><br>
But duckgeek will not.

If we end up living in NC this summer and I get my taste of running in the hills and mountains there, then The Pig is tops on my list for 2008!

The hills in the pig are way overrated. If you train on some of the NC hills, the pig will seem pretty tame. Just one bump in the middle.

I dunno yet. A couple friends are running and it would be fun. Having run there in '05 and '06, I wanna go again.<br><br>
Did I mention I love this race?

I've wanted to run this race every year since it's started... (The pigs did it for me. I love pigs.) but it's all the way in Cincinatti, and I'm here in GA, and travel is expensive/awkward. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif">

I've run the full once and the relay once. I love this race. It's my absolute favorite.

srlopez- you are right. This is a topic for "The Race." Can we move the thread?<br><br>
A couple running buds are going. I'm tempted. Going to keep training on and keep options open. The price is already maxed out, so I will wait until the expo to register.<br><br>
So where's the gathering??

I am going to attempt to move this thread now. It'll be my first time.<br><br>
Let's see how this goes...<br><br>

I'll shall be there as well. I'm actually considering shooting for a 3:45. <img alt="icon_cyclops_ani.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_cyclops_ani.gif"> My last long run was exceptional. If I can keep my weight down, I think I'll have a shot at it. I may have to withdraw from the Clydesdale division, though. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

Thanks!<br><br>
I am settling down a bit and getting used to it. Was actually doing some yard work today after work. It still needs a lot of work inside and I'm not even close to all the way moved in yet, but I'm a lot more comfortable.

I would like to run the Pig, yet I have no hotel reserved yet. Can I still get one?<br><br>
I'm coming down with a group, but I am the only one flying solo.<br><br>
Anyone have an extra room/bed to share, or ideas for cheap lodging, downtown or otherwise?
