I am not doing it but my wife will be running in the 1/2. It is her first race over 5 miles so I have been running with her on the weekends for her lsd jogs. I dont get to go since I will be at home parenting.

I am running the half. Second one, as I did the Evansville half in October. Should be a good event.

I have never been in a marathon before but am considering walking the Half marathon for the Flying Pig.  Anyone want to tell me about it.  I will be going to the first meeting with www.teamintraining.org/mail next week and will decide IF I am indeed going to go out of my comfort zone when I learn more about it.  Anyone want to tell me their stories about their first times......etc.?  Please

I'm considering it. The only reason I may NOT is because for some reason I want my first half mary to be in my half iron. It's just a silly goal I've set for myself.

I may do the 10K, though. Here is the link to the Web site.  They have a ton of information on there that might be useful.

I'm doing it.  If you see an old guy gasping and red-faced desperately trying to keep up with a thin young woman running a 3:45, that may be me and my training partner.

My wife is running it. She ran the full last year at 13 weeks pregnant. She's ridiculously awesome.

Up until today I've not ran more than 5 miles, most of the time hanging around the 3.5-4.5 mile range. Today I ran 7.

The question is...if I can do 7 today, and I probably could have gone further, can I be ready to do it?

Okay... so the training plan calls for me to run for 1:20 on the same day as the Flying Pig. I haven't ran 13.1 since the HIM last year but I should just suck it up and do it shouldn't I?

due to the fact i've had 3 sinus infections in 2010 alone, I'm dialing it back and doing the half. was going to try the full, but I don't think i'll be able to get my mileage up high enough to not risk an injury.

I'm running.  This'll be my first 1/2.  Previous season, I did just sprint tri's.

I hear there are hills...

I started a Marathon thread:  http://www.beginnertriathlete.com/discussion/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=202620

I'm proposing a BT gathering on Saturday evening. 

Anybody interested in a BT gathering Saturday evening?  I checked with the BlackFinn American Saloon (7th & Vine) and the menu looks promising for those racing as well as those supporting their favorite runner. 
http://www.blackfinncincy.com/menu_dinner.php

If we've got less than 20, they'll put us in the main dining room.  More than 20, they have a private room and we'd have a limited menu (7 items off the main menu).  Maybe 6:30 PM? 

Interested?  If so, how many would you be bringing (and how many are kids) and what items would you want to choose for the limited menu?  I'd need to get back to BlackFinn about April 24th if we want to do this. 

I'll work on contact information via PM as we get closer to the race.

I am in for the half and it will be my first.  My longest distance has been 10.5 treadmill and 7.5 outside running so I am hoping that the 13 will not be such a killer.  I am concerned about jeopardizing my first tri (cinci one world in July) though if I am totally wipred out.

But - at least I can say that I did it.  My goal... upright and in control of all my bodily functions if you know what I mean!!!Wink

I might be interested.  My 4/6 year olds are in the kid's fun run and kids' marathon earlier Saturday.  Not sure on timing.  Are we talking early evening?

Probably early evening (6 or 7 PM to start) depending on the needs of those attending.  One of the BT'ers is doing the Pump-n-Run.
