Here I am again running a marathon. Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon with Team In Training. I have been a bit worried because it has been quite warm here. But even though it did get nearly 80 there was a fairly consistent cooling breeze most of the time. It got very hot between mile 20 and 23 but then the breeze was back and I survived. I was much faster than in Bunbury, but still much slower than I want to be. I know I need to shed some pounds and increase my training. I have been very lazy for the last few months. I finished in 6 hours and 20 minutes. I certainly need to keep my time under 6 hours, regardless of the outside temperature. The course was nice, with quite a few hills but they were all small. Nothing seriously difficult.
The folks from the Team In Training Flex Team were just awesome. I enjoyed their company so much. It was a grand time in every way.
And here I am posing next to the Flying Pig with my heavy medal!
