    Talk about any events people are training for or signing up for, or discuss questions and/or ideas about what kind of workouts someone might like to do or try.

    I've been preparing to do the half marathon event at the Flying Pig Marathon in Cincinnati on May 3rd. Colloquially, one would say I am doing the Half Pig. I'm not hardcore or even very good, but I ran cross country and track in high school and can run above average pace at long distance if I'm a bit prepared.

    I've slacked since high school, but now that I'm out of college and have more time, I'm getting back into it and would like to aim to be mentally and physically ready for the Full Pig next year.

    Man, this is the thread that's gonna make me feel horrible about myself, huh? :p

    I'm a bit of a runner, I don't have too much endurance but I think it's enough for me to get along if I ever needed it.

    I did about that same exact distance today, actually. Winding down from a 17-mile (over 27k) run earlier this week and getting ready for the Pig on Sunday.

    I'm not that fast, but I like to think that I'm alright.
    My school did half mile times, where I got a 2:27, but I could still do better

    I'm more of a sprinter, clocking in a 11.1 100m time and a 22.8 200m time last year. However I do a little distance, preferably the mile. Finished it in 6:36.24, which isn't good at all :confused:

    I do daily jogs around my house. Basically pacing form the front to the back repeatedly.

    One of my favorite spectator signs at the Pig today was a couple ladies holding up long sticks with question mark blocks on them sticking out over the runners. One of the blocks had a red mushroom coming out of it. I don't remember if the other one had anything. Anyway, I remember the signs looked very well made and I was impressed to see such a bold and blatant Super Mario reference from the spectators. It was around the 6 mile mark.
