I completed my 7th half marathon the first weekend in May. Cincinnati was an exciting venue to run in. There were thousands of runners and even more spectators making it an adrenaline run of a race! And - it was my fastest half marathon ever. I was priviledged to run for Michael Stangelo - a United States marine who sadly lost his life to the PTSD he suffered through after returning from Iraq. In doing so I got to represent a great organization - 22 Too Many. It was also a weekend of meeting up with many friends, and creating some lifelong memories. That is often the greatest part of these race weekends. Enjoy my recap of the Flying Pig 2017.
