When Pigs Fly

20 Jan

After yesterday’s early AM run, some of my running group ladies and I sat at Panera drinking coffee, gaining back the calories we’d just burned and planning our next race.

Here’s a hint:

Figured it out yet?

No, it’s not the Bacon Chocolate Marathon (though I think there’s potential there). Some of us are running the Flying Pig Marathon in May!

You might be wondering why I would want to run a race in Cincinnati, OH of all places to choose from. I read about Flying Pig a while ago in a Runner’s World article called ‘A First Marathon to Remember.’ I remember thinking “hey this sounds like a fun race.” And I have a fondness of making pig noises. When I found out some of the ladies wanted to do it as well, I was in. Plus the flying chocolate pig (with bacon) that my group leader gave me was oddly delicious. I’m hoping its a sign of a race to remember.

I was too focused on running my first marathon during the New Year to make any goals for myself. That’s alright, I typically try to set goals for myself randomly, not just at the start of the year.

Here’s a look at the last set of goals I set for myself:

Previous Goals:

  • Run a marathon – Check!
  • Start a blog – Check!
  • See more doctors – Um…

Okay, so I haven’t been too good at that last goal. For some reason I haven’t brought myself to do a basic wellness exam in years. And I need my eyes retested bad. But I did manage to go to the dentist and keep up on my cleanings. Maybe it’s a tiny check.

With that I introduce my next set of goals.

New Goals:

  • See more doctors
  • Try yoga
  • Run a marathon without feeling like death

Do you have any fun new goals?
