I traveled from the Chicago area with my family to run the Flying Pig as my first marathon. The thunderstorm in the first few miles had me worried that the race would be canceled and I was happy to be able to keep running. I couldn’t believe how many spectators were out cheering even through the worst of the storm! The crowd support was amazing, I loved having aid stations every mile, and it was overall a great experience. Apart from the marathon, we loved exploring Cincinnati with great meals out, a Reds game, and a visit to the zoo. A really fun city and race!

This was my first half marathon and overall was a great experience! Packet pickup at the small expo and race logistics all went smoothly. It’s an early start (7:00 a.m.) and they had the bottom floor of the parking garage near the start line open for gear check and as a warming station, but it wasn’t much warmer in there than it was outside (in the 30s). The course takes you through downtown Naperville and some of the nearby neighborhoods, which are VERY nice (read: fancy mansions). I chose this race because it’s local to me and I didn’t want to deal with a bunch of travel or big-race logistics for my first half. They offered an XS in the long-sleeve tech shirt, which I appreciated since unisex S often runs too big for me!
