About Me

  • Race that's calling my name:
  • I run because:

    I run because I can. I was an NCAA Division 1 college soccer player and was always told how to workout, what to eat, and how to live. Once I retired, I enjoyed the freedom that running gave me and loved how I was in control. Running is what keeps me sane (but can also make me crazy). Meeting new people, visiting new cities, and pushing the body to the limit are what keep me going.

This run honors heart survivors and patients. It is pretty inspirational to be running next to someone who has received a new heart. As a race, it is really hilly, but the major hill is well supported by the crowds and everyone is pushing each other. Great big race that is for a greater purpose.

If you want to get a PR/BQ, this is an ideal race. The weather at this time of year is not too hot but can get humid! It is a smaller race so if you rely on crowd support to get you through, you might want to find another race. The people that were there volunteering were incredible and genuinely excited for the runners. The expo was so-so and post race celebration was not the best. I would not run this race again, but recommend it to those who want to explore a new part of Georgia.

I am pretty sure miles 9-11 is completely uphill with no break. Smaller race but the city of Asheville is beautiful and this race is a good excuse to explore this unique town.

I may be a little biased because this is my hometown but I will forever run this race until I can’t anymore. Crowd support, swag, hilly (but downhills make up for it), beautiful city, incredible expo, really everything you need in a race can be found at the Cincinnati Flying Pig. 10/10 recommend.

To be honest, there is nothing special about this race. It is super flat and the weather is typically great at this time, but there is nothing in my mind that stands out about it. That being said, I would run it over and over again. It is just a solid race that is easy to run and fun to prepare for and celebrate after. Birmingham is a really cool city and it proves to be a great little racecation. I recommend this race to really anyone. It is just a good race.
