Double half marathon weekend

Filed under: Uncategorized — workaholicrunner @ 8:51 pm

On Saturday, I ran the Capital City Half Marathon also known as the Columbus Distance Classic in Columbus, Ohio.  I finished in 2:10:28, which is about 6:04 faster than the last half marathon I ran two weeks ago.  The race was done at 10:30 and I still had some energy.  Thus, after a shower and lunch, I drove down to Cincinnati, Ohio to register at the Flying Pig Marathon expo and get a hotel room.

I decided to run the Flying Pig half marathon at a very slow, relaxed pace early at 6:30 am Sunday.  I completed a refreshing Sunday morning run amidst the rain storms in Cincinnati in 2:28:14, my slowest half marathon ever but one of the more enjoyable ones.  The best part of the Flying Pig experience was at the Expo where they were selling Flying Pig t-shirt from previous marathons at $1 per shirt.  I purchased 24 shirts.



  1. So… are you gonna give me one of those shirts? Hehe…

  5. ey Alexis- I’m a S/M. BTW, good you’re keeping in shape. I’m proposing a futbol friendly exhibition (even #’d batches vs odd-#’d batches) in next year’s Pisay homecoming. Help spread the word.
    I have a colleague in hp named Paul who ran a 2:54 in last Sunday’s flying pig. What’s amazing is he’s been running 20+ years but he’s only done marathons the past 3 years.

  6. That is indeed unusual for someone to have run 20+ years and only started doing marathons for 3 year.

    Next time you have a business trip in the US, let me know. I will find you a marathon or half marathon within driving distance of Cincinnati.

  7. Pablo,

    P&G ran out of free Crest toothpaste during the expo! At least they had a lot of free shampoo left.

  10. […] one of the 24 2008 Flying Pig marathon T-shirts purchased by Workaholic Runner as reported in his Double half marathon weekend post. The T-shirt fits just right and actually makes me look thin! Thanks, Workaholic […]
