River Run half marathon
Rockford, IL – 8/19/23
I had a 13 mile run on my schedule so figured why not find a half to run. This was a nice low key small race, along the river. I wore my League of Their Own outfit, since the Rockford Peaches were well known there. Got lots of cheers, and ran just under 1:50.

Cincinnati Flying Pig 5k/10k/half marathon
Cincinnati, Oh – 5/7/23
I ran the 5k and 10k on Saturday, and they were great fun. The half on Sunday was brutal- torrential rain, lightning, and a 5 mile climb in the middle. I had to stop and shelter in place on the course about 45 minutes in, because of lightning. And my Pigs in Space costume kind of melted by the end. But I finished it.
