Getting excited

Now that I'm in the two-week window before the The Flying Pig Marathon I'm checking out the website for daily updates, forum posts, race day protocol, etc..

Today, I came across this press release that posted April 15:

"Now called the Flying Pig Marathon powered by P&G, the Marathon’s weekend events with P&G include the Crest Smile Mile at Mile 22; Old Spice High Endurance Mile to the Finish, with prizes going to the fastest male and female runner along the final mile; the Head & Shoulders Above the Rest award, to the fastest leg of the City Dash 4-person relay for male, female and co-ed teams; ‘Lipstick on a Pig,’ where runners will be offered free lipstick samples so they’ll look their best for their finish line photo, and the Pampers Diaper Dash on Saturday, for the littlest “Piglets.” The weekend Health & Fitness Expo also will be known as the P&G Health & Fitness Expo."

I think this has become my favorite race ever--and I haven't even picked up my race number yet!

Haha, I'm pretty sure you couldn't get me to smile at mile-22 of a marathon if you paid me . . . that should be interesting! And yay, you're getting close to race day now!!! :)

I you had better post race photos of smiles at mile 22 and lipstick at the finish.

Bonus points if you also have a Pampers diaper on.
