This Sunday is the Cincinnati “Flying Pig” Marathon. A marathon is quite an experience, all the people and all the excitement is great. It is also fun to see all the people along the course. Many of them bring signs to cheer on friends, family and total strangers. If you are not doing anything Sunday morning, get up early, make yourself a sign and join the fun. If you need some suggestions for what to put on your sign, below are some suggestions.
“Only 26.1 miles to go!”
“Just a 10K with a 20 mile warmup.”
“You’re going the wrong way!”
“Stop now! You’ll never make it!”
” Worst Parade Ever”
“Where are the floats and giant balloons?”
“Today, you’re all Kenyans.”
“All I want to do is cross the street”
“You’ll pay for this tomorrow!”
“Don’t stop — people are watching.”
“Chuck Norris never ran a marathon.”
“Hurry up, we have places to go”
“If you really loved me, you’d run faster!”
“I’m sure this seemed like a good idea 4 months ago.”
“This is your own fault. No one made you do this!”
“Toenails are for sissies.”
“Don’t worry, toenails are overrated”
“Black toenails are sexy”
“You’re not slow. You’re just enjoying the course.”
“Stop reading this and keep running!”
“Run like zombies are chasing you.”
“If it was easy, I would do it.”
“May the course be with you!”
“Try not. Do or not do. There is no try.” (with a picture of Yoda)
“Staying up all night making this sign was hard, too
“Go Random Stranger, Go!”
“Because 26.3 would be crazy”
“There is no app for this, keep running.”
“Your shoelaces are untied!”
“Run Forrest Run!”
“Hurry up! The half marathoners are eating all the food!”
Thought for the Week
“If you want to know what you’ll look like in ten years, look in the mirror after you’ve run a marathon. “ ~ Jeff Scaff
“You’re a better man than I am, Gunga Din!”
PS: And that was a compliment to you for running in the marathon.
This doesn’t seem like a good excuse for missing church.
Good luck Leonard. My bet is this will not be the last. But should it be you have had quite the ” run” in the Pig. Good work!!

And, now, for the obvious joke that someone has to write: I know that you want to stay and write some more, but you can’t because you have to run.
How did it go?
Slowest yet, but finished!
