I am all for Bobby's spicy chili, not a fan of Cincy chili.

Yeah, I said earlier, I'm not a fan. Hahahaha. My daughter's best friend is from Cincinnati, and when she got out of grad school they roomed together for about two years. They actually got into an argument over whether or not cinnamon was a chili ingredient. They agreed to disagree. Now my daughter lives in Cincinnati, and she doesn't buy chili in restaurants. I live not too far from there (1 1/2 hrs), and we can get chili that way here, but good golly. Some people love it. I don't. Fortunately, Cinci has a lot of other good foods and fun times to offer. Lots of German influence. It's a beautiful city. :-)

NOTHING is wrong with our chili. LOL However, it is different than you find elsewhere. It is a Greek style chili. It has spices like a little bit of cinnamon and chocolate in it. The ground beef is boiled before mixing in all the other ingredients. And it seems many people think it is odd to have your chili served over spaghetti. Go figure. I love it; but then I grew up on it. Not all visitors to our fair city like it.

Oh, and you have to have oyster crackers with it. Here's a wiki link that has a pic of it:

Here's an even better pic from my favorite chili restaurant:

You guys really have never truly experienced Cincinnati if you have not eaten a 3 or 4 or 5-way here. It is a style of Cincinnati chili. If you've never had it, it's probably not a good idea to try for the first time before a race...just saying. But, if you want a gastronomic treat afterwards, just let me know.

Cincinnati chili is unique (I won't give away the secret ingredients 'cause I don't want to scare you off).
- a 3-way is chili, spaghetti and cheese combo
- a 4-way is chili, spaghetti, cheese and onions or beans
- a 5-way is chili, spaghetti, cheese, onions and beans

Gooooood stuff!

Anyway, that's what the 3-way and 4-way Pig races are named for.

Jeri- keep up the recovery training Aqua jogging & bike to keep your body strong while recovering emoticon I find the pool is #1 for my body to repair it's therapeutic even floating on my back and swimming around, it gets rid of any aches and pains from the high impact of running.

Good morning!! I tried to get up and go to the pool this morning, but last night I wore myself out on the bike and the rowing machine. I will do the same workout again this evening, tomorrow will be a rest day, and then aqua jog Friday and Saturday. I am still going to try to do the full at the Pig, but it's looking more and more like I'll be doing the half. I know I'm keeping myself in good shape while I'm off the road, but I just don't see myself getting back on the road for at least another few weeks.

Bobby, you should be able to do it but I'm no Doc. If you do deep water jogging there's 0 impact.

Here's a link to an article about it:
pfitzinger.com/labreports/water.shtm
l


...and here's a link to the 9 week program:
www.pfitzinger.com/labreports/9wkH2O
.h
tm


I didn't follow it to a "T" because I couldn't get to the Y that often but I did 2 or 3 a week & chose to do intervals. Very monotonous to do the steady state workouts & some believe the intervals are more beneficial because they help you maintain cardio as well; heart rate goes higher with speed intervals.

I can email you some info on how I structured some of my workouts if you're interested; made them easier to endure :) Nothing like running on land but most definitely helps you maintain a good level of running fitness.

Deej- emoticon I talked to a Boston marathoner who was injured and used aqua jogging to keep up his condition, and was able to bounce back. When I had an issue I scaled back my distance goal I was happy doing the 10K that year.

I'm going to need name tags I have a hard time when meeting first time connecting who's who from Spark to meeting in person emoticon

Jeri, my Doc reminds me every week that if I just keep up with my Aqua jogging, I'll be very surprised at how quickly I'll "bounce back"... I know this from experience as well, from aqua jogging throughout my recovery from stress fx last year. He said he came back to PR after using this for recovery; I had the same experience.

Keep on keepin' on with those aqua workouts; I did a lot of interval sessions to break the monotony! You GO girl!

John, excited to see you again as well :) and I'm staying at the Millennium w/ Ms Elsa :)

WOO HOO!! Go Sparkers!!! emoticon

Anne- I had the same cold flu bug but its all gone now and I'm back in the running just start back gradually, you still have enough time. Look forward to finally meeting you.

Deej- will be nice to re-unite again

You should both book a room at the Millinium Cinn. where everyone is staying I think there's very few left for that weekend. (You CAN always cancel the room up to 3 days before event but it would be hard to get a room later on as marathon weekends get hotels fully booked)

Hotel is booked, I'm just online now booking flight.

Jeri- dont forget there's also a 10K

Hi all! Figured I better get in here and get myself all excited about running the HM! Can't wait to see everyone! Hoping to stay healthy now that I seemed to finally kick this nasty flu/cold/bronchitis virus that has kept me down since Thanksgiving! I am up and moving finally!
Go Pig training!!!!

Jeri, we're two peas in a "pool" HA! So sorry the hip has you sidelined for January my friend but I'm very happy to hear you have a coach guiding you through!! Keep up the Aqua Jogging; it will make a huge difference in your comeback!!

I too am in injury recovery mode. Had to bow out of the 1/2 I had scheduled for March 30th but hoping to run both the Derby 1/2 (weekend before Pig) & the Pig 1/2. My Sports Chiro is hopeful he'll have me back on the road soon.

Mel, the relay sounds fun :) will be soooo good to see so many of you again & meet even more Sparkers!

I am injured. Yikes!! Some kind of hip injury, not sure what. I hired a new running coach to get me through this. He said he is going to have to change my focus from "race-goal oriented" to "healing-oriented." I'm not allowed to road-run through January. BUT... I will be aqua jogging 4 days a week, and doing strength training. We will reassess at the end of January and go from there. I don't want to give up on the Pig!

Me too Carrie!! And I'm super psyched I'm gonna get to see you again :) Nothin' much more fun than hangin' with Spark friends! I finally made it official a week or two ago & officially registered for the half! I've always wanted to run this one; here's hoping I'm all fixed up & ready to go in OhiO! HA :) lame, I know!

I've been kind of on the fence trying to decide whether to go for the whole PIG or do the half this year. My life is all upside down right now (just left a job after 26 years and looking for the next one), so I don't know what my available time will be like in the coming months. After lots of deliberation, I think the half is going to be my goal and I can always change the registration up to the full if things go well and I have more time for training.

I love this race and am looking forward to being part of this team!

It will be pouring rain here all day tomorrow. Who else is going to get soaked during their weekend run?
