Go Spark Woggers! Please send me a private message so that I can get payment on registration costs. I can also forward registration confirmation for the race to the email address that you prefer.

I just wanted to update that I am still lacking Renee's information to register our relay team in the Pig site. We may need to recruit someone else that is fine with a 10k distance so we can finalize things.

I am fine to take the longest one. No matter to me. I still need Renee's info to register our team.

Julie - Take your pick - second leg - hilliest or third leg - longest? I'll take the one you don't and we'll let Lynn and Renee decide which of them wants to start and who will finish. We will be at the finish swine waiting for them.

Above is the link for the relay information for PIG. One person would have to register. The cost is $260 until January 31st and works out to $65 per person. I am printing the information from the above link and will read it over when I get a chance.

Feel free to add to this post ladies.

We will need to determine which of us is doing each leg with the second leg being the shortest (5.16 miles), but hilliest and the third leg the longest (7.67 miles).

So Renee, Lynn, and Julie - I look forward to running with you in Cinci! Guess I better start planning the trip. Woo Hoo!

Oh and add me to that Virgin Relay group. I do have to confess that it won't be my first big race of the year though. Disney Princess Half Marathon - one month from tomorrow.

For all of us virtuous relay runners, I just now took my first look at the relay information and I was surprised to find that the legs aren't evenly split. I just assumed it was 26.2 divided by 4. No. But, they very mercifully made that second leg the shortest as it contains the PARK which you will see is ALL elevation. Just wanted to pass that along...

I'm running the 3rd leg for the SASSY Spark relay team, so when y'all get your legs figured out, we can get together and figure out how the staging works. I'm a relay VIRGIN, so this will be interesting!!!

I told Renee I wanted to do the relay if we had enough people. It sounds like we have our 4 then? I am on FB more (and only at night) than anywhere else.

I just went back and read Renee's last post. Renee and Lynn - it sounds like you found a third person in me. Now we need a fourth. Lynn and Renee - can't wait to see you again!

I have been on the fence about coming to Pig, but I would so love to see my Spark Friends from JASR again. I've never done a relay and would love to try, but it would have to be a fun run because fast is something I will never be.

Lynn, if you can walk the HM distance, surely you can do the relay (1/4 marathon distance). There is 1 relay team complete. We're looking to get Renee on a relay, so c'mon folks, step right up :-) Nudge nudge...

Renee- I haven't run for the past year, really, because of my stupid PF:( I'm trying to decide whether to walk the HM with Merle or work up to the relay distance.

Is there a team yet?

Is anyone else interested in forming a relay team or know of a team that needs another member? I know I won't be ready for the HM. I can do the 10K, but I really want to run/walk on the same day as everyone else. And it's more fun to participate than to watch! Please know that I won't be going to for speed; my focus is to finish. Any takers?

I've decided I'm doing the first leg of the relay and then I'm continuing on to complete the HM or maybe even the FM. Never done a FM before but I'd like to do it once just to say I had and know I could. What better time to do one than when my teamies can run with me for the last three legs of it!

I have never tried a relay but would love to! I think it would be easier for me to get back to that distance than any other.

Relays are FUN. Really. I cannot say enough. Why? Because if you are a busy person (mom, husband, gma, etc) then you can still participate. PLUS...you are essentially running a 10k. This allows you to train to your best 10k and just rock it. You get a team of folks who have trained up to that and it is so exciting. I did a half marathon relay and I truly enjoyed it. This is definitely the better way for me to go.
