I am interested in the 5K or part of a relay. I am still getting the hip back into walking/running shape so I will be slow either way I go.

Just a heads-up, May 5th is also the date of the Pittsburgh Marathon (and half & relay), so that might affect some people's availability.

Easter weekend feels awfully early this year!

the HM course looked like a steady climb from mile 5-8 about 300 ft elevation gain over the 3 miles, so about 100 ft per mile where as JASR is about 100 ft in that 1/4 mile climb.
anne and i are thinking about the marathon relay.... 4 runners, legs are 7 miles, 5, 7.7 and 6.5 miles need to see if any one else would be interested in running them

Ya know, other then that one big hill in the beginning at JASR, I didn't find it to be too bad at all. I've heard The Pig is really hilly.....

I've been told it's hilly but I've never run it. I fully plan to be part of this, Lord willin'... Cinci's about 1.5 hrs away.

Early registration ends 10/31. HM looks hilly, with 1 steep section, a category 5 hill per mapmyrun. That's the "easiest" hill category. But we end with a nice downhill!

hi folks hope you are all running your tails off not that the weather has started to cool down.

so anyhow if you have not heard yet JASR 2013 is on easter weekend...... so i am sure numbers will be way down with the exception of the local runners. we have discussed this among many of the regulars and out of towners for JASR and decided that we are not going to make it a large event this year emoticon

HOWEVER 2014 WILL BE BACK STRONGER THAN EVER, GUARANTEED !!!!!!!!!

SO.... 2013 will be the year of the PIG in cincinnati oh
www.flyingpigmarathon.com/

there is a 5 and 10k on saturday 5/4/13 and a half and full marathon along with a 4 person relay on sunday 5/5/13. many of the JASR crew plan on attending the PIG, we can continue to use the spark people JASR team to communicate until some local cincinatian can start a PIG team (Hint, Hint) to pass out info, set up hotels etc...... again hint, hint

if your heart is set on visiting pittsburgh in 2013 there is the rock and roll half marathon in august that several of us are doing also..

anyhow hope to many of you at the PIG!
