Pig Points

Yogi Berra is quoted as saying, "Ninety percent of baseball is mental, the other half is physical." Yogi may not get fractions, but he gets how important the mental part of sports is. Dr. Barbara Walker, a sports psychologist, has these tips to get your brain working with your body to accomplish your Marathon goals: Focusing on your own performance is the only thing you can control. Improving against your past performance rather than comparing yourself against an opponent can bring satisfaction. If you set your goals effectively, and follow through with the goals you set, the outcome goals of winning will take care of itself.

The Greening 'o the Pig

More than 4,000 trees will be planted in Cincinnati parks to help offset the 'carbon footprint' of the Flying Pig Marathon. With the help of Natorp's landscapers and the Cincinnati Park Board, the Pig will be greener this year than ever before. Make sure you recycle during Marathon weekend and help keep the Pig green!
