HEART Mini Marathon - Cincinnati 2014

Post by echoguy on Thu Oct 31, 2013 10:36 am

Hey Everybody:

Just a heads up that we are planning to have a team for the Heart Mini Marathon here in Cincinnati on Sunday, March 16. The events of the day include the traditional 15k race (the one I will be running) along with a concurrent half marathon and a separate 5k run/walk and a 10k walk.

Here is the link to the web site for the race. The web site is the same that they use for all of the "heart walk" events across the country, so can be a little confusing. Also, we are one of the very few places that actually have a competitive run.

http://cincinnati.kintera.org/faf/home/default.asp?ievent=1069450

Who is in for 2014???

I hope to make it this year!

This is a fantastic event with a special division for runners who have heart problems plus a special VIP reception for them after the race. I ran it in 2012 with the gang and loved it. I registered for it again in 2013 but got very sick just before the race and had to bail out... I'm counting on better luck this year.

If you've never run this race it's worth considering... There's always a lot of our regulars from the HEART yearly gatherings there so it's a fun weekend. The race hotel is great (and reasonable) and the Expo and the race start/finish are all within a couple of blocks so it's easy too.

Funny this thread shows up tonight, I was telling my Dave about the Heart Mini on the way home tonight and wanting to go this time.  I even asked if he wanted to drive, he said "Are you crazy?"  lol!, "I'm not driving, we'll fly" .  So I will start checking airfare and all that fun stuff.  I wonder if this is Spring Break week because if it is, I'll have to make boarding arrangements for the fur balls early!

This is the hotel we stayed at Kevin... They had a special rate for the race. Either $99.00 or $115.00 I can't remember which. A very nice hotel and no need to drive.

That's great Louise! I think you'll like it.

I'm not sure about Spring Break but it is St Patrick's weekend and they party in Cincinnati.

Fingers crossed, I want to run the 15K. Our CA shirts from Syracuse will fit in with the weekend!

I'm in! Running is probably one of those things I should stop trying to do -- if I'm honest, it's probably just a marginally acceptable excuse to wear skimpy, colourful & silky shorts. Embarassed 

This time I am going to follow a plan to prepare for the Mini. I'll still be slow, but I'm hoping to feel better. Might even get myself a new pair of shorts. Smile

Hello fellow Ohio travelers!

Just spoke to Allison at AHA - she told me that they are planning to block off some rooms at the Cincinnati Hilton at a discounted rate - these will be available after the first of the year. If this rate is the same as last year's rate - it's a pretty substantial discount!

http://www3.hilton.com/en/hotels/ohio/hilton-cincinnati-netherland-plaza-CVGNPHF/index.html

(Oh and apparently passports are no longer a requirement for Michigan residents, however Bill and I may wish to sneak across the border anyway - just for the fun of it)

Thanks Rachel, that's good to know... The Hilton is a very nice hotel and they had a great discount for the Mini last time I was there.

In lieu of passports you may want to consider bringing Cheese Puffs...

They tend to soothe Gary when he's feeling grumpy about OSU not winning jocolor

I have started checking airfare, should drop after the holidays but you never know.  Fares change weekly, I can't remember if it's every Tuesday or Wednesday?  Anyone know?  

Training is going ok I guess, have to stop eating the Christmas cookies and the chocolate!  So far we are staying healthy and avoiding flu that is going rampant here in TX.  The only big problem is it's Cedar fever time.

This event is going to be a lot of FUN!

So looking forward to seeing you again LM!!!! Stay healthy (um.....I've heard that eating a little chocolate wards off the flu......right? Maybe not - maybe that's just what I've been telling myself - LOL)

Glad to hear your training is on track Louise. I think those Christmas cookies and chocolate have been a challenge for most of us here except maybe Iron Will Don but after tomorrow it's knuckle down time... The HEART Mini is a good motivator!

Stay Healty!

Bill has been busy on the HEART web page again... Check out this AHA video link he added about the upcoming Heart Mini.

http://heartorg.zohosites.com/spring-2014-heart-meeting-in-cincinnati-oh.html

Our own Tom Price is featured in the first few minutes of the video... We hope you'll consider joining us in March for this very special event!

Hey Everybody:

I have updated our team page for the Heart Mini. I now know how to do some of the editing, so if you would like our site to say something else, or use a different photo, please let me know!

Just took a peek at weather.com, they are calling for race day low31, high 53.  Sunrise is 7:43 so we will start in the dark, and probably at the low of 31, still not bad!

Woo Hoo! a heat wave!!!  Sure beats the -15 to -20 degree mornings we've been having around here for so long. It's finally getting near something resembling running weather  sunny
