If you will be among the thousands of people running either race, here are nine pig-themed gifs that will help you get in the right frame of mind.

Ignore the nerves. You've spent months training for this ...

... and spent a week “carb loading” to fuel up for your race.

You're so ready to run you'll feel like this at the start!

Hundreds of people will line the streets to cheer you on.

Those good souls will be the wind beneath your wings.

Remember: Stay focused on pace so you don't "bonk" mid-race.

When your legs hurt, think of the massage you'll get to reward your heroic effort ...

... and that amazing feeling you'll have after crossing the Finish Swine.

More than anything, remember to have a happy "Pig" Day!
