The Hatfield-McCoy Marathon is Saturday! I'm leaving tomorrow morning, driving to KY... well, WV, actually; the whole thing starts right on the state line and is run mostly in KY.
I've been nursing a sore foot for about 3 weeks... something wrong with my metatarsal head (ball of foot) after hiking in bad shoes/boots when I was repainting the trial markers. Actually it doesn't hurt that much when I run, only when I walk, so I guess I better not walk during the marathon too much :-) If it feels as if it's getting more injured, I'll bail. It would be my first DNF ever, but it's not worth really hurting it and then being out for 6 weeks. We'll see how it goes.
I'm packing up my stuff now and will be off in the morning! My friend WrayJean from Indiana is sharing my room, along with her friend Kathy. I haven't seen WrayJean since Feb. of 2005, at the Gasparilla Marathon in Tampa. So that will be a lot of fun.
I'll let y'all know how it goes!
