Me with Randall McCoy (L) and Devil Anse Hatfield
Here's the old fueders with our friends from Wilmington, NC in costume as hillbillies. Turns out, they are good friends with our friends Jon and Kim down there.
Waiting to start
And we're off!
The scenery on the whole route was just beautiful. The start was in a town called Goody, Kentucky. We took off from the grocery store parking lot.
Notice the sweat line near the bottom of my shorts. I was that soaked.
Crossing the finish line, I got a high 5 from the Hatfield & McCoy guys. It was a pretty cool way to finish.
That's one happy marathoner! Sitting down at the finish line feels good.
Got another picture of me at the finish line with the Hatfield & McCoy guys wearing my finish medal and holding the moonshine jar with a cedar block noting my 128th place finish. that was a surprisingly cool award. close up pic of the medal and jar to come later.
Check out that elevation profile! notice the huge hill at mile 7? and you can kind of see where the rollers got really steep in the last half.
