    On the second year of this race, we saw the number of participants double. Everyone there was going after a goal. My goal was to put one foot in front of the other for as many miles as possible given my limited training for this event. As a seasoned marathoner (halfs and ultras included), I set off to do my best and completed more than I expected given the lack of training.

    You won’t be able to find any more friendly and hospitable people anywhere than the people of Williamson, WV, which held the first annual Conquer the Wall 35-hour Run. The weather was damp in the morning when the timing company was setting up the timing mat at the start/finish, and they ran into some electrical problems which delayed the start by one hour. Fortunately, we had access to the Williamson Community Center which was well supplied with coffee, fruit, and food throughout the day. Runners were allowed to sleep on cots in the Community Center the night before, and maintain an indoor camp right next to the course throughout the race. Most of the course was pavement, and it was as flat as a pancake, with views of the surrounding hills in almost every direction. Along the south side of the flood wall, you could see the Tug Fork River, and on the north side, you could watch coal trains moving coal through town. It really wasn’t that boring even though it was only a two mile loop because there were a lot of interesting views to see, including a tunnel that the trains were going through. There were plenty of porta pottys at both ends of the loop, as well as indoor facilities inside the community center. I kind of regret my decision to leave early, and if I do it again, I will plan on staying the full time.
