    This might not be the most scenic course, but you won’t meet any more hospitable and friendly people anywhere. For such a small race, the aid station food and drink were second to none. In the morning, we had freshly cooked pancakes with bacon and sausage. During the day there were hamburgers, pizza, and Mexican food. We weren’t able to go inside the Technical School this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but we’re supposed to be outside running anyway, right?

    The weather was almost perfect for running this year. The rain stopped just as the race started, and it remained overcast, but dry for the rest of the weekend. Except for just about one stretch, there was enough light to run without a headlamp. The pavement was kind of hard on my feet, but I suppose that is the price I had to pay for not getting in too many long runs in the months leading up to the race. Overall, it was a good weekend in which I made a lot of new running friends.

    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.
