Tomorrow is the 50th Annual Heart of America Marathon, the race on the first cover of Distance Running News which became Runner's World.
There will be close to 300 registrants, a record number. This will be my 6th consecutive HOA and 20th marathon, not counting ultras. HOA was my first marathon which often isn't recommended due to its' difficulty. This year there will be many brave first timers on the course.
The marathon has been getting some local press:
Designed by the devil
Doesn't get any easier with time
Marathon keeps pace after 50 years
The man who made the marathon
Good luck to everyone running tomorrow and have fun!
