#34-The Sun-The Hogeye Marathon-Springdale, AR
The Hogeye Marathon-Springdale, Arkansas
It was a long drive down to northwest Arkansas from Mpls. We did it in one full day of driving, through the fallow fields of Iowa and Missouri. Leaving before 8 am and arriving 11 hours later with 5 minutes to spare before the end of packet pick up. The Hogeye Marathon is a big deal in this town of Springdale where Tyson has its world headquarters. It has taken place since 1977.
Coming from the cold northern climate, the beauty of spring had arrived in Springdale, Arkansas and it was a welcome sight. The morning low was below 30 degrees and for residents of the area it felt very chilly. I knew that it was prefect running weather. The sky was pastel and I knew the sun would be out. It was a good day to have a good day (running).
