The Start of the Iron Horse Marathon

It’s a misty morning. It rained last night, but the ground should stay firm. Coming down the long drive, it reminds me of the TV show “Dallas” and Southfork.  The weather is perfect for the horses, and if it stays just misty, it won’t be bad for the volunteers either.  It is supposed to burn off later and be in the low 80s.

For those who don’t go until later, breakfast is available at the Iron Horse Cafe – their specialty is the Iron Horse breakfast: two huge blueberry pancakes, two scrambled eggs and two sausages!  That will keep you going for a while!

There is a very large area for the rest halt and the vet check at the end of Section E.  It makes it very easy for the officials, volunteers and grooms to do their jobs.
