Some runners soon will see the fruits of their training labor when they run in marathons within the next week.
On Saturday, Oct. 2, seasoned marathoners and Boston Marathon qualifiers Ronnie Dunn, of Paducah, Ky., and Amy Peal, of Calvert City, Ky., will run in the St. George Marathon in Utah.
Then on Sunday, Oct. 10, Jessica Watkins, of Benton, Ky., will make her marathon debut when she runs in the Chicago Marathon. She will be runing with Ashley Jones, Shelly Morris and Barbara Kough, all of the west Kentucky area.
Good luck to all three runners — and let me know if there are more individuals who will be running marathons in the next couple of weeks.
