Hardship is a matter of perspective. Just ask Kelly Luckett, a leg amputee who will be among the 7,000 marathoners and half-marathoners taking part in this morning's Baltimore Running Festival. From Patterson Park to the point on 33rd Street where Memorial Stadium was once a landmark, they face a six-mile stretch that starts with a climb of more than 200 feet, then goes up and down a series of hills. Marathoners like Luckett get that from mile markers 16 to 22. It's hell on the hamstrings, but it won't faze her. Luckett's training has been shot since Aug. 4, her 38th birthday, when a storm toppled a poplar tree and damaged a third of her house in Decatur, Ga. Workouts were already problematic since she lost her right leg in a riding lawn mower accident when she was 2. She does not recall that horrific incident, just climbing trees, joining a Girl Scout troop and hiking around her childhood home in Louisville, Ky. Luckett married and moved to a suburb of Atlanta, where her husband, Brian, fit into a road-racing scene that revolves around the world's largest 10K. Feeling left out of the Peachtree Road Race, Luckett joined the 55,000 in the 2003 throng.

As summer draws to a close, county fairs are a big attraction. One that is popular throughout the region is the Lucketts Fair, now in its 22nd year. This is not a big, glitzy fair with midway rides and big-name stars; it's more like the country fairs of yesteryear, with old-fashioned amusements for each member of the family. It's set for Aug. 26-27 on the grounds of the Lucketts Community Center, a restored early-1900s schoolhouse on U.S. Route 15, eight miles north of Leesburg, Va.There are two separate stages -- one for adults, where different bluegrass groups will perform every hour between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m., and a second one offering entertainment for children.
