Wordless Wednesday: MMT100

This weekend is the Massanutten Mountain Trails 100 Mile race, put on by the VHTRC (my trail running club). I'm doing my part by volunteering at an aid station.

It's quite the social event. All my friends will be there, running, volunteering, crewing or pacing someone. Runners have 36 hours to finish this tough, rocky ultramarathon with 16,200 feet of ascent over 100 miles.

If you're running, I'll see you at Veach Gap. Good luck out there!

Looks like a fun way to spend a weekend, right?

Of course I'll have to get some apple cider donuts from the Apple House

Spring came early. Which wildflowers will be in bloom in the mountains this year?

The irrepressible Gary Knipling will be running his 15th MMT100!
Will he carry the mango bikini bottoms again?
MMT100 always brings back memories of Mike Broderick. We miss you, friend.

Sadly, all of your friends will not be there. But, I'll be thinking of you all! Have fun out there this weekend. Jealous!!

So wish I could be there. Have a wonderful time.

And maybe you should consider, instead of Laurel Highlands, oh, say, The Ring! I hope to make the trek down again this year.

I love events that have such interesting, storied histories and traditions. Enjoy the apple-cider doughnut, and the inspiring performances!
