Today we were at the 30th anniversary of the Mt. Greylock Tral Races. Greylock was the 6th race in this year’s New England Grand Tree Trail Running Series. It was also the 16th year in a row that Debbie has run the race, which is quite a streak. Next year, she enters a new age group, but I’m sure the streak will continue.
It was fitting that today was Father’s Day. My last time on Greylock was earlier this year when my son and I had a Father/Son adventure. I’ve run Greylock many times, but took 2014 off. Our son did the short course, and thank you again to the Carew Family, who accompanied him during the race like last year.
I spent time hanging out in Greylock Glen with our daughter, Kim, Jackson, and Lacy Brown. We had a ton of fun.
I’ve been to 14 of those Greylock’s with Debbie. It was her first “real” trail race in 1999 and she has done many since. Her first was before we met that October. It’s great to return year after year with our family. Some faces have changed, but many have stayed the same. It was great to reconnect with our trail runner friends.
The weather was a bit rough when we arrived. It was cool, overcast, and windy. It remained that way until early afternoon, when the fun finally warmed things up a bit. I’m looking forward to running again at Greylock in the future.
