2019 Mt. Greylock Trail Races

This was supposed to be the year that we broke the streak. Last year, Debbie made it to her 20th consecutive Mt. Greylock Trail Race and we felt like we were no longer “obligated” to keep the streak going. This year, we decided that we would take a break.

We didn’t pre-register because we have a bunch of travel starting next weekend,  we raced the Belltown Throwdown yesterday, and I had planned Monday travel to our plant north of Boston. I didn’t want to drive to The Berkshires for a short trail race considering we had no plans to run the half-marathon.

Then, we woke up this morning, and in a matter of minutes, changed our minds. It was raining, which meant that doing stuff around home wouldn’t be pleasant. If it dawned sunny like yesterday, I would have been tempted to remain home and do a long bike ride. Instead, running made more sense. I’ve spent part of every Father’s Day since I first became a Dad, at Greylock Glen in Adams, MA. I suggested to Debbie that we go, and she was immediately on board.

We roused the kids and were in the car by 7:45 A.M. We arrived at Greylock Glen around 9:35 A.M., registered, and hung out with some of our long time Grand Tree Trail Running Series Friends. The Greylock numbers have dwindled but the WMAC still puts a solid effort into this event and we love it.

The four of us opted to run together, which was a nice change of pace. The 5K is really only 2.6 miles, so it was over in less than 30 minutes. We mingled a bit as the rain came down, but then headed for Northampton where we had a nice lunch at Paul & Elizabeth’s. We walked around Thornes Marketplace and were back home by 3:30 P.M.

The streak is alive!
