I’ve been off the grid this week on our annual family vacation to Hungry Mother State Park in Marion, Virginia.
It’s been an action-packed week with fishing, hiking and a 20-mile bike jaunt down “the Virginia Creeper Trail” from the top of White Top Mountain into the sun washed oasis of Damascus. Simply my favorite place in the Commonwealth.
I ran up Molly’s Knob this morning, which is the highest point in the Park. To the summit and back in 50:02. That’s ninety seconds slower than last year. The slow degradation of the human body continues.
Will be back this weekend — to celebrate my 18th wedding anniversary (or, alternatively, watch UVA vs. UCLA in college football).
Mercifully free from the updates on the McDonnell corruption trial …
