I’m Not Dead, I’m in Southwest Virginia

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 …
