It’s the most wonderful time of the Year. Of course this pertains to the time frame before The Ring and about 4 hours after finishing The Ring..it’s that weird time of actually running The Ring that is kinda uncomfortable.
I just re-read all my Ring reports. It’s useful in that it helps me remember small details and larger issues that may have occurred.
It dawned on me that it could be useful to look at my splits from the last few years, as The Massanutten Trail has not changed at all, so this will be the same course!
“I was trying to describe to Alan (my husband) how that long stretch of trail through the Peach Orchard/Duncan Hollow area is aesthetically uninteresting, has almost no view, and grinds you down by that slight but wearying uphill grade as one approaches Waterfall. I finally described it like this: “It’s like walking through a bland office corridor in Purgatory.” -Carter Wiecking, VHTRC’er
