Vicki's Death March - Summer Edition Aug '08
A most excellent group of VHTRC runners gathered in Shenandoah National Park on Sunday August 10, 2008 for a loop on a series of trails that are amongst the popular in the park. This particular loop has become known over the years as Vicki's Death March. Named after beloved VHTRC member Vicki Kendall, the "official" running of the Vicki Death March is traditionally held on the Friday after Thanksgiving. This Summer Edition was convened by the renowned Sophie Speidel, runner and blogger extraordinaire, as a fun addition to her Grindstone 100 training, and as a late summer opportunity to spend some quality time with good friends on these amazing trails. Unseasonably comfortable weather eventually devolved into a series of thunderstorms and downpours, but it didn't put even a hint of a damper on the post-run efforts to rehydrate and to snarf down healthy post-run tailgate fare.
