Vicki’s Death March – Shenandoah National Park

While many people were out shopping with the mobs in malls, I was lucky enough to be on the top of the world with my running club. Black Friday was the 9th annual running of “Vicki’s Death March”, otherwise known as the  Shenandoah National Park’s “greatest hits” trail run. The run started in the Old Rag parking lot and went up White Oak Canyon to Hawksbill summit, following the AT to Skyland, Little Stony Man, Corbin Cabin, Nicholson Hollow and back to Old Rag. Lots of climbing, a fair amount of rocks, roots, leaf cover and even a little ice.  It was a gorgeous day, with a bright blue sky and warmish temperatures – a perfect day to play on trail.

  2. Lovely, even if it’s not green or colorful like summer or fall. It’s always beautiful out there. So fun to run a bit with you out there!
