2010 Gristmill Grinder Race Report

 

Babcock was Perfect! What an incredible day for the Grinder this year. We had ideal weather, 50 degrees and sunny with a breeze…. The driest trails ever for the race. A light rain the night before knocked the pollen down. New green on the trees and ground flowers. WOW! Add to that a RECORD turnout of runners and walkers and you have something special, huh? With folks coming from MI, IL, VA, OH, TN, NY, NC, IN, KY and a crowd of locals, man I am still reeling from it all! Can you sayEnthusiasm? Well there was plenty to go around I can assure you. From the beginning when we were lining up for the BIG PICTURE to the end of the run and walk, folks were enjoying a beautiful day at the beautiful park. I had to hustle to get to the Skyline Trail overlook to take some pictures and saw some amazing things there. people skipping, jumping up and down, stopping to pull out a camera and take a picture!? I am still laughing at it all- and I hope you are too.

I would like to send a big SHOUT OUT also to all our volunteers that pitched in to make it work smoothly… while it was a perfect day for running it was a bit chilly for standing around. We could not have done it without you. Thanks!!

Iplayoutside captured some of our fun and you can see it here
