Spotting the Escarpment Trail Run T-Shirt
You don't see many Escarpment Trail Run shirts randomly in your day-to-day travels, outside of a group of select runners. So I was surprised to spot one worn by a teenager in the Overlook Lodge at Belleayre Ski Center last Saturday. I proudly said, "Hi, I ran Escarpment four times." At first it seemed like he didn't get the connection, but then I think he remembered he was wearing that shirt. He said he was a volunteer at Blackhead. I told him sincerely thanks for being a volunteer - and we went on to discuss the lightning and the trail-turned-river, which seemed to be the most impressive part of the crazy weather that day last July. It seemed so out-of-context to be discussing it there, during the winter in a ski lodge after a day of great skiing. Nice kid. I told him I would see him in next July.
