‘The summer night is like a perfection of thought.’ – Wallace Stevens
A lawn devoid of movement slowly started filling with the sounds of friends, old and new, chatting and laughing together. A shimmering lake in the distance, the sounds of maybe a few too many bugs buzzing around our heads, and the sun shining long into the evening. The Shawangunk Runners annual Summer Solstice 14k Trail Run took place on a magnificent evening yesterday. I’m not sure anything bad could have been said about the weather, the race or the people.
First I want to thank the race director Steve Schallenkamp for once again putting together a wonderful race. Also we can’t thank the volunteers enough without whom we wouldn’t be able to put on the race. Hopefully you all thanked them profusely when you saw them.
Personally I want to thank all those who didn’t mind that I forgot their names during bib pickup. I find it amazing how quickly my mind blanks when I’m a little stressed.
I hope you all will come back next year and/or join us for some of our other races (below).
