Cross Fit competition
I began and ended my run on Saturday to the sound of grunts and groans. No, not mine. There was a day long Cross Fit couples challenge competition right there, next to my starting point on the trail.
Kettle bells were flying. Timers shouted out commands as the participants moved through the staions. Squats, dead lifts, kettle bells and cycles. They were timed and monitored. It looked extremely... well tortuous.

Excelsior Firecracker Races 2015
Overhead there was a buzzing like a giant mosquito. The pesty sound drown out the ‘pumped’ music playing to motivate the 3 waves of runners. The Mile, 5K and 10 K runners lined up and headed out 15 minutes later than scheduled. Organizers said it was due to a pickup truck parked on the course, in front of Maynards. I think that excuse is used for a lot of things.... but once the word came across the wires that the street was cleared, the races began.
