Ring Around the Neck Recap

A few Striders ran the Ring Around the Neck in Marblehead on April 27.

This race is a home game for me, so I refused to let any of the Kays beat me. Actually… Sean was ahead of me for most of the race, but it looked like a small dog (Pekingese perhaps?) tried to attack his ankle on the far side of Marblehead Neck. My Rhodesian Ridgeback is absolutely useless, but this poorly-leashed ball of white fluff slowed Sean down enough for me to lurch ahead at the summit of the Neck and to begin the descent with renewed optimism. Young people really have no concept of how fast older people can go downhill.
