|Road trip! (Celebrating National Sandwich Day as we ride.)|
The trail passes through three rock tunnels, the longest of which is 3/4 of a mile long. The course of the Rails to Trails Marathon, which begins and ends in Norwalk, runs right through it. Runners are handed flashlights before entering the long, dark tunnel.
|Off to carb load!|
|Spaghetti, salad, and homemade desserts!|
What makes this marathon special is the down-home feel. It seems like the whole town turns out to welcome guests--beginning with a spaghetti dinner at the community center the night before and ending with a chicken dinner at the park after the race.

Another thing we love about this run is that we can park our RV half a block from the start and finish line. Talk about convenient! This past November we took two of our grandkids along to cheer on Bampa.
|Lots to do at the park while waiting.|
