Will He or Won't He??

It's Groundhog Day!  What will Phil forecast this year??

If you are around western Pa some time, (like running the Groundhog 50K) you have to check out

Punxsutawney and Gobbler's Knob. 

 This is where Phil makes his appearance and tells us if it is six more weeks of winter, or not!!

It's not so busy, or crowded, in the fall.  Lots more greenery too~!

 Yes, I have met the famous Phil!  At the pre-race dinner, before the 50K, Phil & his handler made a special guest appearance.

I have to give a shout out for the Groundhog 50K run. It's my second favorite 50K, behind the YUTC. Runnable course, great hills, cool schwag.  You get a Groundhog Beanie Baby in your schwag bag!
(I've run the race four times, I left one Groundhog at my old place of employment. :(  )

So what did Phil decide?  Early spring (oh please please please please please) or more of the same?

  1. I'm not sure of the legend but I have heard it put in glass half full perspective - when Phil sees his/her shadow, that might mean ONLY 6 more weeks of winter vs. 8 ...
