Ran across this page while looking for races my father ran. My father was Norman Beaudet and if I remember right, ran with GAC for many years in the 80s (maybe into the 90s). He was from Lynn, and I don't know how he met the group, but I do know he had the GAC shirt and I think would run with you guys on Sundays. Thanks for giving my dad many years of happiness

Tomorrow morning I begin my long awaited hike on the Appalachian Trail, Springer Mountain Georgia to Mt. Katahdin Maine. I just attended the "kick off" where we held seminars on helpful tips and learned proper trail etiquette. We learned that 1/4 of the 3000 expected to start the hike will finish. Part of me wonders why I am here, while another part is curious to see what I will experience and learn as I try to survive the 2200 miles of rugged mountain terrain. I'd rather not be doing this alone, but then again I guess that's to be part of the experience. So I am inviting you to join me in spirit by following my blog, write comments, and sign up for email progress reports. Access blog at "raymountpsychologist.com" Thanks for your support, Ray "Mount-N-Music" Mount
