It was nice for me to be able to "go back in time" in a sense as I was still doing the same thing I had done all those years ago. Growing up in Alamo was kind of like growing up in a small town, although it really was just part of the huge San Francisco Bay Area and all the suburbs. Coming back "home" to do the run gave me the illusion that the "small town" experience still existed in Danville.
I am hoping that we can keep the race going, but I'm depending on my Danville friends to contact the right people in the community to make that happen. I've contacted race officials from here in Maryland, but to get the race going again, we'll need a local person to do the hard work of meeting city officials and coordinating with other groups. And I have my website dedicated to the Devil Mountain Run, which will be hopefully be useful as well.
