Atwater Once Again

Well for an impromptu venue, the Atwater did leave something to be desired! As some of you long-time DTRWers know, we’ve tried to give the restaurants in that area out business for quite some time. However, this time we knew what to expect in terms of service! Although there was a minimum of staff in the entire place to serve our huge group, the minimal price on drinks made up for the lengthy wait in some cases!
The route that Tom Gromak laid out was a hit to everyone. There was a stretch on Atwater that still needs improvements but once you get to the new Riverwalk you forget about it. Some of the over-achievers in the group even continued on the Riverwalk towards Belle Isle for a little more mileage.
I want to send out a DTRW ‘We’re sorry’ to Ellie. Ellie was making her first appearance with the group and things didn’t go very well for her. Ellie twisted her ankle on Atwater, even before we got to the river and wasn’t able to run as well as normal. Then upon returning to the Atwater she was part of a small fender bender.
A big welcome back to the group for some of the members that have been away for quite some time, you know who you are. Did you notice those Great Lakes Relay people off the side and wanting to be alone? We’ll hear some stories from them in a few weeks.
