“All I see are clouds, surrounded by clouds.”

This is a line penned by the great Warren Haynes, from the rock band Gov’t Mule’s song “Life Before Insanity.” It’s an aptly named song for these profoundly uncertain times.

If you are a regular road race participant, “clouds, surrounded by clouds” are all you tend to see as news of race cancellations seem to be coming at us, rapid fire, each and every week. Earlier this month, it was the inevitable announcement that the Dutchess County Classic would be moving to a virtual-only format for 2020.

For the first time since its inception as the Dutchess County Marathon way back in 1979, there will be no on-ground Dutchess County Classic in September. And that’s a bummer. The Classic has always been a true rite of passage from the summer to the fall.
