    What's tougher, Grandfather Mtn or Monkey?

    The Monkey Games


      Grandfather Mountain! Grandfather Mountain!


      And not because of the hills.


      Monkey: nice road.  Occasional car. Might honk and show support.


      GMM: scary skinny shoulder.  Cars, pickups, dump trucks barreling at you at 50 mph. Might honk and flip you off.


      Monkey: Super nice people.


      GMM: race staff that will make you feel uncomfortable, embarrassed, and wondering whether "did that just happen?" was racially motivated. Also will take a chair away from you after the race so that they can... not sit in it.


      Ok then.

        A popsicle will put you in a better mood.


          Never ran Grandfather, but I doubt they'd have vomit all over the finish chute.
