Hi there you crazy Mud Peoples!
It’s been quite a while since I have posted a group trail run for mymuddyshoes and I’m excited to see you all out there! Tomorrow morning we have 10 miles planned on some of my favorite trails in Rock Creek Park. As always you are free to run/walk/job/hike/trot as far or as short as you want. Just note on the sign-in/sign-out sheet that you’ll be out longer if your plan is 10+. There will be water along the trail but always make sure to be prepared with your own food/water and a way to contact someone should you get in trouble.
Here’s the details:
What: 10 mile trail run in Rock Creek Park
Where: Meadowbrook Local Park – Parking Lot: 38.9867, -77.0620
When: 7:30 AM, Saturday Jun 12th
How: https://caltopo.com/m/RJ7P – Rock Creek Park 10 Mile Loop (you can import this map into the Caltopo app on your mobile device)
Why: Trail running is good for your soul.
Hope to see everyone out there!
Happy Winter Trails MuddyShoes Peeps!!!
MCRRC’s Winter Trails program is hosting a Zoom call with Ultrarunner Extraordinaire Michael Wardian this Wednesday, Feb 3, at 7:00 PM. Michael recently won the Quarantine Backyard Ultra (not actually a trail race), running a little over 4 miles an hour for 63 straight hours for a total of 262 miles, and he won the 2017 World Marathon Challenge, running 7 marathons in 7 days on 7 continents with an average time of 2:45:57! As we’re in the middle of winter running, he’ll talk to us about the marathon in that series held in Antarctica! Michael has also participated in Lazarus Lake’s Barkley Marathons. We highly recommend watching the documentary “The Barkley Marathons: The Race That Eats Its Young!” available on Amazon Prime website here — https://barkleymovie.com/
Winter Trails is opening up this opportunity to the first 75 MyMuddyShoes members to sign up at this link –
***Outta the Way Cafe Doing Curbside Takeout>>>
Even with social seperation, self isolation and a rampant handwashing lifestyle that we are all experiencing, we still gotta eat. Local restaurants are really taking a hit. One our our Tuesday night post-run gathering places , The Outta the Way Cafe, is doing curbside takeout. If you’re hungry give ’em a call and get some good grub. They always take good care of us and treat us so well, its time to help them out! http://www.outta.com/
Cheers and stay safe,
Please see our page with updates about our upcoming trail work day –
