G’Morning, Tree Slappers!

OK, lets try this again…everyone, at the top of your lungs, as loud as you can, go outside and yell ‘SPRING IS HERE! WINTER BE GONE!’ There that oughta do it! Well, at least that’ll wake yer neighbors up. But, here we are! First weekend of Spring. Still some snow in the shadier spots but plenty-o-mud to go around (yes, I’ll share!). Time to shake the Winter cobwebs outta yer boots and back on it! Listen up!

Course: Greenway North to Damascus
Mileage: 14 round trip – good taper distance
Justification: Huh? Seriously!

No sense wasting all that! So lets make lemons out of lemonade and run! Don’t let that training go to waste! We can still go out and burn those quads, flex those flexors and play in the woods. And what the heck, let yer hormones rage a lil’ bit! Probably good for ya.
