Tuesday Trails @ Needwood (No umbrella needed)

Thats right, Trail Hounds, no umbrella needed for our weekly jaunt around the awesome trails of Lake Needwood this evening. Oh, make no mistake, it will be damp out there. Mere mortals will probably retreat to the relative safety of the umbrella and galoshes but we, my friends are not mere mortals. We are trail runners! Kinda like superheros, in a sense. Well, ok, maybe calling ourselves ‘superheros’ is a stretch but we are definitely bad-ass. Especially if you run in the rain. Like I always have said to my runners “The More Crap You Run Through, the Less Crap Will Affect You” I know some of you roll your eyes eveytime I say that but its true. Adversity makes you tough. So on that note….here are the super details for tonight:

Location: 15679 Needwood Lake Cir, Derwood, MD GPS Coordinates: 39.114637, -77.127564

Time: 6:30 (6:15 for warm-up)

Course: We will run around the lake clockwise going out across the dam onto Pa Parilla Path, up and across Needwood Causeway, out’n’back on the Beaver Tale Trail, and back down the otherside for hill repeats on Potty Hill. Kapeesh?

Announcements:

* Check out our Muddy Shoes merch! We got Hats ($15), Buffs ($10) and magnets ($1). They are going fast! Get yours from Robin (Hats), Phil (Hats, Buffs, Magnets) or Mike Chau (Buffs). US Dollars only!

* Got Summer running plans? Well, we’ll be kicking off the Muddy Shoes Summer 25/50k Training Program in May again (after Farm Park Challenge). Its low-key but awesome! Target race is the MD HEAT 25/50k in August. Stay tuned for details coming your way.

* Mark Calendars for our 3rd Annual Summer Bobwhite Fat Ass Trail Festival @ Seneca Lake on Saturday July 21st! We’ll havew various distances and a whole bunch of great chow and bevs at the end. Don’t miss it!

OK, C U at Needwood!
Cheers,

Outta the Way Tuesday Trails @ Needwood

Outta the Way Tuesday Trails @ Needwood

 

Well, Guess we still have another cool one tonight. My take on it? Enjoy it while it lasts. Come July and August we’ll be reminiscing and yearning for these lower temps. So, no whining.

Think its time to converge on the Outta the Way Cafe tonight for some refuel and recharge activity after our Tuesay jaunt around the shores of Lake Needwood. We’ll put in some miles, get hungry and head over there after the run tonight. Yum!

Spring Sprung Trail Run – Needwood

I’m confused! We had the Equinox. The Druids have gone home. The daffodils are almost done and its still feels like Winter. Not that I mind that. More potential for mud! Thats what why we do this. Let me here ya say ‘Yeah’! <sound of crickets> OK, well, speakin’ for myself then. BUT, Tuesday are trail days and we will run regardless. We have packed our headlamps away and moved venues to Needwood. Time to re-explore Parilla Path , Blue Jay Loop, Troll Trail and the infamous Beaver Tale Trail. So strap on those stinkin’ trailies and lets have a go.

Details, details:
