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 defin…itely 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?
