Maybe Martha the Mud Godess would agree that Mudness is Goodness… but who the heck is Martha? And what does she know about mud? Well, I know a little about mud and based on recent weather and the forecast (like the weathermen actually know what the weather is going to be) there will be a good possibility that we will be stepping in some mud today…puddles too! For many of us this is a pure trail delight. Splish-splashin’ t…hrough the woods getting all wet and grimy. My Mom used to yell at me for that. Now its called ‘exercise’. Wow, things have changed! Any-hoo, there will be an uptick in the temps and humidity today but its all good cuz we need to acclimate ahead of the real DC Summer weather. Just gotta tough it out to get tougher! So we run…
