Summer Long Run #3 – Seneca Greenway

Okay, Trail Stooges. Remember these guys? Larry, Moe and Curly? WhoopWhoopWhoop! NyukNyukNyuk! What a comedic cast of characters they were. Much like your bad-ass funny selves. One difference I think we smell worse but, hey, its Summer and sweat happens. For some, much more than others and its only June! Either way we are doing 11 miles tomorrow. We’ll hit the Seneca Greenway for an out’n’back from Watkins Mill down to Clopper Road. No creek crossings this week (sadness) but there will be plenty of moisture around from the rain we have had and might get while we run. We’ll have water out on the course too. Fun times for all!

Here are the sweaty details:

Location: Watkins Mill H.S. 39.183741,-77.2181477 10301 Apple Ridge Rd, Gaithersburg, MD 20886
Time: 0730
Course: Seneca Greenway South to Clopper Road and back
Distance: 11-ish
