Ya’ll heard of that hot bikram yoga they do? Well, tonight will be the trail running version of that. But, there will be no yoga mats, no Lululemon yoga pants, no down dog or sleeping lotus flower poses ( I made that lotus flower one up!) and no Namaste! Just dirt, roots and rocks. What more do you need? Well, OK we need cooler temps but they are on the way! In the meantime, we’ll be out there clicking off the miles. Now, on the serious side, this type of weather is not to be messed with. Everyone should dial it back a little this evening, hydrate all day and maybe do a little less than you normally would. Just sayin’!
In the meantime, details, details:
