It’s Two for Tuesday on the trails of Redland. Of course. We only have two trails in Redland – the Upper and the Lower Trail. Love them both. I used the official Muddy Shoes weed-whacker to give them a manicure and haircut yesterday so we are good to go! Weather will be scrumptious…like a pumpkin spiced latte…actually I find those gross but that’s just me. Anyway, bring a headlamp. Its dark in them thar woods. There are some chicken-Of-The-Woods mushrooms blooming in great quantity on the trail. Bring a baggie if you want to take some home. I’ll point them out to anyone who is interested. Yum.

Hey Stone Millers and other assorted and sundry Trail Dogs and Tree Slappers,

Throughout the Saturdays of October we will convene at various trailheads and run sections of the course itself. These runs are brought to you by My Muddy Shoes (Applause! Applause!) the local MoCo trail group. This year, of course, Stone Mill 50 turns 10! Congrats to Race Director Extroadinaire, Sir Barry Hauptman (Much louder applause and some shouting!). It is also the RRCA Regional 50 Miler Championship Race! Amazing recognition!

Anyway, we will provide post-run nom-nomsas well as water out on the trail. We don’t charge anything (Free!) but donations are readily and happily 🙂 accepted. That keeps us holding runs through out the year. We will also have Muddy Merch for sale (Pssst, holidays are coming!) Hats, Buffs and magnets. U.S. Dollars only!
