Tuesday Evening Trails @ Redland and Outta the Way Cafe

Howdy, Howdy, Trail Doggies (or perhaps a Trail Cat if you prefer) Looks like Tuesday is going to be a great evening to slap yer feet on some MoCo single-track. Better yet, after all that foot-slappin’ we’re heading over to Outta the Way Café for Burgers and Brews (Yeah, they got veggie and vegan options) to hear the tales from the recovered Stone Millers and Roasaryvillers. They should be back shakin’ that Lactic Acid outta their legs. Why would you stay home when you can be outside with us? Huh? That settles it then, C U there! But first a reminder: Don’t forget to sign up for Winter Trails before its too late. Its filling up fast. Here is the link https://mcrrc.org/training-programs/winter/winter-trail-program/ OK details for the run: Location: Redland Middle School 6505 Muncaster Mill Road Derwood MD 20855 (Park around back on the right side) Coords: 39.140424, -77.133438 Headlamp: YES!

Saturday Trails with Muddy Shoes is Back!

Saturday Trails with Muddy Shoes is Back! Well, we’re back to normal runs on Saturday for a week or two until Winter Trails starts up in December. Yeah, Baby! This week we’re going back to one of old trails far from the Stone Mill course. Meadowside! It will be cold for sure (frightened turtle cold!) but don’t over-dress. Common mistake. Its easier to be cold for a small bit than have to drag around those extra garments. Just my two cents. So with out further adieu or blither-blather here are the details: Location: 5100 Meadowside Ln, Rockville, MD 20855 Coords: 39.1133694, -77.106480 Time: 0730 Course: Spring Trail past the Covered Bridge then out-n-back to Bowie Mill Rd and back on Kengla and North Branch Trails Wet Feet: Good chance Distance: Heck if I know! Prolly 10-14 miles – ish OK, C U there! Muddy Shoes

Tuesday Evening Trails @ Redland

Tuesday Evening Trails @ Redland

YOWSA! What a difference a day makes! Ran in a short sleeve today but tomorrow I won’t have sleeves long enough! Mother Nature is spreading her generosity our way and slapping us with some rain/snow/sleet/cold/wet etc…even have to deal with all that in the darkness. But ya know what? These adverse condition runs tend to be epic. And I mean epic in a good way. And, heck, we haven’t lost a runner yet!

BTW, speaking of safety, don’t wear white this time of year in the woods. Hunters can easily mistake you for a deer and you don’t want to end up mounted over some dudes fireplace!

Hey, did I tell you we are resuming our Saturday Long Runs this weekend. We’ll be doing those until Winter Trails kicks in. Stay tuned!

OK, C U Truly Bad-Ass Trails Hounds tomorrow! Details:

Tuesday Evening Trails @ on the Trails of Redland!

Tuesday Evening Trails @ on the Trails of Redland!

Well, after that awesome Phall Phat Ass Robin honchoed yesterday it will be great to re-visit part of the course. The down side is that there were reports of vagrant dinosaurs on the trail. Hope we won’t run into T-Rex out there but if you do make sure you are running with someone slower so they get eaten! Actually, I believe it might have gone into hibernation. We should be OK.
