Hey Trail Dogs,

We all need to keep an eye on the sky for today’s jaunt at Lake Needwood. The weather peeps are saying there could be some rough weather in store. That being said, they’ve been wrong before so…Use good judgement to run safely. I know “good trail running judgement” is really an oxymoron but it sounds good on paper! Basically, we don’t run in thunder and lightning. I normally would say that you don’t need to be a rocket scientist to figure that out but…

So, I am quarantining <sigh> and will NOT be there this afternoon so you are on your own. Elect a leader and go forth! Keep an eye on each other and make sure everyone returns safely.

PSA – don’t forget to mark your calendars for the 5th Annual Summer Fat Ass coming your way on Saturday 16 July! Great fun!
