Welcome to August! Those chilly Fall and Winter temps are right around the corner. Well…maybe not so much…
Anyway, as usual we are hitting the trails around Lake Needwood this evening! Woot! Woot! Be prepared for the usual H&H. Hydrate throughout the day, bring water and make sure your electrolytes are in balance. We’ll see you there!
Couple of announcement things:
- People have been asking if we will continue our Saturday runs (Muddy Shoes Summer Trail Series) now that the Fat Ass is done. The answer is “YES!” Keep an eye out for the weekly announcements but we will do them every Saturday up to October when we (Muddy Shoes) host the Stone Mill 50 Miler Course Preview Runs and the Phantastic Phall Phat Ass (Yay, Robin!)
- Mark your trail running calendars for the Groovin’ Woodstock 7K XC race on 14 August. Here’s the link to sign up to run or volunteer. https://mcrrc.org/calendar…/groovin-woodstock-7k-xc-2022/Our one and only Coach Gretchen presides as the Race Director for this one. It’s a throwback to the 60’s!
