Hey Trail Doggies,

Just to put this out there before I get to the running part, today is Outta-The-Way Tuesday! Time for our monthly sojourn to our favorite post-run watering hole and carb-reload facility, The Outta The Way Café. As many of you know, whenever we go, we get the best service (Thanks, Catherine!), great food and a most awesome vibe. As sweaty and muddy as we are, they still let us in. It is a Muddy Shoes home away from home.

OK, what was I here to talk about? Oh, trail running. Of course.

So, we got some splendid conditions. Temps are not expected to break 80! Maybe a small shower but well-below average heat we usually are suffering through in August. Take advantage of it!
