Hey Forest Joggers,

I know it’s only Monday but another Tuesday is coming our way. Time to hit the single track in the Forests of Derwood! For the second week in a row, I will be out of town (At the beach!) so you will have to blow your own imaginary gym teacher whistle and draw straws to see who gets to yell out “THESE TRAILS AIN’T GONNA RUN THEMSELVES!” You just gotta figure out who among you is the biggest loudmouth! No shortage of contenders there!

Also, please look out for each other and make sure everyone gets back safely.

OK, announcements, then details:

Merch! Merch! Merch! – get it while it lasts! We got Muddy Shoes Baseball Hats ($15), Buffs ($10) and Reusable, collapsible cups ($5). Do your holiday shopping early…or just treat yourself! See Coach Phil or Coach Mike C.

Donations! –Thanks to recent donations we were able to purchase a brush cutting attachment for the Muddy Shoes weed-wacker. Keep the donations coming. Much appreciated! Paypal – pepstein1@verizon.net

Events – We have a big October/ November planned. In association with The Stone Mill 50 race, Muddy Shoes sponsors the ever-popular Stone Mill Course Preview runs. The 1st one was held last Saturday and previewed the top part of the course. Each remaining Saturday in October (14th, 21st28th) we will hold a run that will preview the remaining parts of the Stone Mill course. Each run is an out-and-back on a section of the course ranging in distance from ~18-22 miles. You don’t have to be signed up for the race to join us. Come on out and just do a few miles. All are welcome. We ask folks to provide a donation to help with costs.

Phall Phat Ass – Continuing the tradition started by Coach Robin we hold the Phall Phat ass Trail Half Marathon and 10k the Saturday before Stone Mill. Great taper run!
