Hey Trail Slappers, Dirt Mongers and Forest Joggers! (I think that’s everybody!)

So, here we go again with a wonderful Fall day/night to be out on the trails of MoCo! Where else would you rather be on a Tuesday? Home with crazy family (Kids! Homework! Dishes! Chores! Meltdowns!) Doing extra after-hours s#@t for work for a thankless boss? (I think not!) Watching Netflix re-runs (booorriinng!) What you need is a good romp in the woods with your headlamp and trail friends! Ya just gotta make it happen. And Muddy Shoes will be there to support! Not only will we run but we’ll head over to the Outta the Way Café afterwards for a comfy and delicious post-run chow and mingle! What could be better? (Don’t answer that!) So, we’ll see you there and I’ll save you a spot on the trail!

But first, 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. BTW, our cups will be featured at the Stone Mill 50 Race which is going semi-cupless. Pick yours up at packet pick up!

Donations! –Thanks to recent donations we were able to purchase a brush cutting attachment for the Muddy Shoes weed-wacker. Keep the donations coming. Muchly 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 two are in the books. Each remaining Saturday in October (21st and 28th) 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! Sign up here – https://www.signupgenius.com/…/20F0C4DABAB2DA64…
