Hey Trail Dogs, Mud Slappers and Winter Trail Peeps
Welcome to the first Tuesday evening trail run of December 2023! Also, Welcome to any Winter Trail peeps who might be joining us for the first time (remember your headlamp!).
It looks like some fine weather out there this evening, mild temps, no precip and no wind. Why not take advantage of it and take a little night trot through the forests of Derwood with your best trail buds! For any newbies, yes, we run in the woods at night in the dark. Sounds crazy but it’s actually a blast. Much safer than running in the daylight when you have a million and one visual distractions to take your eyes off the trail. You just slow down a bit and follow your cone of light. Don’t knock it ‘til ya tried it! Just make sure to bring a headlamp or equivalent. Plus, you get to spend more time on dirt rather than pavement. Hope to C U all out there!
OK, announcements, then details:
