Well, folks, I vote for getting muddy out in the woods Tuesday night. Just like we always do. Come join us, after you cast your vote, for a bi-partisan night on the trails. Guaranteed to be no mention of politics. The most divisive issue we will face is whether to do the Upper or Lower… Continue reading Election Day Evening Trail Run @ Redland M.S.
Yo Stone Millers, Gonna see who is tough this weekend. Weather folks are forecasting a bit of ducky weather…chilly, rainy and raw. Hmm…I know some ducks that might opt to stay home in the warmth of their humble homes getting weaker…and weaker. Whereas you bad-asses will be out tackling the Stone Mill Course Preview #3!… Continue reading Stone Mill 50 Mile Course Preview Run #3 – Saturday 27 October
OK, Tree-Smackers, Time is running out for getting some night trail running to prep for starting a race in the dark (i.e. Stone Mill). Running in the woods in the dark with a headlamp takes a little getting used to but it is exhilarating. No one else you know would even think of doing it… Continue reading Tuesday Night Time Trail Run @ Redland M.S.
Hey Stone Millers and Other Assorted Trail Critters, It’s time for #2! Um…not THAT number two…hopefully…although SH*% happens…TMI…but I digress. I’m talking about Stone Mill Course Preview #2! Come on out and get a look-see at what you’ll be facing on race day. Never hurts to get a gander at what is coming your way… Continue reading Stone Mill 50 Miler Course Preview #2 – Saturday October 20th @ Pennyfield Lock
Hey Trail Dogs, The Outta the Way Cafe called. They wonder where we’ve been! So here’s the plan – first we run , then we eat and chitty-chat about…what else…RUNNING! Good night to hear stories about recent accomplishments…Trilogy-West Virginia, Needwood 10K, R2R2R, etc… … So, quick note – anyone who is doing a race… Continue reading Outta the Way Tuesday Evening Trails
Hey Trail Dogs, MoCo trails are open for business and our business is pounding single-track…in the dark! Yowza! BTW, if any of you have an event coming up such as Stone Mill or Devil Dog (the race not the delectable crème-filled devils food cake snack…drool) then you will be starting and possibly finishing your event… Continue reading Tuesday Evening Trails @ Redland – Trails Are Open!
Hey Folks, So, the MoCo trails are supposed to open at Noon today after being closed all week (DO NOT get me started on this!). Even though rain is gone I want to stay out of that jurisdiction this weekend. Sooooooo, we will hit some state trails which have been open all week! This weeks… Continue reading Saturday ‘Muddy Is As Muddy Does’ Trail Run
*Bring headlamp or handheld light* Time to move to Winter quarters, Folks! We’ll also celebrate the end of summer (and good riddance to it!) after the run at the Outta the Way Cafe for a beer/burger. Join us! So as the law has it we can’t be at Needwood after dark and it gets dark… Continue reading Tuesday Night Light Run @ Redland M.S. (New Location!)
Well, Muddy Shoozers, looks like MoCo trails are still still closed this weekend so we will not have an organized run. Sadness, I know, but as good trail stewards we have to abide by the Maryland National Parks and Planning Commission directives whether we agree with them or not. Many races and events have been… Continue reading No Saturday Run – Trails Closed Cuz Mud – Other Options Below
(From Coach Phil) As many of you are aware the MNPPC has issued a closure of all natural surface trails in Montgomery County until further notice. The blanket county-wide trail closures we are experiencing are a policy that I have personally only seen instituted this year, specifically, this summer. I have to believe, and I… Continue reading My thoughts on MNPPC county-wide, comprehensive natural surface trail closures.
