Howdy, Howdy, Trail Doggies (or perhaps a Trail Cat if you prefer) Looks like Tuesday is going to be a great evening to slap yer feet on some MoCo single-track. Better yet, after all that foot-slappin’ we’re heading over to Outta the Way Café for Burgers and Brews (Yeah, they got veggie and vegan options) to hear the tales from the recovered Stone Millers and Roasaryvillers. They should be back shakin’ that Lactic Acid outta their legs. Why would you stay home when you can be outside with us? Huh? That settles it then, C U there! But first a reminder: Don’t forget to sign up for Winter Trails before its too late. Its filling up fast. Here is the link https://mcrrc.org/training-programs/winter/winter-trail-program/ OK details for the run: Location: Redland Middle School 6505 Muncaster Mill Road Derwood MD 20855 (Park around back on the right side) Coords: 39.140424, -77.133438 Headlamp: YES!

Saturday Trails with Muddy Shoes is Back! Well, we’re back to normal runs on Saturday for a week or two until Winter Trails starts up in December. Yeah, Baby! This week we’re going back to one of old trails far from the Stone Mill course. Meadowside! It will be cold for sure (frightened turtle cold!) but don’t over-dress. Common mistake. Its easier to be cold for a small bit than have to drag around those extra garments. Just my two cents. So with out further adieu or blither-blather here are the details: Location: 5100 Meadowside Ln, Rockville, MD 20855 Coords: 39.1133694, -77.106480 Time: 0730 Course: Spring Trail past the Covered Bridge then out-n-back to Bowie Mill Rd and back on Kengla and North Branch Trails Wet Feet: Good chance Distance: Heck if I know! Prolly 10-14 miles – ish OK, C U there! Muddy Shoes
