Muddy Trail Run
Six of us showed up at WyCo Park for a trail run, last night. It had rained 1-inch the day before, so we knew we were in for a muddy run in a few spots on the trail. We were right. I was leading, and on some of the steeper uphills, there was a rooster-tail of mud coming off of my shoes. Poor Kyle was right behind me and taking it in the face. (I actually got some mud on the top of my own head).
We finished one 5-mile loop and decided not to go out for another. We ran about a 1-1/2 mile loop on the pavement by the marina to finish our run, and to clean/stomp some of the mud off of our shoes. At least pavement is good for something!
I drove home wearing sandals and sitting on a 55-gallon garbage bag. I was so muddy that I had to undress in the shower.
I love playing in the mud!!!
