Muddy Trail Run / G'Pa Fun

I had fun with the Trail Nerds last night, (after dark). We ran about 7 miles in the rain on the muddy BuRP trails, with two crossings of the Blue River. By the end of the run, I had enough turf on me to plant alfalfa! The lightning (and main storm front) didn't come through until well after we had finished and by the time we were home.

Since D keeps showing off her beautiful grandson, I thought I'd show off my 4-y.o. G'Son. He's an active little guy that likes doing stuff with his Grandpa, including trailrunning and getting muddy. I guess "little guy" is a relative term. He just turned four, and he's 44-inches tall, already! He is very athletic and has very good balance, for his age. He's a very social kid, too. He's also a real sweetie to most folks, but especially to his grandma, mom, and my dog (and all animals).

He's adorable!! Is that trail shoes he's got on already?????

Ben, aka BadBen said...

When he's not wearing trailrunning shoes, he wears Crocs.
(He prefers to be barefoot, though).
