What is a Trail Nerd?

A trail nerd is a runner who loathes the pavement, does not let a little bad weather stop them, does not whine, and is always ready to help a fellow trail runner. They originate from Kansas City, then like little seeds, propogate in other areas. Wanna be a nerd? Just join one of our group runs.

Trail Nerds Take Over the Ozarks!

The insurgency was short and sweet. The KC Trail Nerds have always talked about conquering the world. They thought they were invincible. But deep in the back of their mind, they always wondered 'what if we fail?' So they came up with a plan. Let's start small. REALLY small. Let's first entrench ourselves in SW Missouri. Maybe if we could do that, then we might be able to develop a beach head and then, say, take on NW Arkansas.

So as we wind down the year, with short days, and turkey and dressing on the mind, a local trail runner Bruce 'The Juice' has already planted a seed. The goal is to develop a series of runs through the winter of '07 / '08 that will become a gathering spot for all other 'nerds' who currently have no other way to associate with people, except to run trails with them.

Stay tuned for upcoming runs and events. And check out: http://kctrailnerds.blogspot.com/

You didn't mention the Yogurt class. Oh, I guess that's a totally different blog. Sorry. I'm new at this blogging thing. In fact I was a blogging virgin until now. Thanks Juice.
