How cool is it when you can get out and enjoy the outdoors when nobody else will? Today was that day for me - 33 degrees and steady rain. Today was not about miles, or heart rate, or time - it was about beating the elements. I chose a mid-weight base layer, lycra tights, a gore-tex shell, and of course a KC Trail Nerd cap. I did one lap a Sac River Trail, and by the end of the loop I was soaked, but warm and my feet would get cold every time they were submersed in water but would warm up after about 20 steps. I knew I could do another lap - so at that moment I knew I had succeeded! So I got in the truck and went home to a warm shower and breakfast.
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.
