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.

Daylight Savings Time is Here!

That can only mean one thing - time to put up the tights and break out the shorts! It was a bit chilly at the start today but I was positive I could suffer through a few minutes and I was right - things warmed up nicely at Busiek today - we went to Wilson's Creek at 8:00 only to find the trails closed. So we went on over to Busiek. Me, Captain Fun Hog, Jelly, and Chris Bills did a great 9 mile loop, then I hopped on my new Gary Fisher 29er and pedaled for about 30-45 minutes.

THAT is when you REALLY know spring is coming, when the rubber starts to meet the trail... What a perfect day. Now time to go hang out by the pool and get some sun. I'm out all next week - Dallas for business, then Wednesday to Beaver Creek for 3 days of powder - forecast is for snow all three days we are there. Back Sunday. Hold down the fort!
