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.

Nerds Like the Wet Stuff Too...

What an adventure! The 'Energizer Bunny' and I went out to Busiek this morning - at first it looked like a complete wash out - 2 of the three bridges we use to cross the creek were washed out from last week's floods. But we found the 3rd intact which opened up the south and east sections of area for us to run. We'd normally wade across, but this morning Woods Fork was a TORRENT. Light rain, a little thunder, and water logged trails did not stop us from getting in about 2 hours - however at one point we had to refer back to my GPS watch to get us back to the car... A little adventure on every trip.
