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.

Who would of thought we'd be in tights and fleece in April? Ben, Frank, Jodie and I enjoyed a few periods of spitting snow / sleet on a pretty wet trail at Sac River this morning. Lots of mud holes, but not too bad. Once we were done there I went on over to Ritter for a short loop - ran into a man with 3 dogs. One of them was bounding full speed for me when he yelled 'don;t worry, she won;t bite!'. So I stood still and the black dog just barked a rabid, mean bark. She did not bite, but I was ready to kick some doggie tail if I had to... Found a cable strung bridge at Ritter, wish I had my phone to get a photo. 1 Week to Ouachita 50. Send Captain and I some positive vibes!
