Snow + dirt + 50 degrees = SHOE SUCKING MUD

[Giggle] Played in the mud today.

Ran downhill in the mud, ran uphill in the mud. Ran sideways on mud. And busted my ass.

Jumped over a particularly large puddle and landed in the mud. And the mud ATE MY SHOES. BOTH OF THEM. I literally came out of my shoes. And walked uphill in muddy socks. Had to sit down to remove a handful of razor sharp *burrs* before I could put my muddy socks in my muddy shoes. And mud is HEAVY y'all.

And then we crossed a crystal clear creek. THREE times. Which is why in this picture, my shoes look partly clean on top.

There were two best parts. The sun poked out right before the hash started and I didn't have to wear gloves for the first time since, like, November.

And even better...there were I dunno...12 people at the run today. And I was the second YOUNGEST ONE THERE. Or all but one was older than I.

Fountain of youth, my friends.

Playing outside.

Find the time.

At some point doesn't it get hard to run, what with all the beer and such?

Well, not usually. The running is first, mostly. And on Sundays, it's less of a drinking club with a running problem and moreso a true running club. The trails are usually more than 3-4 miles long and include some challenging terrain [e.g. all off road, alternating shoe sucking mud/creek crossings] I know it's been a good run when I get home and have shiggy (branches, leaves, bugs) in my hair as well as in my shoes.

In true hasher form however, when folks come out on the their porches, as they inevitably do, to find out what all the racket is about [whistles, shouts of "on-on", "R-U?"] and ask, "Why are you running?"...the only acceptable response is, "For BEER!". :)

Don't you just hate soiling a new pair of white shoes? No matter what you do, they will always have a brown tint.
