August Trail Runs: Wits, Queens, Cuckoo’s & Dawgs

August was jam-packed with super fun (crazy) trail races hosted by Pretzel City Sports, Uber endurance Sports, and the Trail Dawgs.  They were all so silly and fun, I’m having a hard time picking my favorite!

Hello Charlie!

May 29th I participated in the Charlie Horse 13.1 Trail Run:

11 Plowville, PA (near Reading)  Charlie Horse Point to Point Trail Half Marathon:
It was a HOT and HUMID for this Pagoda Pacers A. C event.  Despite
that, 267 finishers caked with mud and sweat made their  way to the
spring fed pool at the finish line.

While I came in around the middle of the pack, this was one of my favorite runs to-date.  I had a blast and I made some really great new friends!!

Looks like fun??  Go to www.pretzelcitysports.com for upcoming races!
