Lost in the Lost Pines Trail Run

I registered for the Lost in the Lost Pines trail run today. The web site describes the run as five miles of “rough terrain” and says to “Be prepared for sand, roots, rough patches, steep hills and steep downhills!”

Ha! That sounds awesome, doesn’t it? In my imagination, the air is cool and crisp and smells like pine trees and apple cider. But maybe that’s the Pennsylvania girl in me.

If you want to come play in the woods with us on October 25, you can find more information about the run here — and register online here. We can carpool and then go somewhere to eat a big pile of un-Zone-friendly pancakes afterward.
