Muddy Sunday with Bob

Mud, lots of it

Ann got back from a work trip to China on Saturday morning, so we ran on Sunday. Bob joined us with a 9 mile loop, after which we continued for another 14 miles. I tried out my new Hoka Stinsons for the first time, christening them in some good mud. They were great-- a very similar feel to my usual Brooks Pure Grit and not too squishy as I had feared.

Ann and Bob, glowing
It wasn't too rainy while we were running, but everything was sodden from hard rain the night before, and some of the creeks were higher than we could remember seeing them. It's always fascinating to see the trails we know so change with the seasons and weather.

This was a nice loop-- nothing too mean after missing Ann for a long week!
