YESTERDAY A FEW FOLKS WENT UP TO  THE CROOM FOREST TRAILS NEAR BROOKSVILLE FL TO DO THE FOOL’S RUN. WE ALL WENT  FOR THE DIAPER DASH  1 LAP 16 MILER. THERE WAS ALSO A 50K AND A 50 MILER. NO FOOLING.

THE LYRELEAF SAGE WAS IN FULL BLOOM AND TEMPS WERE GOOD.  A HUGE COOPER’S HAWK GAVE ME A GREAT FLY BY ON A REAL BEAUTIFUL PART OF THE TRAIL.  AN ABSOLUTE HIGHLIGHT OF THE DAY WAS THE OUTSTANDING AID STATIONS HOSTED BY FRIEND OF THE TRAIL AND APPARENT SKYDIVER  MICHEAL D DAVIS. HERE IS HIS PICTURE  AND EXAMPLES OF TRAIL AID FOR THOSE WHO RUN TO EAT. I DID NOT TAKE A PIC  OF HIS TABLES SO THE SUSPENSE WILL GET YOU TO HIT UP AN EVENT  HE SUPPORTS AND TRY HIS MENU. IT WAS HOME BAKED, ORGANIC, REGULAR AND GLUTEN FREE, AND INCLUDED MOST OF THE ABOVE AND MORE.  SO GENEROUS AND  DELICIOUS. COME ON NOW !!!-BAKE ALL WEEK AND STAY OUT IN THE SUN FOR 12 HOURS TO HAND IT OUT BECAUSE YOU ARE A NICE GUY ? WHAT A GENEROUS SOUL.

OUR BRADENTON RUNNER’S  CREW WAS JOHNNY I, MICHELE V, LLOYD E, BARB, NAN THE STORK AND BROCK.  NADEEN M ALSO MADE AN APPEARANCE AS WELL BUT SHE WAS HARD TO FIND IN THE WOODS RUNNING EXTRA CREDIT SO HERE IS AN OLD PIC WITH HER BELOVED TAKEN  8 YEARS AGO WHEN WE WERE LIVING  IN CHICAGO.

WE ALL LOOK  PRETTY DECENT SINCE THERE WAS ACTUALLY A SHOWER AVAILABLE. IT DOESN’T GET BETTER THAN THAT. ANOTHER PERSONAL HIGHLIGHT OF THE DAY WAS THE RARE POLKA DOT ROCKS FOUND ONLY IN CERTAIN REGIONS OF THE WITHALOCOOCHEE FOREST.  I ALSO THRILLED TO LEARN MUGS WERE BEING PASSED OUT AT THE FINISH.  THE 2014 HAD ME FOOLED AS  2019 FOR A FEW HOURS. WHEN YOU COME OVER FOR A TEA OR COFFEE GO ALONG WITH THE RUSE AND BE VERY IMPRESSED WITH THIS NEW ADDITION TO THE HOUSEHOLD BRAGGING KITCHENWARE. WE CAN  ALSO SPIN AROUND THE BLOCK IN OUR  2014 MINIVAN AND TURN ON SOME TUNES.

2014 TOP TUNE

HOPE YOUR PLANS INCLUDE SOME SPRING FLOWERS, FRESH AIR , GREAT FRIENDS AND HEALTHY SNACKS.

AS BUFFALO BILL WISELY SAID :

I COULD NEVER RESIST THE CALL OF THE TRAIL

 GET YOUR DIRT ON, LOVE TO ALL.
