Do you remember coming home 
from school when you were a kid?

If it was raining, you'd STOMP 
through every puddle you could find!

Now we're all grown up, and we avoid puddles.

Except when we're trail running!

Trail runners step into mud
that threatens to suck off our shoes--
and we finish the race with big grins.

I don't know why.

But I do know that no trail runner 
ever complained to a race director 
that there was "Too much mud"!

The mud continued all the way to this runner's face.  And of course she was smiling!

Runners at the XTERRA Trail Series (MA #2)
had a great time on the course.

Rocky...steep...winding...
(and of course muddy!)
...it was everything a trail runner could ask for!



for putting on this great race!

P.S.  There are more races in this series.
Come join the fun!
