Cougar Run

Reaves, Bain, and I are planning to do a long run at Greenbelt Park on Sunday at 10.

Some of you may remember this run from August, when Reaves introduced us to his favorite college stomping grounds - a place where he learned to live in harmony with the Cougar. Unfortunately for our friend Jarrin, the Cougar was on the prowl and looking to strike. After that eventful run, a survelince video from the Univ. of Maryland caught the Cougar on tape, where it was determined to be nothing more than a large ferral cat.

All are welcome to join us Sunday morning for this long run. It consists of several loops of a 6 mile trail so everyone can trim or extend this run as necessary. Here are directions to the parking lot where we will meet.

Reaves, why did you assume a cougar of all creatures? Are you into older women? :p

This is where the cat was first identified as a cougar:

This was a great run. It was so hot & humid, we stopped for gatorade after each 6 mile loop, 3 stops in all.

I am working tomorrow at noon so will not be able to make it. I'm doing a 60min run from c&o mile marker/lock 5 at 8am if anyone else needs to run early.

Wow...memories. That was indeed an awesome run; albeit a destroyed knee/hip and partially tearing my plantar off it's foundation. I'll be there in spirit!

I came back yesterday, so ill be there, but two loops is enough for me...

Neal said...

how is the footing? debating coming, but battling a left ankle that keeps rolling on softer terrain.

I'll be good for 9-10.

This may be too late for you to decide, Neal, but the footing is generally good for a trail. That said, a trail is a trail. It's probably similar to some of the Archibold Glover Park trails or slightly better.

Thanks for the info. I'll stick to the roads for another week.
