It Ain't About The Running - Drool Deer 2016

Revival with CCR
Camp Chestnut Ridge Trail Runs is one of those small, local races that I have grown to love so much over the past few years. It's a race packed with good cheer, good people, great food, great trails, and an awesome atmosphere. And yet in its fifth year, it ...

Ravens and Writing Desks
"Why is a raven like a writing desk?" asked the Mad Hatter in the book Alice's Adventures in Wonderland . Much like the Mad Hatter, I have no idea. Why that question floated through my mind as I stumbled down the trail during the Raven Rock Trail Races is a...
