GUL brings it and finishes in front of 306 other runners!!

Hey Spuds, GUL was in fine form today, running 7 .3 miles of trail through mud,
ice, snow and rain through some woods near Reading with 700 other maniacs. I asked him how he did and he replied.." I ran like a F*&#n bolt of lightning".

True to form, UL finished like a spud even though he had boo boo belly after eating too many cola gummies before the race....

Nice Run Spud !!

Uncle Larrys Ugly Mudder

Ok Spuds, Uncle Larry has entered another Run event and this one seems to be quite similiar to the Punk Bike Enduro...lots of people and i think beer stops. So far its UL, his brother Jeff, and Friend Jim, a top secret spud ringer enduro beer meister master recruit.

The event is this upcoming Sunday and heres a little clip from pretzelcitysports.com
Check it out:

“UGLY MUDDER”

7.25 MILE TRAIL RUN, READING, PA
SUNDAY, FEB 22, 2009 11 A.M. NO ENTRY LIMIT
(returning to its traditional date-last Sunday in Feb)
Trail Treaders and Road Warriors;

1) So far, an alarming 440+ folks have been granted passes from the places in which they are institutionalized to attend next Sunday's Ugly Mudder Trail Run. A crowd of between 650-700 waifs and wanderers is expected. If you do not register in advance, you potentially run the same fate as the unexpectedly large walkup crowd at last month's Chilly Cheeks, where we ran out of small, medium and XL before all had been registered. Don't miss these 7.25 miles of trails that are now getting spongy from the snow that was on them, followed by 45 degree days. At least 2 boulder fields are in this event as well (virtually the entire course is different from the Chilly Cheeks) so running in either spikes or high heels is not recommended. AND, because of a slight course change we made over the last two years, there will be TWO water stops that also feature alternative, grain based refreshments and we're NOT talking about runny oatmeal.
This event, normally the 2nd largest rustic trail run in the U.S., crosses Rocks & Roots, Leaves & Leeches, Mud & Muck and Hill & Dale (while "Dale" remains fine , we lost "Chip" in '07 while tragically attempting a road crossing). This kinda tuff trek takes you thru the woods of Mt Penn, under Rdg's famous Pagoda and up a taxing finish thru one of the boldest boulder fields in Berks! These are the trails that are TOO UGLY to be put into Rdg's other trail runs, with ugly footing, ugly climbs, ugly conditions and volunteers that, while not all that attractive either, have "great personalities!" The post race party is already legendary; with a hot breakfast, a not-as-hot band, cold European suds available at almost outlet prices & all the other wacky offerings you've come to expect from Pretzel City Sports. LEGAL - EEZE: You race at your own risk; you alone are responsible for your welfare at all times!! A piece of pasta with love handles couldn’t get thru most of these trails, let alone an ATV, so if you get dinged, please crawl to a point where you can hitch a ride back to the start with your one remaining hand. We will have an EMS crew there but their truck is "warm" and our course is "cold" so where do you think they're going to spend their time??!! While this is a "run in the park", it's no "walk in the park" As such, we only let you in if you are 1)18 or older (16 or 17 yr olds may run with a parent present-no exceptions)
2) comfortable with the term "did someone step on a duck" and 3) know the difference between a "30 yr old wine" and a "30 yr old whiner"; free to bring us the "former", leave the "later" at home.

Demons


Hey Spuds, Came back in from my run this evening with a new outlook on things.
I think i have a little demonic spud running around in my brain. What else would compell me to go out nite after nite and run 3 1/2 miles on the dark streets in the rain/sleet and snow?
Call it pride, competition, or just the fact that we Spuds have a target up our ass; it just makes me want to work harder..
Spud On!!!

Pre-SuperBowl Ride

Hey Spuds,
I am heading out around noon-1 oclock on the cross bike for 2 hours of nice slow roads. The weather is suppose to be in low 40's so it should not be too bad. Interested? Post or call my cell
