The Virginia Happy Trails Running Club puts on several excellent training runs for the Massanutten Mountain Trails 100 race held in May. The Martin Luther King weekend was the first of the fat ass events. It was a warm, cold, sunny, snowy, foggy weekend to run!
The Virginia Happy Trails Running Club puts on a ton of Fat Ass events – runs with no entry fee, no awards, and no wimps – and the best volunteers and aid stations you’ll find anywhere. This year was all about the VHTRC for me – I ran or volunteered at as many of our events as I could. I ended up with a lot of miles, a lot of smiles, the support and love of my tribe, familiar trails to come home to, new trails to play on, new friends to share trail with and new adventures planned for 2016. Life is good.
Here’s a look back on my year of the Fat Ass! Happy, happy trails!

The Virginia Happy Trails Fourth of July Trifecta continues…
An epic weekend – three days of playing on the mountain trails of the Shenandoahs. Here are a few of the sights!
This spring I’ve had the privilege to spend a lot of time on trail pacing friends in their events. It’s been fun and so very rewarding to watch them finish goal races – with smiles all around.
The Wild Oak Trail is my very favorite trail. The way she wears winter is magical.
A wonderfully wintery day on the TWOT trail. 28 miles, 8100 feet of climbing…happy, happy trails.
A VHTRC Fat Ass run on Black Friday every year. This year was a blue sky, sunshine, SNOWY adventure.
