The Year of the Fat Ass

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!
