The Turd Annual SHITR

The Most Wonderful Day of the year is quickly approaching, that’s right The Turd Annual SHITR.  The 2015 run will be held on January 10th, with a 5 pm start time, as in past years, the course will start at the Weldon Springs Mound, and you will be running on the Lost Valley Trails.  There may or may not be a mystery event, you will have to show up to find out.  

This year we even have some sponsors on board, Mountain Khaki's, Vroom Foods, XX2i Optics and Zanfel have donated some great schwag to the event!  There may or may not be other surprises… Be sure to come and find out. 

The SHITR is also the final event on the Tortured Soles tour, so we will be joined by a slew of SHITR virgins. 

If you haven’t already signed up, please go join our FB group and sign up by clicking the “GOING” button.  We also need a count of how many will be joining us at the Mexican restaurant after the event.

Thunder Rolls 24 hr - 2014 Edition

For the 2014 edition of Thunder Rolls adventure race Robin and I had planned on getting back together after being healed of all the injuries that plagued us this year.  Fate, however, had different plans for us.  Robin had pre-scheduled and unavoidable Mom duties for the weekend, so she had to opt out this year.  Bummer.  The Thunder Rolls 24hr is one of our favorite races.  But luckily a three person team was quickly assembled with Keith Timmins, SuperKate and Me!  

Also, lucky for me (And you!) SuperKate is an outstanding race report writer.  So instead of struggling to read through another one of my reports, you can look at a couple of my favorite pictures from the race, then click to read Kate’s awesome report here!
Keith leading the way up a very overgrown reentrant.  Of course he's smiling, cause we're adventure racing!
Kate modeling a great collection of beggar-lice.  Of course she's smiling, cause we're adventure racing!
