This Round Is On Me!

The question is "What's on tap?"  Tonight is the first night of "Happy Trails Happy Hour!"
A group of runners - new to the trails and experienced- are joining up at a local park to take on some trails.  It is a beautiful day here in MN - the sun is shining, the temps are in the low 20s, and fresh snow is on the ground.  Perfect reason to gather for a happy hour! I can't wait to see everyone adorned with headlamps and tripping running gracefully through the slosh!  I am pretty familiar with the trails because I run them 3-4 times a week.  But for most it will be a blind run- which I think is kind of fun (and maybe a little funny!)  The beverages FOLLOW the run which is good because otherwise we might not find our way out of the woods!

Tonight's beverage - hot cocoa with a shot of this

or this!


  1. Hahaha that will warm y'all up quick after your run! Crazy asses, I cry when it's in the 40's here and sunny!

  2. That sounds really fun! Count me in next time I'm in MN!

  3. Hope you had fun with this! Ah, MN. I really loved my visit to MN a few weeks ago...I'm trying to see if you have where abouts your from in MN and I'd probably know this if I was better about reading blogs these days. My best friend Jenn (met her through her running blog several years ago) is in MN and we met up in Minneapolis (6 hour drive for her). Loved the cold crisp feeling.

  4. This sounds awesome! I'm jealous I live so far away or I would have crashed your party and joined you on the trails!!!! I love trails! The weather is supposed to be beautiful even up here in the boondocks this week! Yay! And I'm Amanda's friend from Minnesota:)

    1. Where do you live? I am heading to Brainerd in a couple of weeks for a gilrs" weekend!

  5. Hope you had fun!! I am AWFUL at running trails, I get so nervous about falling...gotta get over that because it looks like so much fun. Have a fab weekend :)
