TEAM SLUG Redeye 50K Trail Run
Team Slug congratulates every “sick
puppy” that braved the cold rain to bring in 2003 by running
the 8th Redeye. Following are some comments about the
- With only two weeks advance notice
30 Slugs participated in the Redeye 50K.
- 21 runners went the entire
distance and the remainder got in some good training that seemed to
average around 20 miles each.
- The weather at the start was
pretty bad – temperatures in the low 40s and pouring rain.
During the day the temperature climbed to around 50 and the rain
stopped for several brief periods, resulting in almost ideal running
- As for the trails – wet,
muddy and slick. Several runners related their experiences with
face plants and butt slides.
- Michele and Jeff were the fastest
Slugs and Lou and Carolyn won the coveted title of Official Slug
(Lou only won the honor because I wasn’t running.).
- One police report…..the old
time Slugs would not like this, they prided themselves in their
ability to use stealth to avoid contact with park rangers.
- Scott proved that it is possible
to observe a full moon at 11:00 a.m. in Northern Virginia.
- I want to announce several changes
in race management. After being heard making discouraging remarks
on the trail, Jim Moore has been demoted from Team Slug management,
his status may be restored pending the results of his next
evaluation. In addition, Anstr has been drafted to management as
Director of Public Affairs.
- Thanks to the All Nighter for
providing the certificates, Bagel Bill for the Redeye buttons, the
Brewmiester for his internet assistance, and each participant for
contributing all the great junk food (better every year).
- Next year – Same Time –
Same Place (Pending receipt of a National Park Service Special Use
Permit – how unSluglike). Start Slowly, Ease Off!
