Stud Muffin and a Trail Run

"If you treat an individual as if he were what he ought to be and could be, he will become what he ought to be and could be."– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Early this morning and I do mean early, Secretariat and Randall came by the house to do our trail run. We started earlier than usual since Randall had to be home early for his work assignment. Secretariat was still concerned about his medical condition since he has not yet heard from his doctor. Hopefully, when he hears from his doctor, the news will be good. In any event, it is on his mind. We ran until we reached Brown’s bar and then headed on the River Trail to Maine Bar before returning to my house. According to Secretariats GPS, we ran about 8 miles I maintained that the distance was longer.
During this trail run, we talked about Stud Muffin the name given to Secretariat by a world-class ultra female runner. He was given that name while he was in his prime. We also constantly reminded Secretariat to hydrate and he did.
Randall has entered a marathon, his first, on October 13 in the Bay Area. Unfortunately, the Cool Ride and Tie was scheduled for the same date. Randall was running well and seemed stronger and stronger. I predict him to be successful on his marathon.
After the run, we discussed his camel back. Linda and I have about three as well. We discussed the merits and demerits of use. He’s pretty excited about his and was selling me on the idea of using one as well. Currently, I use either two hand held water bottles and a fanny pack or a holster that carries two water bottles. I agree that a camel back works well on long run without water.
