Mud Sweat and Beers

The 2nd annual Mud Sweat and Beers took place this past weekend in Traverse City. This year's weather threatened to be a little chilly. Thankfully, despite and early 9am start time, things warmed up and even presented a chance to try out our new team shorts even. This year's course did not disappoint with the addition of a good deal of single track making it a legit 20 mile race. This course has become one of my personal favorites with the relentless climbs, white knuckle decents and lung burning flats offered by the Vasa Trail and surrounding area. "Sweat" is certainly not in short supply and this year was a mud spit was added just before the finish line to ensure that "Mud" was part of the equation. Post race activities were taken up a knotch from last year and plenty of Right Brain Brewery "Beers" were flowing. All said and done, this is certainly an event worth making the trip up north to attend.
