Leatherman’s Loop

in Essential Ramblings

Gearing up for the Leatherman’s Loop weekend here at the Menzies — no, please don’t get me wrong, I am not running it.  All these running and race posts are going to give you the wrong idea.  But this time of year, the races, the itch to get outside and shed those winter sweaters (and pounds) and you would think I actually exercise.  Anyway, there are a ton of WONDERFUL events coming up this weekend in support of Earth day Saturday and Sunday, and one of my favorites, which happens to coincide with Earth Day this year is the running of the Leatherman’s Loop this weekend.  My husband runs it, as do many of our courageous and fit friends — a test of wills, a day of mud, and a tired but spiritually lifted group at the end of the race.  If you are running it, my wishes of luck go out to you…if you aren’t, come cheer them on — it’s a beautiful race, a great way to get out and support the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation, and just a generally fun and crazy day in Westchester.  By the way, the race is full, but you can find out more about it here at www.leathermansloop.org if you are curious.
