Mugwumps was the inspiration of Jay Caldwell and Tim Middleton. The name ‘mugwumps’ is a political term heralding from the 1870-80’s. A person is said to be mug on one side, and wumps on the other, unable to commit to either political view -- as some of us have trouble deciding whether we are serious runners or do it just for fun.
