2013 Shenipsit Striders Fat Butt Run

It’s fitting that my first blog post of the year is about our first run of the year. The Shenipsit Striders hosted a Fat Ass Run at Crandall Park in Tolland, Connecticut. This was the second annual low-key event to celebrate the start of a new year.

Around the house, Debbie renamed it the “Fat Butt Run” which everyone, particularly our three-year old, got a kick out of. It’s Fat Ass season with many runs over the next month.

We had a nice turnout, with at least 15 members present. Thanks to Race Director Clint Morse for marking the course, tamping down the snow, and setting up the “finish line” table. The course was open from 8:00 A.M. until 2:00 P.M (it’s still open if you want to go!) for members to run as many laps as they wanted.

I went first among the Livingston’s and did three laps. I hiked half a lap with the kids and played in the snow while Debbie did four laps of her own. It was loads of fun. You didn’t need snowshoes, but they were optional. Some folks wore spikes/studded shoes, but we went without.

It was a nice way to get things moving again.

That's a serious Mexican pool party outside my hotel room! I'm in town to focus on #precisionmachining and NOT swimming. The irony is that when I'm usually here, I'm the only one who swims. After a 6 hour flight and 6 hour drive, nice sunset. #horstengineering #shenipsitstriders summer picnic after the Soapstone Assault Trail Race. #trailrunning Heavy rain didn't dampen spirits. #taekwondo belt test "breaking." It took a few more tries to snap the 3rd board but he passed. #starspangledbanner playing prior to belt testing at U.S. #taekwondo #threadrolling a simple .250-28 UNF-2A screw for a rare non-aerospace application. This is for an industrial product. These were turned to pre-roll thread pitch diameter rather than centerless ground because of the wide open tolerances. These blanks were customer supplied. #horstengineering I think I'll run 101.5 miles, drive/fly/drive home, and then do a triathlon to accelerate my recovery. #trt100 #tahoerimtrail100 The #tahoerimtrail100 #trt100 awards ceremony was cancelled due to the unprecedented storm that is rolling through. Thankfully all runners had finished before the violent rain, hail, and lightning hit around 2:30 P.M. With 90 minutes to go before cutoff. I tracked down Debbie's drop back during the tempest, placed an order at the burrito truck, and also got her buckle. It wasn't ready, so they made it while I waited in the driving rain. I would have preferred a sunny ceremony by the lake. But this was an EPIC finish to an EPIC week. Wow! Debbie finished in 27:19ish. It was a tough race (understatement) but she got it done with support from pacer, Daniel Roy, her crew, family, and friends. So good to come back a year later and finish what she started in 2013. Thanks for following my posts. She and I will have full race reports later in the week and I have much better photos to share. The iPhone can only do so much, but it still is one heck of a journalistic tool. #tahoerimtrail100 #trt100 #pursuitstrong #horstengineering #teamhorstsports #teamlivingston Debbie weighing in back at Tunnel Creek AS after the 6 mile Red House Loop. She is feeling "peppy" according to Dan. Ready to make a charge! Thru 67 miles in 17:32. #trt100 #tahoerimtrail100 #pursuitstrong #ultraspire #teamhorstsports
