2014 Shenipsit Striders 6-Hour Run

Rabbit, rabbit. Today was a day of firsts. First run of the year. First photo of the year. First twisted ankle of the year. First wrong turn of the year. First blister of the year. Let the fun begin!

More than 50 Shenipsit Striders and friends came out to Crandall Park in Tolland, Connecticut for our annual 6-hour run. It was a great way to kick off 2014. Our club is strong and getting stronger. It was great to catch up with folks after this long holiday stretch and hear about some of their 2014 athletic objectives.

Debbie and I are excited about the year ahead with some awesome races on the calendar. Things certainly aren’t final yet, but as events are scheduled, we are adding them to our plans. It’s nice to have the focus and clarity that January 1st brings.

Thanks to Clinton Morse for spearheading the 6-hour run, setting up the aid station with lots of goodies, and marking the course. Thanks to Hector Morera for sweeping the course and picking up the flags. Thanks to everyone who came out to run on a cold, but sunny day.

Debbie went early and did four laps of the three-mile loop in a few hours. I met her there with our kids. I did a lap with our son while she hiked with our daughter. She returned home and I did a few more laps including a special one with multiple wrong turns that tacked on a few extra miles.

Folks came out and did as many or as few laps as they desired. It was a great low-key start to 2014.

Blanking a "Key, Machine" on our newest rebuilt #brownandsharpe #ultramatic #screwmachine Made from AMS 6370 low alloy steel rectangular bar stock. For an aircraft engine. #horstengineering #aerospace #madeinusa Very cool. I actually got back in line after dinner to purchase some of the rooftop produce. Looks like banana peppers and tomatoes on top of my Hampton Inn oatmeal for breakfast!  #wholefoods @wholefoodsmarket Debbie leads the #boltonlandtrust Evening of #Yoga at #boltonlake #shavasana Here is the fiercest chick I know in a serene moment. This was just minutes before she slipped and sat in a mud puddle and all heck broke loose. Mercifully I was able to convince her to begin walking again. I know that I'll miss these days in the future. For now, I have to deal with the wrath of the 4-year old and cherish these moments. :) #justthebestfrommexico #cafenoche #mexico #carternotch @appalachianmountainclub Yet another rainy #hike !!!! #ramparts #carternotch @appalachianmountainclub #teamlivingston Yes, this dude rode a #unicycle up #mtwashington #mountwashington It took three tries to negotiate the final 22% grade which he is just starting in this image.
