2007 Pittsfield Peaks Ultra Challenge

Debbie ran the Pittsfield Peaks trail race on Saturday. This was truly an epic. I had an ultra-marathon of my own, taking care of Shep for 12+ hours. It was non-stop feeding, diaper changing, photographing, crewing, and some playing. We had a blast while Deb romped in the woods. I’m working on some real stories about the race day, but here is the brief update.

Start of the Pittsfield Peaks Ultra Challenge

Deb ran one of her best ultras yet. The race was billed as 53 miles, but ended up being 55 or so, according to a few GPS toting runners. The course was extremely rugged and it took its toll on many of the runners. In spots it was tough to follow and several runners were lost in the woods…for a while. Leigh Schmitt was first man and Deb was first woman. Others have covered the race and I’ll follow up with more detail in the future.

#shenipsittrail On the road again. @seven_cycles #sevencycles #teamhorstsports #atl Starting the 2017 #trailrunning season in style...and on a Monday morning in the #caribbean to add to the fun! @trailrunningmom won the 13.8 mile #stjohntrailrace in 2:37. She wasn't far behind me. The @virginislandsnps trails were gnarly and it was hot. #teamhorstsports #shenipsitstriders @altrarunning #altrarunning @ultraspire #ultraspire @julbousa #julbousa #family #hiking #stjohnusvi @virginislandsnps #virginislandsnps Nice colors on our early A.M. flight. #md88 #JT8D #aerospace #sunrise ☀️ I'm pumped! I scored 47 vintage @appalachianmountainclub #Appalachia Journals (various issues between 1916-1979) with a #craigslist purchase. The process started with a #google Alert, and then after an email inquiry, followed by a text, and then a call; the terms were set. Hours later I pulled off the Mass Pike on my commute home from #sterlingmachine and did the deal in a commuter lot. I was fascinated by the seller's full time career in dealing ephemera and other collectibles. I'll add these to the stack of unread magazines, including the 10 boxes of vintage @natgeo magazines I scored years ago that @trailrunningmom keeps asking me where I plan to store them. We need more bookshelves. I've been getting Appalachia via mail twice/Year for 20 years and it has been published continuously since the #appalachianmountainclub founding in 1876. We wrapped up this snowy week with an afternoon #snowshoe "commute" to Little D's @girlscouts Brownie meeting and back. We are quite fortunate to have trails right out our front and back doors. #carfreecommute #boltonheritagefarm #rosefarm
