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.

Awesome Day 2 at the @the_ccap #Cyclocross Camp. #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #horstspikes #crossspikes #googinscross #lifedeathcyclocross #crossiscoming 🚴🏽 Great ride with Tom. #teamhorstsports #madeinusa 🇺🇸 Day one of the @the_ccap Junior #Cyclocross Camp was awesome. #horstspikes #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #lifedeathcyclocross #crossiscoming @trailrunningmom led another successful #Yoga at #Sunset for the #boltonlandtrust This year's venue was the #BoltonHeritageFarm It's been a tradition to move to a new spot each time. I got my first #cyclocross ride of the year in too! #yogini #yogi #shavasana Sightseeing on my second favorite road in #Connecticut #grassyhill #cycling #bicycle #sevencycles #horstengineering Camp was swell! @thecubscouts @boyscoutsofamerica #cubscouts #boyscouts #junenorcrosswebster I visited the new HQ of the @appalachianmountainclub that is under construction at 10 City Square in #Charlestown I had to ride by the #BunkerHill Monument at the end of the #FreedomTrail #Boston #sevencycles First time at the People's Forest Trail Race since 2011. This first image is the look of a dejected man who lost 25 minutes with a wrong turn on a big descent. That's costly in an 11 kilometer race. Even worse is that @trailrunningmom is the one who led him (and two other runners) off course! They survived. It was a nice day on the #FarmingtonRiver. #trailrunning #teamhorstsports #shenipsitstriders 🏃🏻⛰🏆 Another great #sunset at #windingtrails Two distant pre-swim thunderclaps turned the race into a #Duathlon which suited me just fine! It's nice to not come into T1 with a two minute deficit. #Triathlon #mountainbiking #trailrunning #teamhorstsports
