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.

Our version of the Poggio...after 10 years of waiting, I think we found a new training partner in the household to join @trailrunningmom and me...at least on the easy days. I'll take advantage now since in another 10 years, I'll be the one getting dropped. #horstspikes #cycling @islabikesusa #islabikes #teamhorstsports #boltonheritagefarm #bolton #Connecticut L to R: Places 2, 4, and 3 at the frigid  #BoltonRoadRace We had lots of fun. The best part is that I tower over the crew in this photo! #shenipsitstriders #silkcitystriders #teamhorstsports #railtrail #vernon #Connecticut @seven_cycles #sevencycles #teamhorstsports Back in #hartford for #ctbizday with many business friends. #smallbusiness is the engine of our economy. @cbia_ @horsteng #horstengineering #familybusiness #manufacturing #aerospace #madeinconnecticut 🇺🇸 Last night, I got to listen to #RickRidgeway describe @patagonia and their mission in his own words as part of the @wornwear College Tour. @yalesustain hosted the event. I wrote a piece for my own blog and explained why I admire the company and how it inspires us @horsteng The restored plaster model of the Genius of #Connecticut stands in the Capitol rotunda. She dates back to 1877. I was here to represent @horsteng and the @cbia_ and talk health care cost containment with our local state senator. I got my points across, but even as we sat and talked, our health insurance costs rose. It happens every second of the very day. #cbia #horstengineering #smallbusiness I'll be back tomorrow for Connecticut Business Day. #ctbizday Early season training on the #railtrail with one member of the #teamhorstsports Junior squad. #hoprivertrail #horstspikes #islabikes #sevencycles #railtrail #hoprivertrail #trailrunning
