People’s Forest Trail Run

Several records fell at the People’s Forest 7-Mile Trail Run, yesterday in Barkhamsted, Connecticut. Deb’s old course record was beaten by Abby Woods, and Ben Nephew’s course record was shattered by Marc Robaczynksi. Even the masters womens record was beaten by Cheryl Cunningham. Deb finished 15th overall and was 3rd woman. Brett Stoeffler did not set a record, but he won the masters’s division and finished 3rd overall. I promised him that I would post one of my photos behind Robaczynksi and Nephew.

I looked after Shep and rested my legs for the big Monday night showdown at the Summer Grand Prix Cross Country Race #4. After three horrible series races, I have to run well in at least one of these. My legs are not quite normal (will they ever be?) after running Jay last weekend, but I’ll give it a go.

People’s is one of the shortest and fastest races in the Grand Tree Series. It is set in the beautiful People’s State Forest. Next to the Farmington River, it is a great place for kids to play. Since I didn’t run, I got a chance to walk around. I came across the Stone Museum, a beautiful structure. Unfortunately, it was not open, so I could only scope out the outside while Shep napped in the Chariot.

@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 Once again, @trailrunningmom took the cookie prize for winning the special summit competition at the finish line of the #shenipsitstriders #SoapstoneAssault Here is a picture of a picture of myself taking a picture. @cwoodside59 put together a nice piece for the @ctforestandparkassociation quarterly. I'm looking forward to my next #carfreecommute #selfie #bicycle #windingtrails Kid's #Triathlon
