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.

Livingston Family firefighters. 🔥 👩‍🚒 🚒 When @trailrunningmom “smoked” the obstacle course AND added some push-ups for good measure, the Chief pulled out his business card and made a pitch for her to join the squad. I thought I was the competitive one, but she can turn anything into a competition! The kids had a blast too at family day.
From race directing to @thecubscouts directing. Proud day for our son, @trailrunningmom and the rest of #cubscouts Pack 157 Den 5 as they earned their Arrow of Light. Four of her boys are moving to @boyscoutsofamerica #scoutsbsa after five years of fun and learning.
Little D and I ran the @shenipsitstriders #soapstonemountaintrailrace Jerry Stage Sampler 6K with a bunch of other crazies! Tackling the infamous Sandpit with its 40% gradient and slick conditions was great fun. #trailrunning #shenipsitstriders #teamhorstsports 🏃‍♀️⛰
