J.P. Morgan 4-Miler

It was a long week of travel and little time to post. However, I wanted to highlight that a week ago today, Shep and I ran the J.P. Morgan 4-Miler at Cedar Hill Cemetary, in Hartford, Connecticut. This was another race in the Hartford Track Club’s Winter Training Series.

Cedar Hill Cemetery.

We had nasty weather conditions for the Sunday morning race. It was 35°F and pouring rain. There was a stiff breeze and intermittent snow mixed in with the rain. It was awful. However, the course was fabulous. It consisted of two laps of Cedar Hill Cemetery, a gem that I had never fully appreciated. Directly across Maple Avenue from Goodwin Park in Hartford’s South End, the cemetery rivals any that I’ve been in. I can’t wait to go back when the weather is better.

Despite the conditions, the race was fun. The HTC has been hosting this event for many years and each year they honor a different “resident” of the cemetery. Morgan, the financier, is buried there and it was fitting that we honored him this year while our economy suffers. The winners’ took home Monopoly board games. Shep and I didn’t hang around for the awards ceremony because it was so wet and cold! We high-tailed it out of there after a quick cool down, and headed to Middletown for brunch at one of our favorite restaurants, It’s Only Natural.

I never post about food. However, this is the second time this week that I’m posting about food. These #vegan dishes at Empress by @theprivegroup were awesome. #instavegan #singapore Everything worked out fine for @trailrunningmom After a little stress, they had her race packet and bib number at the @metasprintseries venue and she kept it upright on the bike! 🚴🏽 She was very pleased with 2nd place 🏆 in her age group at her first road #Duathlon.🏃🏻There are no mountains ⛰ and there isn’t much singletrack in #singapore but it’s still a great city for endurance sports. It looked like there were more than 1,500 athletes at the 3K/18K/3K race with LOTS of kids too. Great vibe! #triathlonsg #teamhorstsports 🇺🇸 Our kids may recognize this great Shoppes @marinabaysands feature from six years ago. I had forgotten how cool it was. #singapore #marinabaysands First time on a road bike for @trailrunningmom In advance of her first ever road duathlon @metasprintseries I taught her some tips & tricks including the do's/don'ts of shifting strategy, cornering, blocking (not), drafting (not), passing, flying mount/dismount, etc. It was fun! Even though she was on a "rental" too, I couldn't keep up on my "steed." #triathlonsg #singapore #teamhorstsports @thecheryltan #cheryltan #singapore #singapore Name those tunes. 11-year-old Feng E is making a name for himself in Asia and beyond. #guitar #fenge #singapore 🎸 @trailrunningmom led #yoga at #ypoedge #singapore 

@ypoglobal #yogini Tremendous #vegan dinner @metasingapore Without a heads up, Chef Sun and his team whipped up an amazing seven course + three “snacks” meal for @trailrunningmom and me, that was worthy of their @michelinguide star. We sat at the counter and watched every step in the process. Chef said that with advanced notice (of our diet), he “would have done better.” We appreciated his perfectionism, but it was just fine. #metarestaurant #instavegan #michelinguide #singapore
