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.

@bentwaterbrewing #bentwaterbrewing #pulpfiction #lynnlynnthecityofsin Overnight with @boyscoutsofamerica Troop 25 at the 4-H Camp in Pomfret. The toboggan run was hairy! I just watched. #boyscouts That moment when @trailrunningmom discovered that our longtime #Christmas Tree 🌲 supplier is a regular student in her #yoga class. They previously hadn’t recognized each other when not wearing #yogini gear. It was great to hear how our farmer has improved her strength and flexibility since she took over the business from her late husband. Note: preparing our menorah for #hannukah takes less work than this! Lovely December day for #Cyclocross at Goddard Park. @nbx_bikes #nbxcx @vittoriaseries #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad @horsteng #crossspikes #rhodeisland Lovely day for more than 130 #BoltonLandTrust members and friends at the annual Walk of #Thanksgiving #bolton #connecticut 🌲 #blackfriday didn’t start so badly! Great day at the #manchesterroadrace @shenipsitstriders #shenipsitstriders #silkcitystriders #teamhorstsports #thanksgiving 🏃🏻 If I always had the option to commute by train 🚂, I would take it. #multitasking 1h45m each way if uninterrupted productivity and NO driving. I even squeezed in a lap of #centralpark with Tim. 🏃🏻#manhattan #newyork Fir @john.meyerle because I neglected to post earlier: @supercross_cup This video is the Cat 4/5 Men. Great start for @the_ccap boys Nick and Johnny. #supercrosscx #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #horstengineering #crossspikes @horsteng #cyclocross #lifedeathcyclocross
