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.
