Bluff 50K Aftermath-Why Drive When You Can Run?

Diving back into a normal work filled  Monday, right after a 31+ mile trail running race, The Bluff 50K, isn’t the best recovery plan. Regardless, the endorphins were still popping today, thanks to my 1) finish and 2) three minute victory over Debbie. I love the sound of that, “Three minute victory over Debbie.” I had to repeat it. That is a bit of retribution for the drubbing she delivered at Breakneck earlier this month. Of course, I was hopelessly lost at Breakneck too. That cost me then, but yesterday was different. The stars must have been aligned because I was able to get lost, run miles extra, and still prevail. 

Today is a different story. The legs and back have stiffened up and I’m dreading tomorrow because it is always worse two days after the long run. I spent four hours driving today because I had to travel to Massachusetts for a business engagement. Tomorrow, I’m back in the car for another two plus hours because of a business meeting in Southern Connecticut. Ouch. My hamstrings are going to need some stretching. I would rather run more than be forced to drive another mile. How many people share my feelings? Drive less, run more? That sounds just fine to me.

Debbie and I both ran with members of Team Supreme. The self proclaimed running supremacists had a good showing. Deb ran with Art and I spent a while running (and getting lost) with Michael. Both had fine races. Michael had a fun post on their team blog, “Just Another Day In Studville.” 

It looks like these four guys like to run as much as we do!

@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
