Miami Beach

Last week, we went to Miami Beach, Florida. I haven’t had time to write much about anything lately, but the warm weather is worth writing about. Winter in Connecticut was tough this year. It is long every year, but this year felt worse. It was nice to head south where the sun is a lot warmer in March. The main Miami event was a conference for global business leaders. Both Debbie and I were involved with the event, which attracted people from 72 countries. We got to take the pulse of the world economy just by riding in elevators and chatting up friends from Morocco, Australia, Bahrain, Mexico, Canada, Egypt, South Africa, and beyond.

We were based at the Fontainebleau Hotel, which has an amazing history. It has been substantially renovated and was a really great venue for a large gathering. The hotel has one of the best lobbies that I have ever been in. The location was fabulous and we had a chance to explore Miami Beach on foot. We ran the boardwalk every morning. I also swam in the Atlantic Ocean, both in the early morning after sunrise and in the evening before sunset.

Awesome morning at #elmcitycx the #ctseriesofcx finale. The kids did great. So did the Masters. Great season. Many of us are done after today. A few of us are headed to Nats. At the moment, all of us are frozen! #newhaven #cyclocross #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #crossspikes @horsteng #lifedeathcyclocross ❄️🚴🏽⛄️🍺 @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
