Soapstone Mountain Trail Races: This Weekend!

The countdown is under way. Only four days until the 25th edition of the Soapstone Mountain Trail Race. The 24km main race starts at 9:00 A.M. on Sunday and the 6km Soapstone Sampler will follow shortly after. The Shenipsit Striders are ready to rumble! This is a milestone event for our little running club and I’m happy to be a part of it. Since Debbie Livingston (my spouse) is the Race Director, we have a Soapstone themed look to our house. We have race applications, race numbers, pins, food, t-shirts, first aid kits, signs, and all of the other supplies for the big day. Race central is right here, right now. The applications have been rolling in and the first time experiment with www.imathlete.comΒ is working well. A lot of runners will be using the long course as training for the Nipmuck Trail MarathonΒ three weeks later. I’m looking forward to the Grand Daddy of New England Grand Tree Trail Running Series races this year. Of course, if you are looking for an introductory trail running experience or even just a walk in the woods, come on out for the Sampler. That is how Debbie got started in this sport 10 years ago.

Livingston Family firefighters. πŸ”₯ πŸ‘©β€πŸš’ πŸš’ When @trailrunningmom β€œsmoked” the obstacle course AND added some push-ups for good measure, the Chief pulled out his business card and made a pitch for her to join the squad. I thought I was the competitive one, but she can turn anything into a competition! The kids had a blast too at family day.
From race directing to @thecubscouts directing. Proud day for our son, @trailrunningmom and the rest of #cubscouts Pack 157 Den 5 as they earned their Arrow of Light. Four of her boys are moving to @boyscoutsofamerica #scoutsbsa after five years of fun and learning.
