Boston, Massachusetts and the Santa’s Speedo Run

Last weekend, we had a great holiday season trip to Boston, Massachusetts. There were several highlights, including the Santa’s Speedo Run. Unfortunately, I got closed out of this event. I couldn’t believe that it filled up so fast! It would have been my 38th race of the year, but alas, it was not to be. Since the temperature was 25F, I shouldn’t be complaining. I’ve got the Scrooge Scramble coming up on Christmas Day, but this one would have been fun.

On Saturday afternoon, the boys visited the New England Aquarium while the girls went shopping.

On Sunday, we explored many of my old neighborhoods. Over the course of the day, I saw each of the five places that I lived during my college career: 700 Commonwealth Ave., 24 Union Park in the South End, 1653 Commonwealth Ave. in Brighton, 90 St. Thomas More Rd. in Chestnut Hill, and 66 Commonwealth Ave. in Chestnut Hill. It was a blast revisiting the past.

During the weekend, we dined around Asia at Bangkok Blue Thai, Kashmir, and Shabu-Zen. Also on Sunday, we walked 10 kilometers, had fun at a great South End playground, and visited the Boston Common. It was frigid on Saturday and cold and rainy on Sunday, but that didn’t dampen our spirits. The holiday decorations were nice and the streets were bustling with people.

By  afternoon, it was raining pretty heavy, and after our fourth T ride of the day, the troops were a bit weary. We traipsed through Allston and Brighton, then hiked through the Boston College campus in Chestnut Hill, then over to the Green Line for our last train ride of the day. Everyone had a fine time.

Not a bad way to cap the weekend. @patriots #nepatriots #patsgame #patriots 🏈 Two days of #crawfordnotch views sandwiched with @appalachianmountainclub meeting. Cycling on Rt. 302, #trailrunning on the Crawford Path, and Mount Willard. #newhampshire 🚴🏽🏃🏻⛰ Sites and sounds from Day 2 @gpgloucester #gpgloucester The fog was burning off by the end of the Cub Juniors 9-14 year old race.

#horstspikes #cyclocross #lifedeathcyclocross #horstengineering #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #madeinconnecticut #madeinnewengland #madeinusa 🇺🇸 It was great to see so many friends at today’s Western #Massachusetts Athletic Club Monroe (Dunbar Brook) Trail Race. We all ran the 2-Miler. We couldn’t stay long after the finish, but we did see Kelsey Allen win overall in the 10.5 Mile main event. Hooray! #trailrunning 🏃🏻 Before and after the Western #Massachusetts Athletic Club’s Monroe (Dunbar Brook) Trail Race in the #Berkshires I rode (very wet) over from Savoy Mountain State Forest where we camped last night. On the ride along the #DeerfieldRiver I checked out #ZoarGap and then we walked down to the river to see the Tooth. Sadly, the kayakers had already passed through. The foliage turned overnight. #trailrunning #cycling 🚴🏽🏃🏻⛰ #Cyclocross racing in the morning and downhill #mountainbiking @thundermountainbikepark in the afternoon. We got in two late afternoon runs on rental bikes and are pumped to return for more fun in the future. #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #thundermountainbikepark #berkshireeast 🚵‍♀️⛰ 30 kids in the 9-12 year old Race at the #mansfieldhollow #Cyclocross That’s just awesome! @the_ccap #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #crossspikes #crossisboss This image was from pregame, but approaching halftime @uconnfootball there aren’t many more fans than you see here. 35 (Memphis ) to 21 (UCONN) is a lot of points in 30 minutes of #football #uconn This morning I got to hear Warren Rustand, inspirational entrepreneur and fellow @ypoglobal member, speak at a #ypo Connecticut River Valley Chapter meeting. It was fitting that the event was @riverfrontrecapture and literally ON the #connecticutriver I walked from @horsteng via my favorite train bridge. The 10 minute trip back to the plant was ample time to reflect on the #leadership lessons that he shared with our group. @garyrome and I decided that we should memorialize our time with this dedicated athlete, by requesting that he join our photo. #horstengineering #business
