2010 Bimbler’s Bash Trail Race & the CT Shoreline

Debbie ran the Bimbler’s Bash Trail Race in Guilford, Connecticut today. I had Daddy Duty and also shot photographs. While she was running the “10kish” course, I hung out at the two very cool playgrounds. We both had a blast. Our kids did too. The race was run under brilliant blue skies and more than 200 runners frolicked in the Westwoods Trails mud.

Debbie was third woman, behind Kerry Arsenault and Megan Raymond. Kerry ran 1:05:17. Megan was four seconds behind. Debbie ran 1:06:04, less than a minute behind. The course was more like seven miles. The distance doesn’t matter. I ran it last year and it is rugged for a short course. The men’s winner was Will McDonough in 53:57. Second was Jesse Efron and third was Charlie Iselin. Fellow Shenipsit Strider, John Agosto, was sixth.

After the race, we went to the Shoreline Diner & Vegetarian Enclave for the first time. It was a good meal. We each had a vegan entrΓ©e. We were referred by Mary Lawrence of Well on Wheels, who set up their vegan menu. The menu isn’t all vegetarian, which made for an eclectic mix of customers. There were many people there for the normal diner fare, and there were some of us sampling the vegetarian/vegan food. It was a cool place.

After lunch, we visited my parents in Old Lyme and checked out the beach. There was a lot of erosion from the winter storms and the April rain did even more damage. I rode my bike home, which was a lot of fun. Bimbler’s, the Shoreline Diner, the Beach, and a ride made for an excellent Sunday.

@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 πŸƒπŸ»β›°πŸ† 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
