7 Sisters, three painful days later…

Three days after the 7 Sisters Trail Race, and I’m still limping around. I did some serious damage to my quadriceps and the heat sucked the life out of me. It is going to take a few more days to bounce back. I swam this morning, but had a “goggle malfunction” 15 minutes into the session. I sprung a leak and then the goggles just snapped in half. Oh well. I can’t see six inches without contacts and I had them in, so I practiced swimming with my eyes closed.

As for Sisters, I’ve seen a lot of Facebook posts, blog entries, and other discussion board activity. Most people agree that there isn’t a tougher 12 mile course out there. Nearly 300 people suffered through the heat and most came out feeling accomplishment. It was my seventh Sisters in a row and it was Debbie’s tenth in a row. For her, that is quite a feat. For me, it is stupidity. I’m not made that kind of up and down. Debbie has been running strong on the Grand Tree Trail Running circuit for more than a decade.

Hopefully everyone recovers and comes out to her race, the Soapstone Mountain Trail Race on 16 May. The Shenipsit Striders are ready to host another great event. I can tell Soapstone is near when the activity level picks up around the house. The Race Director is getting things ready. Very cool.

Awesome Day 2 at the @the_ccap #Cyclocross Camp. #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #horstspikes #crossspikes #googinscross #lifedeathcyclocross #crossiscoming 🚴🏽 Great ride with Tom. #teamhorstsports #madeinusa πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ Day one of the @the_ccap Junior #Cyclocross Camp was awesome. #horstspikes #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #lifedeathcyclocross #crossiscoming @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
