2012 Bolton Summer Cross Country Series

We had a fantastic night for the final 2012 Bolton Summer Cross Country Series race. Race #7 was all out family fun. Dani and Ned Kennedy and their team of dedicated volunteers should be commended for hosting such a great event.

The Bolton Heritage Farm (aka the Rose Farm) is the perfect venue for a weekly summer running series. The little one’s 50 yard dash, the 1 mile (really .8) kid’s race, and the 2.3 (I guess) mile adult race have drawn big fields this year.

The proceeds benefit both the farm and the Bolton High School Track team. One of the best things about this race is that it is local. It is really local. We usually make the one mile commute by bicycle. Tonight was really a family affair. In addition to Debbie and our kids, my sister Stacie, my niece, and my nephew ran. My brother-in-law Steve was there for support. My parents came to watch, and so did my aunt and uncle.

Tonight was the finale and awards ceremony. It was fitting that the fastest time of the year for women was set by Ashley Gurzler, and that it was also a course record. The fastest 2012 men’s time was set by local guy, Adam Seften.

Congratulations to all of the age group winners and thank you to the sponsors who support the race. Both the  Shenipsit Striders and Silk City Striders have had a strong presence all summer. Every town should have a series like ours where you get kids and adults outside and moving their bodies.

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
