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.

Little D passed her second of three #taekwondo #blackbelt tests. The third, and biggest, is in October. #tkd #sunset #md90 🌞✈️ #echoamphitheater #carsonnationalforest #newmexico Stopping to stretch our legs and use the potty was the best $2 I've spent in a while. I even borrowed a nickel from @trailrunningmom and got rid of the 95 cents in my pocket. Amazing #durango #colorado trails. These are the #HorseGulchTrails near @fortlewiscollege which has an amazing #cycling culture. When I raced collegiates @bcclubcycling & @bucycling in the early 90's, it wasn't anything like what's happening with the powerhouse @flccycling team. What an amazing backyard. Imagine rolling out of your dorm and onto this landscape. I would never go to class! Don't tell my kids I said that! #mountainbiking #cyclocross #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #horstspikes 🚵‍♀️ @trailrunningmom finished in 41 hours and 1 minute. #hr100 #hardrock100 #shenipsitstriders #teamhorstsports #trailrunning #ultrarunning #womenofultrarunning @trailrunningmom  at the #hr100 #womenofultrarunning @trailrunningmom  at the #hr100 #womenofultrarunning @trailrunningmom left the Chapman Aid Station at 2:10 P.M. I paced her from Ouray (56.6 miles) to Chapman (82.2 miles). @ultramarathondan will take her to the finish of the @hardrock100 #hr100 #hardrock100 Most importantly, she is in good spirits and despite the altitude, is moving OK on the climbs, albeit slowly. As for the descents, her legs are trashed but she is still bombing them. Finish could be in the 40-42 hour range if all goes well. Who knows? Lots of variables! Fingers crossed. I have tons of photos to go through, so I selected one of our crew with Deb as she headed out for the final 18 miles. #trailrunning #ultrarunning #shenipsitstriders #teamhorstsports We finally reconnected with @trailrunningmom She arrived at Grouse Gulch, 42.2 miles at 8:33pm and departed at 8:50pm. She was soaked to the bone after climbing her first ever 14,000 foot peak. Handies had lots of hail and rain. She changed every piece of clothing and shoes and felt much better. The drive to/from was white knuckle insanity with our rental. @ultramarathondan is with her now. It will be a long night. I'll see her in Ouray. Our kids  have been awesome. Mom just wants to finish, but a long way to go. @hardrock100 #hr100 #hardrock100 #trailrunning #ultrarunning 🏃🏻⛰
