2013 Shenipsit Striders Fat Butt Run

It’s fitting that my first blog post of the year is about our first run of the year. The Shenipsit Striders hosted a Fat Ass Run at Crandall Park in Tolland, Connecticut. This was the second annual low-key event to celebrate the start of a new year.

Around the house, Debbie renamed it the “Fat Butt Run” which everyone, particularly our three-year old, got a kick out of. It’s Fat Ass season with many runs over the next month.

We had a nice turnout, with at least 15 members present. Thanks to Race Director Clint Morse for marking the course, tamping down the snow, and setting up the “finish line” table. The course was open from 8:00 A.M. until 2:00 P.M (it’s still open if you want to go!) for members to run as many laps as they wanted.

I went first among the Livingston’s and did three laps. I hiked half a lap with the kids and played in the snow while Debbie did four laps of her own. It was loads of fun. You didn’t need snowshoes, but they were optional. Some folks wore spikes/studded shoes, but we went without.

It was a nice way to get things moving again.

@trailrunningmom and I had an enjoyable run in #centralpark this A.M. We were in #newyork for @appalachianmountainclub board meetings and had to see some trees. She is tapering for #Wapack and Back 50 miler in MA/NH this weekend. #appalachianmountainclub @centralparknyc A funky bolt that we pulled from stock @horsteng to ship to the same government customer 17 years later. Glad they still use them. I think we thread ground these. Not sure, but it looks like it and I could check. #precisionmachining #manufacturing #aerospace #instamachinist #cnc #cncmachining #machining #madeinconnecticut #madeinnewengland #madeinusa #horstengineering @trailrunningmom coming down the West Ridge Trail in the #greenmountains of #vermont #trailrunning @ultraspire #ultraspire Fantastic run/hike on the Glastenbury/West Ridge Loop in the #greenmountains of #vermont 21.2 miles/5h27m and lots of fun. We pushed it, but not too hard. Good 1.5 day date/training camp with @trailrunningmom #trailrunning #hiking #longtrail #appalachiantrail @ultraspire #ultraspire #shenipsitstriders @trailrunningmom didn't slow down on this steep descent when this little guy puffed up and flexed his quills at us. #porcupine #berkshires #cycling Fun evening ride in the #berkshires with @trailrunningmom We found some BIG hills (up AND down) on road AND dirt. I need to come back and hammer this loop. #zoargap #teamhorstsports #sevencycles #deerfieldriver #dunbarbrook #pursuitstrong #cycling #precisionmachining some nice couplings from heat treated blanks. The profile, hex, threads, inside diameter, and conical seats are made complete on one of our #Eurotech multi-axis lathes @horsteng When these are done, there headed to Japan. #manufacturing #machining #instamachinist #cnc #cncmachining #aerospace #madeinconnecticut #madeinnewengland #madeinusa #horstengineering Last night, I toured @getbackinc in Oakville. It's my kind of shop, complete with an anvil like the one in my office. I told the proprietor that @horsteng shamefully threw out tons of vintage industrial equipment and furniture over the last 70 years. It wasn't always vintage when we chucked it! Now people pay big $ to incorporate this stuff on to high end furniture of there own, but I bet those customers don't have 7,000 sf of wood block factory floor. That's vintage! #horstengineering I had a nice post work ride. First I rode up and around Marblehead Neck, and then I explored a windy #Nahant until the sun got low in the sky. I finally learned what a #tombolo is. #sevencycles #teamhorstsports #bicycle
