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.

#eatmydust was the mantra at the CompEdge #Cyclocross in #springfield First #CX race of the year and first time in 125+ races that I've done cross in August. Ran my new Sidi's with Medium @horsteng #HorstSpikes on the fast track. Rough start to the day with burnt pancakes but $30 for 4th Masters 35+ nearly covered the $35 fee. If I pre-registered I would have turned a profit. Of course the depreciation expense for my @seven_cycles #sevencycles Mudhoney and other gear wipes out any long term gains! Bring on cross season and the mud! #teamhorstsports #precisionmachining a stainless steel #aerospace fitting from solid round bar stock on our Citizen M32 #swissscrewmachine complete with threads, hex, and wire holes. #machining #instamachinist #cncmachining #cnc @horsteng #horstengineering #madeinconnecticut #madeinnewengland #madeinusa This is a stout rod end body made from #Inconel 718. We did the #centerlessgrinding and #threadrolling on our big machine. #manufacturing #instamachinist #machining #cncmachining #machining #aerospace #madeinusa #madeintheusa #madeinconnecticut #madeinnewengland #horstengineering @horsteng #centerlessgrinding a #titanium tie rod to prepare it for #threadrolling #aerospace #manufacturing #precisionmachining #machining #instamachinist #horstengineering #madeintheusa #madeinusa #madeinnewengland #madeinconnecticut @horsteng After work at #sterlingmachine today, I took a spin up to #Marblehead and went out on the Neck for the first time in 15 years. I raced the spring classic circuit race out there in 2000, 1996, and 1993. The race was a favorite. All I remember from those days was rain, wind, and sand in my teeth. Cool neighborhood. #sevencycles @trailrunningmom took the stage three win and overall title at the #EmeraldNecklace 3-Day Stage Race. 6:29:38 for the 32 mile course. Overall was 17:44:23 for the 80 +/- mike event. Great day! @ultraspire #ultraspire #pursuitstrong #teamhorstsports Thanks to Coach Al and Terry for coming! This will be a fun race report and blog post....later. The race is on between the #kayak and the #SUP Thanks to Marjorie for taking our kids on #LittleSunapee while I chased @trailrunningmom Now, we all head for the finish at Potter Place. #newhampshire Finally found @trailrunningmom at AS2 of the #EmeraldNecklace 3-Day #trailrunning Stage Race. She came through mile 19 in 3h45m. 13 miles to go in this final stage. 1st woman. Around 5th overall. More importantly, she says the #newhampshire trails are beautiful and having fun. #ultrarunning #ultraspire @ultraspire #teamhorstsports I missed @trailrunningmom at AS 1 of Stage 3 of the #EmeraldNecklace 3-Day Stage Race. She came thru as first woman and and in a group of men vying for 2nd spot overall at 8:53 A.M. That was 11 miles and a fair amount of road. The volunteers said she looked good. Next AS is in 8 miles but all trail. I'll go look for her. Then the finish in 13 miles. #trailrunning #ultrarunning #pursuitstrong #teamhorstsports @ultraspire #ultraspire
