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.

Not many images from today's NECXBAR #cyclocross in #fitchburg today. I was happy to race, weather was great, and the most challenging course feature was the sand pit which had its own hairpin. Wade and I had fun racing together. I took a pedal to my right thigh, but I'm ready for the push with three more races in December...and then some rest. #teamhorstsports #horstspikes Mr. Curtiss' classic #shenipsitstriders t-shirt has quite the collection of #manchesterroadrace elite runners. He has been collecting for many years. Here he points out co-course record holder, John Treacy, one of my favorites. He added some new signatures at the pasta dinner last Wednesday. This shirt has some great names including Olympic gold medalists and world champions, all who have run the streets of Manchester. How many legends can you spot? #boltonlandtrust Walk of #Thanksgiving at the Sheridan Homestead. The oldest part of the house dates to 1730 and this barn to 1900. #bolton #connecticut #newengland Little D takes her #dreidel spinning too seriously! #spinagogue #majorleaguedreidel #nogeltnoglory My #goodfriday and #blackfriday tradition of taking a #yoga class taught by  @trailrunningmom I noticed that I was the only "boy" today. I should come more often. She would also like me to join her @kripalucenter for a weekend program. #kripalu My 70 hour old cousin (Little E) even has her own name tag at #thanksgiving dinner! My sister (the hostess) doesn't miss a beat! Eleanora doesn't get her own spot (lowest in seniority has to sit with her Mom), but that is still pretty cool.
