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.

Only #mud puddle on the course. #trailrunning #blueblazed #shenipsitstriders @runcarlyrun Start of the Southern Nipmuck Trail Race. #ctwoodlands #blueblazed #shenipsitstriders #trailrunning @shenipsitstrdrs @trailrunningmom #nipmuck These #Aerospace rod end bodies  require some serious #threadrolling force from our 40-tom 2-die machine. 1.250-12 UNJF-3A x 4.00 inches long on 13-8 MO steel. We prepare the pitch diameter by #centerlessgrinding the blanks first. #manufacturing #cnc #cncmachining #instamachinist #horstengineering @horsteng #madeintheusa Our team roll threaded the larger 2.250-12 UNS-2A for strength per the customer's requirements. The customer made this special fitting from 303 stainless steel for an oil & gas application and we did the #threadrolling operation with the big inside diameter finished. #precisionmachining @horsteng #instamachinist #cnc #cncmachining #manufacturing #horstengineering #madeintheusa @trailrunningmom captured this image of our kids after they hunted down and intercepted @scottjurek #scottjurek and his entourage on the #appalachiantrail in the #berkshires this morning. #karlmeltzer is running shotgun in this image. Our kids kept pace for a mile or so. They were the caboose on this train! #shenipsitstriders #Trails #trailrunning #ultrarunning @appalachianmountainclub @appalachiantrail #teamlivingston Here we are #centerlessgrinding 6061 Aluminum tubing prior to the Swiss screw machine process that will convert the material into tie rods for an aircraft valve intake door. We send the full 12 foot bars through our Cincinnati #2 and remove .009 stock from the diameter in one pass. The tolerance is range is +/-.0003. #precisionmachining #instamachinist #cnc #cncmachining #Aerospace #manufacturing #horstengineering @horsteng #madeintheusa Three part assembly includes a chrome plated steel thrust bushing and two headless pins. This part goes in an #Aerospace engine starter. The pins are hardened and precision ground. The bushing has several #precisionmachining operations. #manufacturing @horsteng #cnc #cncmachining #horstengineering #madeintheusa #instamachinist Great spot on the North Shore of #boston Spent the afternoon at #sterlingmachine and then took my singlespeed @seven_cycles #sevencycles Sola on Cape Ann roads for an evening spin. Saw a LOT of roadies but I was the only guy on the SS mountain bike! The boats are in Beverly Channel/Mackerel Cove.
