Banff & Kripalu

It had been a few years, but we finally made it to another showing of the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour. One of these years, we will actually get to Banff, but for now, we will have to settle for the traveling tour. We had a conflict with the Connecticut dates, so we went to Lenox, Massachusetts to see the show at the high school. The event was hosted by the Arcadian Shop for the 20th year in a row.

We saw some friends at the showing, which wasn’t unexpected, considering we are members of the Western Massachusetts Athletic Club, and do a lot of trail running in the Berkshires. All of the films were good, but this year, I was particular impressed with the mountain bike film, Strength In Numbers, produced by Anthill Films. My favorite part of the film was the segment about the Aptos, California “Post Office Jumps.” It is very cool.

Our kids really enjoyed the films, though it was a late night for them. We changed them into their pajamas at intermission, which was a good strategy. Prior to the show, we had dinner at Kripalu, which was fantastic. I hadn’t been there in a while, though Debbie spent a weekend their last month. She spent a month there more than a decade ago, and is a Kripalu Certified Yoga Teacher. I remember visiting her in 2000 when she got certified. It was a very different place back┬áthen. The yoga boom has led to the transformation of Kripalu in a serious way.

The cafeteria is as good as ever, and the vegan options are awesome. The place has a great vibe. I could have sat there all night sipping a cup of tea, but Banff was the main event. I can’t wait to get back.

I finally caught up with my likeness at the @hmf_events Niantic Bay #Triathlon today. I heard about the #hartfordmarathon trailers (there are two) but hadn't seen my mug shot(s). It was a fantastic race on one of my favorite courses. #teamhorstsports @seven_cycles #sevencycles @runhmf This Valve Cap has always been one of my favorites. We are making it complete from 6061-T6 aluminum bar on our twin-turret/twin-spindle Eurotech multi-axis lathe. After Deburring and cleaning, it gets anodized (subcontracted to a key supplier) and then a steel helical insert is installed. #Aerospace #cnc #cncmachining #instamachinist #precisionmachining #machining #manufacturing #madeinnewengland #madeintheusa #Swissscrewmachining these Center Tubes complete from C1018 steel bar on a  Citizen L32. #cnc #cncmachining #precisionmachining @horsteng #horstengineering #instamachinist #madeinnewengland #madeintheusa Today is our #CareerFair and recruiting Open House @horsteng We are also working hard to introduce the next generation of workers to our industry.

Definitely not a vegan trophy...but a nice hard earned handmade memento. @trailrunningmom was 5th in the Vertical Mile, 20th in the #Speedgoat50K and 1st in the Quadbanger. Better than @letourdefrance (which also ended today) she was first female in the final general classification (only woman to do all three). She saved her two hard falls until the last "stage." This woman is all blood and guts and the toughest chick I know! Our kids will get a kick out of the #Speedgoat trophy. #pursuitstrong @pursuitathlete @ultraspire #ultraspire @julbousa #ultraspire #teamhorstsports #teamlivingston Just before the start of #speedgoat50k #Quadbanger @snowbird @mikewardian doing the only thing he does nearly as much as running! Posting on #instagram #twitter and #facebook #speedgoat50k It's been fun hanging with all these crazy runners.
