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 then. 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 don't remember my childhood birthday parties being like this! @usaninjachallenge_sw @usaninjachallenge #ninjachallenge Who wants to critique the form and technique of "Coach" @stephenhyde @the_ccap #Cyclocross Camp??? Good fun learning new skills with the adults and juniors. #horstspikes #crossspikes @horsteng #crossiscoming Thanks to @superacingurl and @stephenhyde for helping @sgoogins @hunterpronovost @hoyle_dave and Todd B. @the_ccap #Cyclocoss Camp. We all learned some new skills. @horsteng #horstspikes #crossspikes #crossiscoming #threadrolling some 1.250-8 UN-3A by 4.800 long Monel 400 (Nickel Copper Alloy) studs in one shot using nearly all of the available 40 tons of rolling pressure. We cut these threads last time, but this time we invested in the dies. Forming the threads makes them 30% stronger. This is for a naval application. #precisionmachining #machining #instamachinist #manufacturing #cncmachining #cnc #madeinconnecticut #madeinnewengland #madeinusa #horstengineering made these complete. Four times in five states (NH, VT, MA, CT, NY) in eight days, @trailrunningmom & I have tried to catch @meltzerkarl on his #appalachiantrail record attempt. We were within 20 minutes twice & despite crew clues, our good navigation skills & trail knowledge, we couldn't connect. That proves 1) this trail & the mountains of the northeast are a big part of our lives considering that we were able to try during the course of our regular activity 2) that the elusive #speedgoat is fast! For us, someday #hiking the #at end to end is inevitable. Go Karl!!!! #trailrunning #ultrarunning "Tin Soldier" visual inspection on these stainless steel sleeves. They go into a next generation business jet engine. #precisionmachining #machining #instamachinist #cnc #cncmachining #manufacturing #madeinmassachusetts #madeinnewengland #madeinusa #sterlingmachine #horstengineering 10 Tuesday night races in 10 weeks! I was seriously cooked four weeks ago, but somehow pushed through and finished on a high note. #triathlon #swimming #mountainbike #trailrunning sufferfest #teamhorstsports #crossiscoming @trailrunningmom on our Sawyer Pond loop run this morning. #trailrunning #whitemountains #newhampshire My trusty @seven_cycles Kameha SLX before the awful 15 mile ride (cold + wet + wind blown) back to Shelburne to fetch the van after the #WildmanBiathlon Conditions were dismal for the point-to-point 10K road run/22.3 mile road bike/3 mile trail run with rain, wind, fog, and chilly air. Slick roads and four sets of train tracks to cross, wreaked havoc. @trailrunningmom and I got to check this one off of the list after many years trying to fit it in to the schedule. #teamhorstsports #whitemountains #shenipsitstriders #cycling #duathlon #trailrunning #sevencycles
