2013 Silk City Cyclocross

My cyclocross season kicked off today at the Silk City Cyclocross, the first race in the Connecticut Series of Cyclocross. It isn’t easy to transition from 5-10 hour races to 45 minute races, but I’m going to try. It will take me a few more races to figure things out and develop the fitness required for such intense efforts. I have to work on my bike handling skills too, but I’ve been doing cross for 18 years. It will come back.

It was great to see so many friends at the race. Of all the cross races in New England, this is the closest cross race to my house, so I rode the eight miles to and from Manchester Community College, which is a fun venue. It was warm and dry, so the technical course was fast and dusty. Team Horst Engineering was well represented in both the Men’s 45+ and Men’s 35+ races. Matt Domnarski and Wade Summers had stellar results, taking first and second in the 45+.

A second year tradition, the noon-time kids race was a blast for the little ones and both of our children did the 10 minute race on a short course.

#atl Starting the 2017 #trailrunning season in style...and on a Monday morning in the #caribbean to add to the fun! @trailrunningmom won the 13.8 mile #stjohntrailrace in 2:37. She wasn't far behind me. The @virginislandsnps trails were gnarly and it was hot. #teamhorstsports #shenipsitstriders @altrarunning #altrarunning @ultraspire #ultraspire @julbousa #julbousa #family #hiking #stjohnusvi @virginislandsnps #virginislandsnps Nice colors on our early A.M. flight. #md88 #JT8D #aerospace #sunrise ☀️ I'm pumped! I scored 47 vintage @appalachianmountainclub #Appalachia Journals (various issues between 1916-1979) with a #craigslist purchase. The process started with a #google Alert, and then after an email inquiry, followed by a text, and then a call; the terms were set. Hours later I pulled off the Mass Pike on my commute home from #sterlingmachine and did the deal in a commuter lot. I was fascinated by the seller's full time career in dealing ephemera and other collectibles. I'll add these to the stack of unread magazines, including the 10 boxes of vintage @natgeo magazines I scored years ago that @trailrunningmom keeps asking me where I plan to store them. We need more bookshelves. I've been getting Appalachia via mail twice/Year for 20 years and it has been published continuously since the #appalachianmountainclub founding in 1876. We wrapped up this snowy week with an afternoon #snowshoe "commute" to Little D's @girlscouts Brownie meeting and back. We are quite fortunate to have trails right out our front and back doors. #carfreecommute #boltonheritagefarm #rosefarm My favorite #denmother at the @thecubscouts Pack 157 Blue & Gold Dinner this past Friday. She even won the 50/50 raffle with one of these tickets. #cubscouts
