2013 Little Manchester Road Race

Yesterday’s Know Your Pace Race was followed by the Little Manchester Road Race. It was reported that nearly 600 kids race the sold out races. There was a 1/2 mile, 1 mile, and 2 mile race depending on your age and running desires.

Our four-year old daughter did the 1/2 miler. Our seven-year old decided to “save his legs” for the 4.748 mile MRR on Thursday. It was an awesome day in Manchester with all kinds of action.

The kids were all smiles. Just prior to the race, three skydivers leapt from an  airplane and landed right near the start/finish line. It was a grand entrance. The races were led by a bunny. The bag piper was another big hit. A big thank you t the organizers for doing this Little MRR for the third time. We have been every year. Each kid got a sweatshirt and a medal.

Special thanks to the area cross-country and track & field teams who volunteered their time: Eastern Connecticut State University, University of Hartford, and Manchester High School. Those kids were having fun too!

The Race Expo was jam-packed. The last 1,000 entrants to the Manchester Road Race had to show up in person to complete an application because online/mail entry closed earlier in the week. It was cold, but bright sunshine made the day even better. The Little Manchester Road Race is sweet!

#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
