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!

Day one of the @the_ccap Junior #Cyclocross Camp was awesome. #horstspikes #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #lifedeathcyclocross #crossiscoming @trailrunningmom led another successful #Yoga at #Sunset for the #boltonlandtrust This year's venue was the #BoltonHeritageFarm It's been a tradition to move to a new spot each time. I got my first #cyclocross ride of the year in too! #yogini #yogi #shavasana Sightseeing on my second favorite road in #Connecticut #grassyhill #cycling #bicycle #sevencycles #horstengineering Camp was swell! @thecubscouts @boyscoutsofamerica #cubscouts #boyscouts #junenorcrosswebster I visited the new HQ of the @appalachianmountainclub that is under construction at 10 City Square in #Charlestown I had to ride by the #BunkerHill Monument at the end of the #FreedomTrail #Boston #sevencycles First time at the People's Forest Trail Race since 2011. This first image is the look of a dejected man who lost 25 minutes with a wrong turn on a big descent. That's costly in an 11 kilometer race. Even worse is that @trailrunningmom is the one who led him (and two other runners) off course! They survived. It was a nice day on the #FarmingtonRiver. #trailrunning #teamhorstsports #shenipsitstriders 🏃🏻⛰🏆 Another great #sunset at #windingtrails Two distant pre-swim thunderclaps turned the race into a #Duathlon which suited me just fine! It's nice to not come into T1 with a two minute deficit. #Triathlon #mountainbiking #trailrunning #teamhorstsports Once again, @trailrunningmom took the cookie prize for winning the special summit competition at the finish line of the #shenipsitstriders #SoapstoneAssault Here is a picture of a picture of myself taking a picture. @cwoodside59 put together a nice piece for the @ctforestandparkassociation quarterly. I'm looking forward to my next #carfreecommute #selfie #bicycle
