2014 Hoppin’ Hodges 5K

It wouldn’t be Easter in these parts without the tradition of running the Hoppin’ Hodges 5K. With Debbie way under the weather and me nursing very sore legs after yesterday’s Traprock 50K, our participation of looking grim. That was until we convinced a representative (in the form of our 7-year old son) to run.

The truth is that he didn’t need much convincing. Of course, it didn’t really dawn on him until he finished that he was the only one in the family running. The Silk City Striders were out in force, though we were missing some of our stalwarts who (with this late 2014 Easter) are in Boston for tomorrow’s marathon.

Oh, and it doesn’t get much better than running (or walking) on the Rail Trail in Vernon, Connecticut on a Sunday morning.
