New England Trail

Last weekend was Trails Day Weekend. In Connecticut, we had a fantastic two days of activities capped off by an awesome New England Trail Gateway Dedication in Guilford.

On Saturday, the Livingston’s participated in two events in our hometown of Bolton. Both were well attended. Connecticut Trails Day is coordinated by the Connecticut Forest & Park Association (CFPA). I am a member of CFPA’s Board of Directors and Horst Engineering is a long time supporter.

The Gateway will be built just off the beach at Chittenden Park where the New England Trail begins/ends depending on your perspective. Most consider the southern terminus to be the start, so we will assume that the Gateway is at the beginning.

The entire CFPA staff and many volunteers put countless hours into both Trails Day Weekend and the Gateway dedication. It was a wonderful weekend for CFPA.

The NET is a wonderful trail. I’ve been on it several times in 2014. The Traprock 50K uses portions of the NET that pass through Penwood State Park. The 7 Sisters Trail Race is out and back on the NET in the Mt. Holyoke Range of Massachusetts. An end-to-end hike of the 215 mile NET is definitely on the “to do” list. There aren’t many overnight accommodations, but that should change over time. The CFPA and Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC)are both seeking solutions to this problem. It was great to see two of my favorite organizations, CFPA and AMC working so well together.

Stay tuned and get out on the NET!

He presented @racemaniaexpo @bostonu this morning. #markallen #ironman #triathlon Coach Al and @trailrunningmom demonstrate a proper front #plank and illustrate true #functionalstrength at their #trailrunning camp at @camphazenymca Campers had a day packed full of learning, exploring many other topics: descending technique, pacing, mental strength, nutrition, essential oils, and injury prevention. They even did pre-dinner #yoga and I joined them!  #fitinspiration #teamhorstsports #shenipsitstriders #ultrarunning #pursuitstrong Our version of the Poggio...after 10 years of waiting, I think we found a new training partner in the household to join @trailrunningmom and me...at least on the easy days. I'll take advantage now since in another 10 years, I'll be the one getting dropped. #horstspikes #cycling @islabikesusa #islabikes #teamhorstsports #boltonheritagefarm #bolton #Connecticut L to R: Places 2, 4, and 3 at the frigid  #BoltonRoadRace We had lots of fun. The best part is that I tower over the crew in this photo! #shenipsitstriders #silkcitystriders #teamhorstsports #railtrail #vernon #Connecticut @seven_cycles #sevencycles #teamhorstsports
