2014 Scrooge Scramble

Today, our tradition of running the Scrooge Scramble on Christmas continued. It was a wonderfully mild morning after a rainy and windy night. The conditions were much better than last year’s frigid 5K. The field was a bit larger this year, which should mean the contributions (food, clothing, money, etc.) to the Cornerstone Foundation homeless shelter should be significant.

I love it when the running community comes together for a fun event, especially one with a great history. Mary Lou White, Janit Romayko, Ken Platt, and the other volunteers that make Scrooge so much fun were all on hand again.

This year was the 24th annual event in downtown Rockville. Several of our Silk City Striders and Shenipsit Striders friends were on hand.

Our son ran well. Debbie pushed our daughter, who alternated running and riding in the Chariot. We don’t get the jog stroller out nearly as often as we used to, so it was nostalgic. I jogged with Debbie and took photos. My foot is feeling a tad bit better. I last “ran” at the Manchester Road Race and before that, at a triathlon the first week in June. I’m ready to turn the corner and put my injuries in the past.

#shenipsittrail On the road again. @seven_cycles #sevencycles #teamhorstsports #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
