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.

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 Back in #hartford for #ctbizday with many business friends. #smallbusiness is the engine of our economy. @cbia_ @horsteng #horstengineering #familybusiness #manufacturing #aerospace #madeinconnecticut 🇺🇸 Last night, I got to listen to #RickRidgeway describe @patagonia and their mission in his own words as part of the @wornwear College Tour. @yalesustain hosted the event. I wrote a piece for my own blog and explained why I admire the company and how it inspires us @horsteng The restored plaster model of the Genius of #Connecticut stands in the Capitol rotunda. She dates back to 1877. I was here to represent @horsteng and the @cbia_ and talk health care cost containment with our local state senator. I got my points across, but even as we sat and talked, our health insurance costs rose. It happens every second of the very day. #cbia #horstengineering #smallbusiness I'll be back tomorrow for Connecticut Business Day. #ctbizday Early season training on the #railtrail with one member of the #teamhorstsports Junior squad. #hoprivertrail #horstspikes #islabikes #sevencycles #railtrail #hoprivertrail #trailrunning
