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.

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
