2015 Shenipsit Striders Moonlight Run

It had been several years since I made the Shenipsit Striders Moonlight Run. The tradition has lasted 29 years. The fun run is always held on the Saturday night closest to the February full moon.

Tonight, 14 runners and two dogs showed up on a starry night to run on the snowy trails of Shenipsit State Forest. The temperature was hovering around 12F. The run started at 11:30 A.M., so I’m blogging at 1:40 A.M. on the 1st of February. Rabbit, rabbit.

It was a great way to start end January and start February. The huge snowstorm earlier in the week dumped 20 inches of snow on the forest. The single track had been tramped on by snowshoers. The dirt roads had been driven on by snowmobiles. We did a four mile loop that included a trip to the fire tower at the top of Soapstone Mountain.

#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 My favorite #denmother at the @thecubscouts Pack 157 Blue & Gold Dinner this past Friday. She even won the 50/50 raffle with one of these tickets. #cubscouts
