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.

#promiseland50k was hot and hard. Both @trailrunningmom and I suffered badly. I told her that I'm "sticking with cycling" from now on! We didn't even check the results, which is fine because we are happy to just have finished. It was a beautiful course. It totaled 34 miles with 14,000 feet of elevation gain and loss. #ultrarunning #trailrunning #shenipsitstriders #teamhorstsports #virginia #blueridgemountains @trailrunningmom at #naturalbridgestatepark #bear Start of the @root66raceseries Junior Cat 3 #FatTireClassic #mountainbike #root66 Our kids have some classmates earning #taekwondo #tkd #blackbelt #bling at today's belt test. 🇰🇷🇺🇸 Small goalie.
