2015 Bolton Road Race

This year’s Bolton Road Race was bigger than ever. It’s a great hometown race that has grown dramatically during the past three years under the stewardship of Dani and Ned Kennedy. The Kennedy’s with support from Bolton High School Track & Field, the Bolton Booster Club, and a cadre of volunteers have done a great job reviving this classic 5-miler.

Horst Engineering is proud to be a repeat sponsor of the race. All four Livingston’s competed. Debbie pushed our daughter in our Chariot CX-1 jog stroller while I ran with our son. It was his second year doing this race. Five miles are a bit far for him, but he toughed it out.

We are going to miss the stroller when it is retired for good. Fortunately our daughter is “petite” and we still get to push her on occasion. Over the past eight years, we have loved the use of these strollers/trailers. They are awesome inventions and kept us active despite having young children.

I took the day off from photography, so I don’t have much to show. I just wanted to enjoy the camaraderie of the running community on a great day. The weather was forecast to be mild, but we ended up having three seasons spread out over five miles. It was cool and cloudy before the start. With two minutes to gun time, it was snowing like crazy. We got hit with a wild and windy squall that was just perfect. That last two miles (all headwind and crosswind) and then it started to clear. By the finish, the sun was peeking out from behind the clouds and the weather warmed up considerably.

Scott Mindel took the win in a blistering fast 26:47 on a hilly course with a rough road surface. Melissa Stellato was first woman and 9th overall in a equally fast 30:14. She was following up on her impressive third (overall) at the Colchester Half Marathon last week.

I love conditions like we had at Bolton. Everyone else appeared to like it too. It was fitting that after a viscous winter, we were still getting hammered by bad weather in mid-March. Thank you to Dani, Ned, the volunteers, and fellow sponsors for supporting the event.

    Excellent to see (well, “read about”) the full fam being out there together. In the long run, there’s really nothing more important than that!

Last night, we slept in a tent and dinner came out of our snack bag. Tonight, we have a real bed and dinner @eatfarewell was fantastic. I made progress towards replenishing the 4,852 calories that I burned at the #promiseland50k ++ #eatfarewell #vegan #tricycle washingtondc πŸƒπŸ»πŸš΄πŸ½ #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. πŸ‡°πŸ‡·πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ Small goalie.
