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!

Sites and sounds from Day 2 @gpgloucester #gpgloucester The fog was burning off by the end of the Cub Juniors 9-14 year old race.

#horstspikes #cyclocross #lifedeathcyclocross #horstengineering #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #madeinconnecticut #madeinnewengland #madeinusa 🇺🇸 It was great to see so many friends at today’s Western #Massachusetts Athletic Club Monroe (Dunbar Brook) Trail Race. We all ran the 2-Miler. We couldn’t stay long after the finish, but we did see Kelsey Allen win overall in the 10.5 Mile main event. Hooray! #trailrunning 🏃🏻 Before and after the Western #Massachusetts Athletic Club’s Monroe (Dunbar Brook) Trail Race in the #Berkshires I rode (very wet) over from Savoy Mountain State Forest where we camped last night. On the ride along the #DeerfieldRiver I checked out #ZoarGap and then we walked down to the river to see the Tooth. Sadly, the kayakers had already passed through. The foliage turned overnight. #trailrunning #cycling 🚴🏽🏃🏻⛰ #Cyclocross racing in the morning and downhill #mountainbiking @thundermountainbikepark in the afternoon. We got in two late afternoon runs on rental bikes and are pumped to return for more fun in the future. #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #thundermountainbikepark #berkshireeast 🚵‍♀️⛰ 30 kids in the 9-12 year old Race at the #mansfieldhollow #Cyclocross That’s just awesome! @the_ccap #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #crossspikes #crossisboss This image was from pregame, but approaching halftime @uconnfootball there aren’t many more fans than you see here. 35 (Memphis ) to 21 (UCONN) is a lot of points in 30 minutes of #football #uconn This morning I got to hear Warren Rustand, inspirational entrepreneur and fellow @ypoglobal member, speak at a #ypo Connecticut River Valley Chapter meeting. It was fitting that the event was @riverfrontrecapture and literally ON the #connecticutriver I walked from @horsteng via my favorite train bridge. The 10 minute trip back to the plant was ample time to reflect on the #leadership lessons that he shared with our group. @garyrome and I decided that we should memorialize our time with this dedicated athlete, by requesting that he join our photo. #horstengineering #business Fantastic but FRUSTRATING race at The Night Weasels Cometh #cyclocross Was charging hard but punctured with two to go and rode 3/4ths of a lap on my rear flat before getting to my pit bike. I just glued this tubular two nights ago. Grrrr! Gave up more than a dozen spots. This string of bad luck will end and my fitness will pay off. Still not a bad ending to a work day. Onward! #teamhorstsports #crossspikes #nightweasels 🚴🏽 🌕 Good, inspiring, and educational fun at #MetalStorm in Sudbury. I couldn’t find a salesman to sell me a lathe, but I called one on his mobile, and ended up with FOUR coming to my rescue! That’s service. ;) #precisionmachining #robotics #machining #instamachinist #cncmachining #cnc #aerospace #manufacturing #horstengineering #sterlingmachine #crossspikes #madeinconnecticut #madeinmassachusetts #madeinnewengland #madeinusa 🇺🇸
