2015 Bobby’s Run

This morning I did Bobby’s Run for the second time. Hosted by one of my favorite running clubs, the Silk City Striders, this eight mile race on a mix of rolling roads (including three miles of dirt). The loop around Snipsic (Shenipsit) Lake is lovely. I last ran this race in 2010, which was a banner sporting year for me. I was in the best shape of my life. That day, I pushed our Chariot CX-2 with both of our kids and finished in 53:30. Today, without the stroller, and five years older, I ran 51:05, which is not that much faster given the handicap I had with the stroller.

Even still, I really enjoyed this morning’s run, which was the 12th year for the race. I didn’t remember that the race was today until scrolling through my Facebook feed last night. Race Director, Bekkie Wright, posted about the race and I thought it would be a fun way to get in a workout and improve my running fitness. Bekkie and her partner, Joe Poliquin with help from several volunteers deserve credit for keeping this race going in Bob Bonadies’ memory. The low-key event wouldn’t happen without them and I’m glad they were issuing numbers, Β marshaling corners, manning aid stations, and taking photos.

Tomorrow is the Soapstone Mountain Trail Races. Soapstone always follows Bobby’s Run. I’m looking forward to a great day with my other favorite running club, the Shenipsit Striders.

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.
