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,  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.

#shenipsittrail On the road again. @seven_cycles #sevencycles #teamhorstsports #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
