2015 LEGO Family 5K Road Race & Children’s Fun Run

For the second year in a row, our family participated in the LEGO Family 5K & Children’s Fun Run at LEGO’s North American headquarters in Enfield, Connecticut. Debbie and I returned from Japan late last night (via Boston) and were a bit jet-lagged, but we wouldn’t miss the opportunity to run with our kids at this fun event.

The weather was atrocious, with intermittent rain and a cold temperature. It was raw, but the promise of LEGO swag and lots of fun, drew more than 500 runners to this sold out event. Debbie was pretty knackered, but that didn’t stop her from pushing. She amazes me. Six days after running 180 kilometers at ULTRA-TRAIL Mt. FUJI, albeit at a slower pace, she hammered for another 5 kilometers this morning and got first in her age group. She was awarded a nice LEGO plaque.

Our son got his 5K PR last year and this year he shaved 59 seconds off of that time for another PR. There was a one mile kids fun run followed by a 1/4 mile kids fun run. Once again, Henry Domnarski dominated the men’s race. He was followed by Eric Silva and Nathan Kucera. Jennifer McHale was the first woman. She was followed by Melissa Roy, and then Debbie.

LEGO had a silent auction, raffle, and lots of gifts for the runners. Once again, they were very generous. Proceeds from the race will benefit Camp Courant.

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 🏃🏻🚴🏽 #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.
