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.

I got to sample the fun activities at Boy Scouts @troop25ct Camp Kirkham. I slept under the amazing stars. We had a full agenda of geocaching, archery, cooking, disc golf, and paddling. I even squeezed in a run to the top of Silver Mountain where I had a 360 degree view. #boyscouts
It was great fun cheering for the Bolton Center School XC Team and their coach @trailrunningmom at The Panther Fest. Go Bulldogs! #crosscountry #trailrunning 🏃🏽‍♀️ 🏃🏿

It’s easy to love the infamous water (muck) crossing at the Trails to a Cure (Cockaponset Trail Race). We felt like sea monsters! I can’t believe how out of breath I was after fetching my camera at the finish and running the 1/4 mile back to catch @trailrunningmom and Shepard make their crossings. Either hey are getting faster or I am getting slower! Maybe more swim-run is in our future. 🏊🏽‍♀️🏃🏽‍♀️ #shenipsitstriders #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #blueblazedtrail #trailrunning
Good fun kicking off the 2019 #cyclocross season at the #QuadCross It was also the launch of the 2019 @zanksscx which is my prime CX objective. #crossisboss @horstcycling #horstcycling #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #crossspikes #sevencycles
Yesterday’s late afternoon ride was fantastic. The #hoprivertrail to #airlinetrail to #charteroakgreenway is now my favorite loop. The natural beauty that starts right out my front door is proof that #connecticut trails are VERY underrated. I even got to share several miles with @pearljam09 #railtrail @eastcoastgreenway #eastcoastgreenway #bicycle #sevencycles #evergreening
Shepard had an awesome two weeks at @troop25ct Camp Kirkham in #newhampshire Some of the learning included First Aid, Fish & Wildlife, Sports, Photography, and Swimming. It will be great to have him back home. @boyscoutsofamerica
Little D and I passed though our favorite state on the way to NH this morning. #vermont
I dusted off my #triathlon gear for the first time in more than two years. I had to wipe mold off my running shoes, and it felt good to wash my bike. It’s good to know I can still throw it down at 47 but I will admit that we all got thrashed by a talented 15-year-old Junior. At least I got my photo with him! I’m waiting for his Dad to message it to me. 😀 MY Dad even pulled out a vintage 2002 race shirt to honor the occasion. The weather at the @hmf_events Niantic Bay Triathlon was spectacular. We saw lots of old friends. 🏊‍♂️🚴🏽🏃🏿#teamhorstsports @horstcycling #shenipsitstriders @seven_cycles #sevencycles
