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.

Start of the @root66raceseries #DomnarskiFarm Junior 12-18 year old race. #root66raceseries #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #mountainbiking #mountainbike Beautiful June day in #Massachusetts For me, the #westrocksuperprestige highlight is always the youngest junior girls and boys. Here is the start of last night's Junior 9-11 year old Short Track #mountainbike race. This is the next generation of #cycling enthusiasts. @the_ccap #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #horstspikes #mountainbiking 🚵‍♀️🏆❤️ Not bad. Third place in the series for #singlespeed division after doing two of the four #westrocksuperprestige #mountainbike races. Fun just to ride strongly. #teamhorstsports #horstspikes @horsteng #mountainbiking @seven_cycles #sevencycles Incredible June night. One day after the #solstice for the #westrocksuperprestige finale. @the_ccap @horsteng #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #mountainbiking #solstice #railtrail ride:  #teamhorstjuniorsquad #teamhorstsports #hopriverstateparktrail #mountainbike The second (our first) #windingtrails Summer Off-Road #Triathlon Series race of the year was a big success. Three Livingston's raced including @trailrunningmom and the first "Grand Feast" of the season with the Schulz Clan helped us refuel. #teamhorstsports #mountainbiking #trailrunning I ran the #greylocktrailrace on #fathersday and @trailrunningmom loosened her legs after #manitousrevenge by running the 5K with Little D. Shep took 5+ minutes off of last year's time. #mountgreylock The Western Massachusetts Athletic Club had to share #greylockglen with the #harrypotter festival, which was kind of crazy. It was a weird combination of people. I'm sticking with he  #trailrunning community. @trailrunningmom finished #manitousrevenge 54 miles in 14:41:32. Fantastic! She is pumped and primed for #hardrock100 next month. #teamhorstsports #shenipsitstriders #pursuitstrong #pursuitfitness #trailrunning @ultraspire #ultraspire @altrarunning #altrarunning #ultrarunning #catskillsmountains 🏃🏻⛰ Ben Nephew took the 54 rugged mile #manitousrevenge in 10 hours and 57 minutes. He said it was super slippery. @mountainpeakfitness #mountainpeakfitness #trailrunning #ultrarunning #catskillsmountains
