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.

Our version of the Poggio...after 10 years of waiting, I think we found a new training partner in the household to join @trailrunningmom and me...at least on the easy days. I'll take advantage now since in another 10 years, I'll be the one getting dropped. #horstspikes #cycling @islabikesusa #islabikes #teamhorstsports #boltonheritagefarm #bolton #Connecticut L to R: Places 2, 4, and 3 at the frigid  #BoltonRoadRace We had lots of fun. The best part is that I tower over the crew in this photo! #shenipsitstriders #silkcitystriders #teamhorstsports #railtrail #vernon #Connecticut @seven_cycles #sevencycles #teamhorstsports Back in #hartford for #ctbizday with many business friends. #smallbusiness is the engine of our economy. @cbia_ @horsteng #horstengineering #familybusiness #manufacturing #aerospace #madeinconnecticut 🇺🇸 Last night, I got to listen to #RickRidgeway describe @patagonia and their mission in his own words as part of the @wornwear College Tour. @yalesustain hosted the event. I wrote a piece for my own blog and explained why I admire the company and how it inspires us @horsteng The restored plaster model of the Genius of #Connecticut stands in the Capitol rotunda. She dates back to 1877. I was here to represent @horsteng and the @cbia_ and talk health care cost containment with our local state senator. I got my points across, but even as we sat and talked, our health insurance costs rose. It happens every second of the very day. #cbia #horstengineering #smallbusiness I'll be back tomorrow for Connecticut Business Day. #ctbizday Early season training on the #railtrail with one member of the #teamhorstsports Junior squad. #hoprivertrail #horstspikes #islabikes #sevencycles #railtrail #hoprivertrail #trailrunning
