2015 Scrooge Scramble

Today was the 25th annual Scrooge Scramble 5 kilometer road race to benefit the Cornerstone Foundation in Rockville, Connecticut.

This race has been a Christmas Day tradition for our family for many years. We have been having record warm temperatures in New England. It was in the low-60’s Fahrenheit, which made for a very runner friendly race.

The crowd that showed up was certainly a record, and that is a good thing. The donations to the shelter/soup kitchen are likely to be a record too. We have run this race in frigid temperatures and snow, so today was a welcome reprieve from winter.

I chose to run hard for the first time in a long time and I’ll pay  the price the next few days. My quadriceps are shot. Debbie ran with our kids. She got her workout in when we dropped her off at the tunnel in Vernon so she could run the rail trail to the start. I brought my bicycle and road the same rail trail home. It was such a beautiful day, we wanted to spend as much time outside as possible.

It was great to see so many friends. Both the Shenipsit Striders and Silk City Striders were well represented.

Merry Christmas!

@trailrunningmom at the counter @veggiegalaxy where they serve breakfast all day long! #vegetarian #vegan #cambridge Great seeing fellow ultra-runners @spencer.farrar @mikewardian and @trailrunningmom @racemaniaexpo in #boston #trailrunning #ultrarunning "Looking back, 2:04 does sound better than 2:05."-- @ryanhall3 (Being interviewed by Dave McGillivray @racemaniaexpo in #boston ) #running Even though I've heard @markallengrip tell his 1989 @ironmantri World Championship story many times, I never tire of it. He presented @racemaniaexpo @bostonu this morning. #markallen #ironman #triathlon Coach Al and @trailrunningmom demonstrate a proper front #plank and illustrate true #functionalstrength at their #trailrunning camp at @camphazenymca Campers had a day packed full of learning, exploring many other topics: descending technique, pacing, mental strength, nutrition, essential oils, and injury prevention. They even did pre-dinner #yoga and I joined them!  #fitinspiration #teamhorstsports #shenipsitstriders #ultrarunning #pursuitstrong 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
