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 Β 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!

Livingston Family firefighters. πŸ”₯ πŸ‘©β€πŸš’ πŸš’ When @trailrunningmom β€œsmoked” the obstacle course AND added some push-ups for good measure, the Chief pulled out his business card and made a pitch for her to join the squad. I thought I was the competitive one, but she can turn anything into a competition! The kids had a blast too at family day.
