2016 Connecticut Trails Day

Yesterday was National Trails Day. The Connecticut Forest & Park Association coordinated 223 events this weekend. Debbie and the Bolton Land Trust hosted a Family Fitness Hike at Bolton Heritage Farm (Rose Farm) in our hometown. Rose Farm is a local gem. I’ve written about it many times. The Bolton Summer XC Series will once again be on Wednesdays starting later this month. Horst Engineering has been a longtime sponsor of Connecticut Trails Day.

We had a decent turnout for the hike. Debbie and our kids led the group on a .75 mile walk around the farm with multiple stops to perform exercises including agility drills, pushups, squat jumps, and burpees. It was a lot of fun. The weather was fantastic. It was quite warm and we had brilliant sunshine. Debbie, the kids, and I live nearby, so they were able to ride their bikes to the farm while I jogged over.

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.
