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.
