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.

#promiseland50k was hot and hard. Both @trailrunningmom and I suffered badly. I told her that I'm "sticking with cycling" from now on! We didn't even check the results, which is fine because we are happy to just have finished. It was a beautiful course. It totaled 34 miles with 14,000 feet of elevation gain and loss. #ultrarunning #trailrunning #shenipsitstriders #teamhorstsports #virginia #blueridgemountains @trailrunningmom at #naturalbridgestatepark #bear Start of the @root66raceseries Junior Cat 3 #FatTireClassic #mountainbike #root66 Our kids have some classmates earning #taekwondo #tkd #blackbelt #bling at today's belt test. 🇰🇷🇺🇸 Small goalie.
