2018 LEGO Family 5K Road Race & Children’s Fun Run

It had been three years since we last did the LEGO Family 5K Road Race & Children’s Fun Run. This is a popular event and we got shut out at least once when we missed registration.

The folks at LEGO Systems, Inc. in Enfield put on a good show and raise money for local children’s charities. The entry fee is $45, but you get bang for your buck and get to run with 600+ people in the 5K and hang out with several hundred more kids and family members.

Yesterday, I ran this fast, flat 5K loop for the first time. I’ve always watched. Debbie and Shepard have done it before, but yesterday, all four of us did it, including Dahlia. I jogged with Dahlia, Shepard ran easy (he had a XC meet on Friday and a CX race today), and Debbie pushed.

That earned her first place in her 40-49 age group because they don’t double dip and she was the second 40-year-old woman across the line. We got to spend time with the Lezon and Schulz families and saw many other folks that we know from the local running community.

We got some cool LEGO too!

Just happened to be walking by the restaurant where @trailrunningmom and I had our first date in 1999! We dropped off two-dozen old pairs of #trailrunning shoes next door. I eat a lot less pizza these days, and when I do, it’s #vegan so we are headed to @floraweha for dinner instead. 🏃‍♀️ 👠 ☔️

So content after our first family #skiing and #snowboarding #adventure in nearly two years. I missed last season with a bum leg. It was great to see that the kids progressed nicely during my absence from the slopes. We are looking forward to more mountain fun. @jiminypeak #jiminypeak #jiminypeeks #familybusiness #berkshires 🎿🏂 🏔

Fun to swing by @stoneagerockgym and see the kids climbing. 🧗‍♂️

My first ever The Ice Weasels Cometh was my 19th and final #cyclocross race of the season. I had a strong ride and was very happy considering that my second race of calendar 2018 (last race of last season) ended up with me breaking a leg. #iceweasels was a much better result and it’s great to finish with peak fitness. Doing most of the @zanksscx gave me a fresh reason to push through this cross season. Today’s race was a solo adventure but I saw lots of teammates and friends. #teamhorstsports #crossspikes #sevencycles @seven_cycles #zanksscx #horstengineering #crossisboss #lifedeathcyclocross
