2018 Scrooge Scramble

Our Christmas morning tradition is to spend time with our friends from the local running community while supporting the Cornerstone Foundation by running the Scrooge Scramble 5K.

We returned to Rockville, Connecticut for the 13th time. Most of them have been with our kids. We used to push them in the Chariot, but now, they run on their own. This wonderful fundraiser drew a nice crowd on a sunny morning.

Like last year, we did a modified six loop course in downtown Rockville that started and finished in front of the shelter. It was cold and breezy, but as I mentioned, the sun shone brightly. Spirits were high. Shepard and I pushed the pace while Debbie ran with Dahlia. They pushed the pace too!

Shepard finished one lap early by mistake, but he went back out and did his sixth lap after realizing that he beat me and that shouldn’t have been. The results aren’t sorted out yet, but we will send them a note.

I hadn’t run hard in a very long time, so this was a fun, but rude awakening. My legs will pay the price for running hard on pavement. It’s good to see that after nearly a full year, I’m feeling good again. The running form will come if I put some time into it. Right now, I’m relying on my cycling fitness, which is pretty good.

In conclusion, this was a lot of fun for a good cause and the volunteers and sponsors, including Platt Systems (timing) deserve a lot of credit for keeping this race going.

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. πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ πŸ‘  β˜”οΈ

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 πŸŽΏπŸ‚ πŸ”

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
Sunshine! β˜€οΈ Despite what others may say... #cyclocross in December is SO much better when it is sunny. Today @nbx_bikes Gran Prix of Cyclocross, Day 1, it was cold but clear and dry. I wouldn’t call it a beach day, but it was pretty good. I’m not so sure about Day 2 forecast for tomorrow. #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #nbxcx #crossspikes #crossisboss 🚴🏽
