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.

#Cyclocross season is winding down. It’s time...but I will still miss it when it’s over. The race days/weekends spent with the @the_ccap #teamhorstjuniorsquad has been awesome. Yesterday’s @nbx_bikes G.P. of CX was another great day. The conditions were fun and challenging and the racing was fierce. @horstcycling #teamhorstsports #crossisboss #nbxgp

Another awesome @manchesterroadrace #manchesterroadrace #shenipsitstriders #teamhorstsports
I attended the @manchesterroadrace press conference. Less than a week to go. Getting pumped. @horsteng is a Veterans Row sponsor. #manchesterroadrace #teamhorstsports #shenipsitstriders
Great fun @nohocx with the Livingston Family and our #cyclocross family. @horstcycling #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #crossspikes
Cross country #running is a platform to teach so many great lessons about fitness and life. It was great fun cheering the Bolton Bulldogs at the NEMSAC XC Championships. #trailrunning #crosscountry
Great day with #teamhorstsports at the Belltown Cross even if Wade had to put on his reading glasses to identify his prize! That’s the life of a Masters racer. #crossspikes @horstcycling #horstcycling #cyclocross
Good fun with the #teamhorstjuniorsquad at today’s @stage1cycling Belltown Cross. #crossspikes #horstcycling @horstcycling #cyclocross
Eneas Freyre from @ttendurance was proud of his lap one wreck and wanted the video posted. It helps that he recovered and went on to win the race (Masters 40+ @stage1cycling Belltown Cross). It’s a good lesson to get back up, straighten your bars, and start chasing. #crossisboss #lifedeathcyclocross #cyclocross
