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.

Shepard had an awesome two weeks at @troop25ct Camp Kirkham in #newhampshire Some of the learning included First Aid, Fish & Wildlife, Sports, Photography, and Swimming. It will be great to have him back home. @boyscoutsofamerica
Little D and I passed though our favorite state on the way to NH this morning. #vermont
I dusted off my #triathlon gear for the first time in more than two years. I had to wipe mold off my running shoes, and it felt good to wash my bike. It’s good to know I can still throw it down at 47 but I will admit that we all got thrashed by a talented 15-year-old Junior. At least I got my photo with him! I’m waiting for his Dad to message it to me. πŸ˜€ MY Dad even pulled out a vintage 2002 race shirt to honor the occasion. The weather at the @hmf_events Niantic Bay Triathlon was spectacular. We saw lots of old friends. πŸŠβ€β™‚οΈπŸš΄πŸ½πŸƒπŸΏ#teamhorstsports @horstcycling #shenipsitstriders @seven_cycles #sevencycles
We successfully got the kids to their camps. Then we had a nice adventure ride in the Quiet Corner including a section of the Air Line Trail and some Natchaug State Forest wandering. Our newish @seven_cycles Evergreens were built for rides like this. #teamhorstsports #shenipsitstriders #airlinetrail #natchaug #sevencycles #evergreening
