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.

My daughter chose the hair piece, so I proved to her that I do have a sense of humor. #selfportrait

Good morning! 🚴🏽
I got to sample the fun activities at Boy Scouts @troop25ct Camp Kirkham. I slept under the amazing stars. We had a full agenda of geocaching, archery, cooking, disc golf, and paddling. I even squeezed in a run to the top of Silver Mountain where I had a 360 degree view. #boyscouts

It’s easy to love the infamous water (muck) crossing at the Trails to a Cure (Cockaponset Trail Race). We felt like sea monsters! I can’t believe how out of breath I was after fetching my camera at the finish and running the 1/4 mile back to catch @trailrunningmom and Shepard make their crossings. Either hey are getting faster or I am getting slower! Maybe more swim-run is in our future. πŸŠπŸ½β€β™€οΈπŸƒπŸ½β€β™€οΈ #shenipsitstriders #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #blueblazedtrail #trailrunning
