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.

Fantastic run and bike involving an end-to-end trip on the @ctforestandparkassociation #quinnipiactrail with @trailrunningmom We visited a bunch of conserved forest land including #sleepinggiantstatepark and we rode the Farmington Canal rail trail. #shenipsitstriders @horstcycling #teamhorstsports #trailrunning #cycling 🏃🏽‍♀️ 🚴🏽
‪Over the last 10 weeks, I filled my Subaru’s gas tank four times. In the prior 10 weeks, I filled it 13 times. I’ve gone to work every day @horsteng but my other travel stopped. Both the pandemic and my cycling have been major factors. #carfreecommute #cycling #sevencycles ‬#teamhorstsports #horstengineering #bicycle
Friday evening date with @trailrunningmom 💕 🚴🏽 #teamhorstsports #cycling
A good day on the #nipmucktrail with @trailrunningmom We went End-To-End from the southern terminus of the East Branch to the northern terminus at the MA border. #shenipsitstriders #teamhorstsports #trailrunning 🏃🏽‍♀️
The weather during this week’s rides (and run) has been absolutely frightful. The pictures show the various “calms” before and after the various storms. My timing has been good. #carfreecommute #teamhorstsports #shenipsitstriders 🌍 🚴🏽🏃🏿
