Chester 4 on the 5th Road Race

Today we returned to the Chester 4 on the 4th Road Race for the first time since 2012. I didn’t run it in 2012, but Debbie did. My last time running was actually in 2010. That’s a long time ago.

This year was my 9th time running since since 2001 but most of those runs were in the 2000’s. This was the first time the kids got to run which was pretty cool.

Every six years, the race is on the 5th instead of the 4th. That happens when the 4th falls on a Sunday. After five straight days of rain, we finally had a dry day. It was foggy and overcast, but the temperature was mild.

Debbie and Shepard both had strong runs. I had no shot at keeping up with Shepard. Dahlia also ran well. My father and nephew came out to watch us, which was cool. Chester is a picturesque village.

We hadn’t run a road race in a while, so it was fun to do another. In a normal year, there would have been more than 500 runners in the field. The numbers were down a bit, but folks were having fun.

From last weekend’s Osceola’s hike.
Dahlia’s switch plate business got a boost at yesterday’s @coventryfarmersmarket This week was the Kid’s Market for budding entrepreneurs honing their skills. She sold a bunch of “stock” plates and did three customs on the spot. Her business is DL Designs and @trailrunningmom helps with the accounting (cash, PayPal, etc.) and shipping. Upgrade your boring 💡 switch plates today! #business #entrepreneur #coventryfarmersmarket
Saddle Peak out and back at sunrise was really cool. @trailrunningmom and I pushed it. #trailrunning
Bolton Summer XC Series Finale #trailrunning
I missed the start of last night’s Bolton Summer XC Series race and wasn’t feeling too hot, but I decided to run anyway. I was thrilled to catch up to Janit, who was bringing up the rear, but IN STYLE. Rather than “make the pass,” I just ran with her. We chatted about everything…trail running, triathlon, vaccines…life. I’ve said it before and will say it again. She is an absolute legend.
We finally had some fantastic weather conditions for a weeknight race. The third #laketerramuggus #triathlon of 2021 was a blast. It was my first Lake T since 2017. @trailrunningmom did her first road tri in a long time (ever?) and @laurab_312 was her biggest cheerleader. There were a LOT of competitors. @missionfitnessglastonbury did a fine job with race production. Our friends from @bicycleseastct supported the racers. Congrats to all. #teamhorstsports #hartfordextendedareatriathletes @horstcycling

@trailrunningmom scorched the final 10 miles. I made the 90 minute drive back to the finish and then ran out to meet her with six or so to go. We hammered the final rocky descent and then accelerated on the infernal five miles of dirt road that led to the finish. Time was about 27h54m @bighorn100 @bighorntrailrun #bighorn100 #shenipsitstriders #teamhorstsports @ultraspire #ultraspire #trailrunning #ultrarunning
