Born with form.

I’m currently getting ready for a half marathon in June and had a nice 10 mile run on Sunday.  Coming home my 3 kids saw me running down the road and they all ran out, all barefoot as well, to greet me.  It was really cool, I wish I could have captured that picture.  So I said to my 3-year-old daughter if she wanted to run up the road with me, my middle son had my phone and snapped this picture of us. Amazing how natural kids run barefoot, but we all ran this way as kids.  I believe we are all born with a natural foot strike, but years of footwear diminishes that natural instinct, but can always be re-learned.

Ran the Fairfield CT half marathon this morning. Came in with a time off 1:50:12.  This  was my 8th consecutive year running this race, and barefoot. My training was super light. Maybe 12-15 miles per week with no speed training, or fancy workouts, all runs were slow. I started lifting weights again, and noticed a big difference with running. The weight training is what pulled me through. The best snack/protein bar out there. Definitely no BS.

Street Art. Friday evening at the beach. My little sweetie is growing up.  We were stuck in traffic and I snapped a quick picture of her and it's crazy to notice the changes of your children at certain points.
