2010 Southport, CT 5mile Turkey Trot

I think this was my 13th consecutive year running this annual turkey trot, and my second year running it barefoot.   My sister and I usually run this race together, it’s tradition.   This year my sister didn’t run, she has been extremely busy with her infant twins, and just wasn’t ready.   So I decided to go for a good time.

I got 2 hours of sleep the night before the race, my little boy is sick and was up all night.   I wake up at 6:30am feeling suprisingly pretty good, because my adrenaline was pumping.     I wore my tights,  but changed in the car to my running shorts, it was 30 degrees at race time, so pretty warm and decided to ditch the tights.    I wore socks while I walked to the starting line, and while waiting,  they did help.

There was 3980 people running this race, the first two miles were a bit frustrating.  It was a constant battle of filtering through people.   The first mile was at a 9:10 pace, not good!   After mile 2, I finally had more run to settling in to the pace I wanted.

My time was 36:55, pace 7:23.    Was 413 out of 3980.   Somewhat happy with my time but could have done better,  next time I need to line up way in the front to avoid the mess in the beginning.  But next year it’s back to a casual run, because my sister will be back, which is all good with me!

First snow of the season. My son and I at the finish of the 5 mile Turkey Trot Rusty as a bag of nails, but it’s a good outlet. 5 mile Turkey Trot tradition. 20+ years running this race with my sister. My son made his debut today, fantastic job! Deadlifts. This was my last set of 225lbs, a new PR.
135 x 10 warm up
185 x 6
195 x 7
205 x 6
225 x 5

Had my son Andrew @parkor_boy23 filming and working out with me as well. Finally Optimal Nutrition comes out with a plant based protein.  Most protein powder has a lot of garbage in it, artificial flavors, gluten, dextrin, soy etc. which I try to avoid. I’m not a Vegan/Vegetarian but like a clean supplement. The taste is spot on. Not grainy or “earthy” tasting.  Very happy with this.
#optimumnutrition First cold barefoot run of the season. 25F and the sun was shining, felt good.
#barefootrunning 5am Workout.
I don’t have heat In my garage it was a crisp 32 degrees, but don’t mind.  Some benefits of having a home gym is no travel time, no people, and you can wear your comfies.
This was my last set of benching at 170lbs Fall fun.
