2 hour barefoot run.

Woke up at 4:45am this morning to get my run in. My wife has a continuing education class all day today and tomorrow, it’s a weekend of just me and my boys.   The temp was 38 degrees when I left the house, with 25 mph winds.  The wind chill made it feel much colder, but my feet felt fine throughout the whole run.

I did get a tiny shard of glass in my foot from a barefoot run two days ago,  I don’t like to dig it out right away, I wait a couple of days to let it rise to the top more.  But really all depends on how uncomfortable it is.  Having that shard in there wasn’t a big deal, I got a few stingers at times when I hit some chip-n-seal and hit the spot right on.   I battled 25 mph headwinds the whole run, that was a bit challenging and exciting at the same time.  I really dig wind, it’s like God stirring things up, it’s thrilling.

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.
