Stomach virus knocked me down.

Just like the movie “Outbreak” there has literally been a stomach virus invading Connecticut, and it’s nasty.   Both of my sons were sick last week, and my wife was ill as well.   Late sunday night, after my 20 mile barefoot run, I was starting to feel something take over me, and it did.    I actually ran 5 miles on Wednesday feeling weak and tired, and it was snowing!   Probably wasn’t a good idea.   I basically have been feeling ill with diarrhea since sunday night, and thursday night is when this virus peaked and beat my ass to the ground.   Constant diarrhea every 10 minutes for about 20 hours straight, at least I wasn’t throwing up, which is supposed to happen as well with this virus.   Today feel MUCH better, but tired and worn out. 

Looking to run tomorrow and get back to training, if you call it training.

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.
