Another barefoot 20 miler.

Today I ran my second 20 miler, which is my last long run before the marathon. According to the weather on Monday, today was supposed to be 55 degrees, and sunny, beautiful!  But it wasn’t.   It rained all day Wednesday into the night.  I woke up this morning to rain, darkness, and very cold.   Due to my somewhat spoiled nature, and stubbornness, I was pissed at the weather, and had no desire to run in footwear, it had to be barefoot.

So I geared up and  out the door.  It was 39 degrees, wet, and the rain stopped.   I was going to do 5 mile loops that would pass my house, just in case I need to get some footwear, but that plan went out the door, once I hit the road it was on. I was going for it barefoot.  I always doubt myself.    It was a solid run, and I could actually go out right now, at 10:30pm, and run another 4 miles.  But past my bedtime.    Off to Baltimore tomorrow with the family for a weekend getaway.  Celebrating my five year marriage anniversary.

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.
