Graduating College

May has been an exciting month for me, I ran my first barefoot marathon, and tomorrow, May 15th, I will be graduating college with my bachelors degree in business management with a concentration of healthcare management.  Being out of school for about 16 years and going back was a bit frightening at the time. I have to thank my wife, Erika, for really pushing, and motivating me to do this.  For the past 3 1/2 years I have been attending evening classes as a full-time student.  Between working full-time, and family this was a challenge, and at times extremely frustrating, but now it’s over, and I feel very proud of what i achieved. (I do have to take one summer course, but that I can live with.)

As far as running, I feel fully recovered from the marathon, I had a little ache in my right knee after a run, but that is starting to go away.   As far a races go, next on the list is the Fairfield, CT half marathon on June 26th.  I love this course, this will be third time running it, and second time running it barefoot.

My sweetie is proud of her snowman she made, or I should say Sammy as the name she gave him. Family skate day. My mom at a young 70 lacing up the skates! My favorite girl.
#mysweetie So intense. Power and strength to the max. Who says dinosaurs don’t exist. Sunday morning 3 mile barefoot run. Blowing the dust off the skins. I like to incorporate deadlifts with my back workout. This was my last set of 240lbs for 6 reps. Seeking that 300lb mark down the road.

It’s starting to warmup in the garage, 25 degrees this morning. “I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.” MLK 🔥
