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.
