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.

Olivia's first go at soccer. When you work right next door to a Crossfit gym, what else to do on break? Happy Easter! Spring running, goodbye winter gear. Just me and my girl. 7.1 mile barefoot run. Time: 103. Pace: 8.57. A little fishing with the boys. Can't stay inside forever on this cold, rainy spring day.
#runbarefootintherain Heading home during my run and I see this guy standing in the middle of the road with a tripod and camera. This was about as random as you can get. Having fun on my nephews drum kit.
