2011 NYC Barefoot Run.

This was a fun event.   I woke up at 5:00am to get ready and was out the door at 5:30am.   I have made the trip to NYC countless of times, but on this trip I got lost, real bad.   I won’t even go into details, but I will tell you I am horrible at directions, and it seems to get worse as i get older.  I might need to invest in a GPS system. I actually got really upset about it, so I wasn’t in the greatest of moods when i finally got to South Street, New York to catch tthe ferry.

One a positive note the ferry ride to Governors Island was really enjoyable.  I ran 11 miles, I was looking to do much more, but tweaked my foot last week. (I was jumping over lawn furniture and off tables barefoot messing around with my son in the back yard, and did something to my foot. I’m not in my 20’s anymore!).  So after 11 I gathered up my stuff,  had a few cold beers they were offering, Smutttynose, chilled out for a few and head back to catch the ferry.   I definitely will go back next year.

My reactions exactly. Happy Birthday to my boy Andrew who turns 11 today.  There he is at 3 joining me at the finish of my first marathon.  I was about 50 yards from the finish line, spotted him in the crowd and wave and out he shoots to join me to the finish line. Such an awesome memory I will never forget. This is great! The Cove. Barefoot running and gravel paths!? Call it a nice massage on the feet. I never tried or thought about deadlifts when younger. Now at the ripe age of 46 I discovered how awesome they are.  With 3 weeks in I hit 190lbs for 5 reps on my last set. Thanks to my son for the recording.
