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.

First snow of the season. My son and I at the finish of the 5 mile Turkey Trot Rusty as a bag of nails, but it’s a good outlet. 5 mile Turkey Trot tradition. 20+ years running this race with my sister. My son made his debut today, fantastic job! Deadlifts. This was my last set of 225lbs, a new PR.
135 x 10 warm up
185 x 6
195 x 7
205 x 6
225 x 5

Had my son Andrew @parkor_boy23 filming and working out with me as well. Finally Optimal Nutrition comes out with a plant based protein.  Most protein powder has a lot of garbage in it, artificial flavors, gluten, dextrin, soy etc. which I try to avoid. I’m not a Vegan/Vegetarian but like a clean supplement. The taste is spot on. Not grainy or “earthy” tasting.  Very happy with this.
#optimumnutrition First cold barefoot run of the season. 25F and the sun was shining, felt good.

I don’t have heat In my garage it was a crisp 32 degrees, but don’t mind.  Some benefits of having a home gym is no travel time, no people, and you can wear your comfies.
This was my last set of benching at 170lbs Fall fun.
