Colony Grill Hot Oil 5K

Sunday I ran a 5k with my sister (Kate) and brother-in-law (Chris).   This was my first barefoot 5k, and Kate and Chris’ first race ever, which was exciting.  I think the last time I ran a 5k was when I was about 9 years old or so.   The race started at 9:00am and the temperature was about 48 degrees, I wore some heavy socks while walking around and waiting at the start line for take off.     My gimpy foot was still not 100% going into this race but the adrenaline got the best of me, my time was 23:06. I haven’t ran that fast in a long time and tweaked my foot again, so looks like a few more days of rest.   I have a 5 mile race on Thanksgiving, then after that I am going to shut it down for a good month of taking it real easy.  I need to get this foot back to 100%.

I saw Kate and Chris come in to the finish and both looked really good!   Colony Grill is a pizza restaurant that sponsored this race, so it was free pizza and beer at 10:00am for the runners!

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 🔥
