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 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.
