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!

Ran the Fairfield CT half marathon this morning. Came in with a time off 1:50:12.  This  was my 8th consecutive year running this race, and barefoot. My training was super light. Maybe 12-15 miles per week with no speed training, or fancy workouts, all runs were slow. I started lifting weights again, and noticed a big difference with running. The weight training is what pulled me through. The best snack/protein bar out there. Definitely no BS.

Street Art. Friday evening at the beach. My little sweetie is growing up.  We were stuck in traffic and I snapped a quick picture of her and it's crazy to notice the changes of your children at certain points.
