Jarts – A lost art

Jarts-ThenWho remembers Jarts?!   Probably the coolest lawn game ever invented, besides horseshoes.  On December 19, 1988, all lawn darts were banned from sale in the United States by the Consumer Product Safety Commission.  A game that my kids will never know, well that’s not true they still make the game, but it looks like this now, lame.

I guess good things can’t last forever.  I saw a set selling for $250 on ebay, which someone bought!  Wish I still had my set, I would never sell them.

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.
