New Haven, CT 20k Labor Day Road Race – 9/1/14

I have two races in the year that I never like to miss my town’s half marathon, and this one.  This race has some special meaning because it was my first race I ran barefoot which was over 10 miles 5 years ago.

I was lacking sleep the night before the race because my beautiful 4 month year old daughter is just not sleeping well at night, so I had about 4 hours of sleep. That was fine the garmin was staying home and the only goal was to completely enjoy the race.  I really love the atmosphere of this race, New Haven is a really cool city the route takes you through every part of the city, so it’s a fun course. The weather was very hot and humid at the start of the race.  I really love the warm weather, but will admit running in high humidity is tough. My time was 1:50:17

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.
