Southport, CT 5 mile Turkey Trot – 2014

I was figuring out when I first ran this race and I think it was around 20 years old, now at 44 still running it. I only missed one year in those 24 years.  My sister Heather actually got me into running this race, and it’s been a family tradition ever since.

This year was special, I ran with my sister and brother-in-law Sean together, usually we would do our own paces but this year wanted to stay together, it was quite enjoyable and a very nice change of pace.

It was a very cold brisk morning, 32 degrees at the start, wet roads from the rain and snow the day before. This was my first race I ran barefoot 5 years ago when I transition to barefoot running, I had to keep the tradition going.  I wore my Soft Star Runamoc Dash’s to the race to keep the feet warm and they came off right at the start, I just carried them in my hand.   Very fun race and hope you all had great Thanksgiving!

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.
