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!

Olivia's first go at soccer. When you work right next door to a Crossfit gym, what else to do on break? Happy Easter! Spring running, goodbye winter gear. Just me and my girl. 7.1 mile barefoot run. Time: 103. Pace: 8.57. A little fishing with the boys. Can't stay inside forever on this cold, rainy spring day.
