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 sweetie is proud of her snowman she made, or I should say Sammy as the name she gave him. Family skate day. My mom at a young 70 lacing up the skates! My favorite girl.
#mysweetie So intense. Power and strength to the max. Who says dinosaurs don’t exist. Sunday morning 3 mile barefoot run. Blowing the dust off the skins. I like to incorporate deadlifts with my back workout. This was my last set of 240lbs for 6 reps. Seeking that 300lb mark down the road.

It’s starting to warmup in the garage, 25 degrees this morning. “I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.” MLK 🔥
