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!

First snow of the season. My son and I at the finish of the 5 mile Turkey Trot Rusty as a bag of nails, but it’s a good outlet. 5 mile Turkey Trot tradition. 20+ years running this race with my sister. My son made his debut today, fantastic job! Deadlifts. This was my last set of 225lbs, a new PR.
135 x 10 warm up
185 x 6
195 x 7
205 x 6
225 x 5

Had my son Andrew @parkor_boy23 filming and working out with me as well. Finally Optimal Nutrition comes out with a plant based protein.  Most protein powder has a lot of garbage in it, artificial flavors, gluten, dextrin, soy etc. which I try to avoid. I’m not a Vegan/Vegetarian but like a clean supplement. The taste is spot on. Not grainy or “earthy” tasting.  Very happy with this.
#optimumnutrition First cold barefoot run of the season. 25F and the sun was shining, felt good.

I don’t have heat In my garage it was a crisp 32 degrees, but don’t mind.  Some benefits of having a home gym is no travel time, no people, and you can wear your comfies.
This was my last set of benching at 170lbs Fall fun.
