4000 barefoot miles

I hit the 4000 mile marker this week for barefoot running miles. I didn’t record anything for a year or so, I took a sabbatical of running tech-free and recording nothing, so technically the mileage is longer and can’t even guess what the number would be. But I officially have 4000 miles recorded as of now. September 2009 is when I started running barefoot and before that in my shods days I never recorded my mileage, I thought it would be fun to start when I started running barefoot.

2016 was a good year, nothing really too exciting just busy with family life, and adjusting to 3 kids. My daughter is 20 months old now which is hard to believe, so I think the adjusting is done, if not I have some issues to straighten out:) I turned 45 this year which is really nuts! I still think I’m 20. My family and I are healthy so that’s a blessing and it all starts from there.  The running was good, kind of slowed down this year with mileage, but I did PR at the Norwalk, CT half marathon.  I’m really getting the itch to run another marathon and thinking about a 50 miler in 2016, we will see.  I hope to blog more as well and expand my topics with more interesting material other than running.

I wish you all a happy and healthy Happy New Year!

With Love!

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.
