Fairfield Half Marathon – June 2016

Here we are again, the most monotonous, predictable post on this lackadaisical blog, on a positive side it means summertime!   This race marks my 10th barefoot half marathon.

Basically the same formula I use for all half marathons, train 8 weeks (if you call it training), it’s more like running 3 days a week which I do all the time, except running longer on the weekends, which is maxing out at a few 10 milers.

It was a beautiful morning on race day, but was going to get hot by 9AM it was already in the 80’s but zero humidity, so to me quite comfortable.  Came in at 1:51:38 which I was happy with it.  I did stop at mile 8 to hit a port-a-potty, first time ever I stopped to pee during a half marathon, I was kind of pissed (no pun intended) at myself I had to stop but just couldn’t hold it any longer, my time would of been cut shorter, but oh well.

The home stretch to finish line.  I’m running on a gravel path right here which is about 40 yards

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.
