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 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 🔥
