Forgot how early Bimbler’s Bash 10K trail race was each year and thankfully I’m signed up for their reminders, as I signed up with less than two weeks to go! I’m definitely not in PR shape, but should be able to at least finish :-) See you there!

Happy New Year! Ever since Brooks discontinued the Green Silence last year, I’ve been looking for a shoe to replace it. I’ve tried a couple, including the New Balance 1400, Saucony Kinvara and more recently, the Altra “The One”. However, none of them really felt great on my feet – but one that did was the Altra Provision. It’s zero drop (so a bit less than Green Silences actually) with a little cushioning and also laces up nice and tight. The tongue and heel cup seem to fit my feet perfectly as well. Make sure to order a half size up from what you regularly wear though as they seem to run a bit small.

Anyways, just something to consider if you’re one of those looking to replace your old Brooks Green Silences!

A little rain felt good on the trail. After the run, saved a few baby snapping turtles (or at least I’ll pretend I saved them.) Then took the baby in a stroll with the Baby Bjorn as we waited for football to start!

Went for a 7.5 mile run this morning as a final test to see if I could run a 11.6 mile race next weekend and the final verdict…no race :-( Survived the run, but it was painful and with baby Jacob in the house (see the pic…not sure I mentioned him on the site yet!) my training has been limited at best! It was pretty warm this morning, as the cows below are demonstrating…

Just felt like taking a photo of the local cows on my run today…

As a soon to be father (only 2 more weeks or so!) this weekend is pretty much my first Father’s Day I guess. We spent the morning taking some last minute pregnancy photos with our photographer friend Dana (photo below is not by her – hers will be a lot better I’m sure!) and then made a wardrobe change to hit the trails with my parent’s dogs. Awesome day for a run!

Today ended up being an amazing day after the torrential downpours last night! Hit the road for a long run and ran across this fellow who seemed a little confused about all the wetness…

Get out there and go for a run…even if it’s not very far or fast!

Dogs got worn out on this one, but I still managed a solid five miles!

Just kicked butt in the North Stonington 5K, finishing in
7th place with a time of 20:37. Was a new PR for me and luckily the
rain scared away the other good runners so I could get first in my
age group (2nd place was also in my group – but top 3 don’t count
for age group awards :-)

Rockin’ numero uno like an elite!

Looking rough coming down the homestretch!
