Stockade-a-thon

It was Dad's 55th birthday yesterday. I ran a 15k race with my him and my four brothers. Well, more accurately, my father and I walked and jogged 15k while my brothers ran. Boy, am I beat. I'm glad that race is only once a year. Maybe next year I won't be in the clydesdale category (over 200 pounds). My official time was 1:57, about an hour slower than my last time. Of course, last time was sixteen years ago, when I was running cross country and training for a marathon. And a 100 pounds lighter. Ugh. I could run a six minute mile pace back then. It's more like 14-16 minutes now.

My brothers started a running club--Aces Wild--so it looks like I'll be running in a 5k Thanksgiving morning too.

What am I getting myself into?




This is all of us before the race. I'm in the back with the Captain America shirt on.



My brother Sam. Doesn't he realize it's November in NY? Crazy.



All of us after the race.



The guys sporting their Aces Wild brand. :)
