Short-Term Running Goals:

 

  • Sub 40:00 10K
  • 2:59 Marathon
  • 1:25 Half Marathon
  • 18:30 5K

 

Long-Term Running Goals:

Maintain my health and continuously seek to improve my fitness. Maybe someday get under 3:00 for marathon. More importantly, I'd like to figure out what my maximum ability is and reach that.

I'd also like to find the right balance in life and use running to enhance and improve myself.

 

Personal:

Dad of  two awesome kids.

Also, have one wonderful brown dog named Sammy and just added a grey tiger cat whose life started out rough but now has a better home.

I've recently started another blog so I can easily add lots of pictures and so other non-FRB users can leave comments:

Forward Progress!

 Also, for 2012 I started a blog to write down each day one thing that I am grateful for

Grateful Blog

 

Love living in Florida but love to travel and see the country and rest of the world.

Ran with Joe, Jamie, and Daisy on the Courtney Campbell Causeweay.  This was my first time ever running there and it was quite nice.  I didn't feel good at the start of the run - legs very tired feeling but felt good once we got to the turn around point.  There was a nice breeze on the way back which kept us cool despite the sun coming up.  Very grateful to be back to running over 10 miles finally.

After we got back from our run, we were looking at a group of people about 100 feet offshore on standup paddle boards doing yoga - looked quite challenging.  As we were watching that, a woman came by and asked if we had jumper cables, which Jamie did have and I hooked them up and got her on her way.  She had gotten there early to watch the sunrise and pray, which apparently worked.

Ran at Longleaf with the Striders.  Ran out with Keith and Joe and turned back with Keith.  Had coffee and a muffin at Havana Dreamer's with Keith, Patrick and Bret.  Nice to sit and talk for a bit.

I was feeling about 90% normal on this morning's run.

Almost felt normal on this morning's run.  Ran with Jamie and noticed a lot less sinus pressure.

Another mostly decongestion run.  Did 1.7 miles by myself (neighborhood loop), then stopped at the house for Stella and we did about another 1.3 miles.

Better, but still not feeling great and not in any hurry, slept in a little bit and went for a run just long enough to clear out morning congestion and give Stella some much needed exercise.

Better run today than yesterday and it didn't feel bad at all.  Jamie was back from Buffalo but Daisy wanted to run 18 miles, so they started at 5:30 and then came by my house at 7:00.  We ran out to the new park and did a couple of loops around the lake then came back.
