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.

Finally was able to get out of bed early enough to get in more than 3 or 4 miles.  Was rewarded with less oppressive air which actually felt kind of nice.  I started out at a pace I could manage and was running faster after a couple of miles.  Ran out and back from my house, past the golf course, down Trinity Blvd, to Trinity Oaks neighborhood.  On the way out I did not have to stop at the traffic light, but did on the way back so it was almost a completely non-stop run.

Yesterday was our one month anniversary.  I took her out to eat at Zim Zari's (a good place to share a plate of fajitas - although this time it was taco tuesday), and she bought me some flowers.

Started my run with Stella, about 1.4 miles (we ran a little bit past the gate, back to the house but slightly past it).  I wasn't going to have time for a lot so I threw in a few fast quarters to stay out of a slow rut.

quarters were: 1:33, 1:30, 1:25, 1:22

Easy quarter mile jog between the repeats.

Just a quick run this morning.  First 1.2 miles was with Stella and then I did the rest by myself.  I did not start very early so it had gotten pretty hot by the time I started.
