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.

Classic start out slow (10:05) and finish strong (7:30's). Cool, a little humid Monday morning, get going and chip away at the 10 mile run. Nbhd loop, golf course and out and back on grassy Trinity Blvd shoulder. Having a schedule can be a gift sometimes, I don't think I would have felt up to ten miles this morning if it wasn't on the schedule.

Chilly run (35 degrees), actually not too cold when running with the wind. Started out for a bit with Beka, Jason, and Jean and ran a bunch with Rudy and Joe. Did 7.3 while at the Y, chatted a bit post run over some coffee, and then went home and finished up, hoping it would warm up when it got lighter out, but instead was the same but windier. Oh well, this is as bad as it gets here so I'll just deal with it.

10.04 mi, 01:15, 07:30 pace

Ran from my house, onto SR54 to Starkey Blvd for my warm up and then did the tempo portion up and down the Starkey Blvd bike trail.

Tough tempo run, chilly wind, them warm because of the layers, but did the job. Warm up 1.7 miles, then 6:52,6:44,6:34,6:41,6:35,6:29, followed by 2ish easy miles.

It's always hard starting out alone in the chilly wind and still dark out but feels much better once it gets a little light out.  Felt great the rest of the day after getting this run checked off.

Out and back run, a bit onto Trinity Blvd. Much warmer this morning, a few sprinkles. Very nice for running.  I started out a bit later than usual so had to cut it a little bit short but still was able to at least get something in.

Ran in the neighborhood with Joe. It was definitely the nicest running weather all week (yesterday was the second nicest day but had a little bit of rain).

A bit humid this morning, started with Renee, Cynthia, Joe and Jamie (who had started earlier). I went out 5 miles with Jamie, then kept going to 7 miles at an easy pace, then turned around for a 7ish pace for the return trip: 7:00, 6:57,6:54, 6:49,6:51,6:54,6:46

then one more mile easy pace for cool down. Stop at Dunkin Donuts after the run for coffee and recovery carbs (i.e. donut and chocolate milk)

Can't believe marathon is in a little over a week, I'm hoping for a pleasant surprise but will just go out and see what I can do.  Can't believe last marathon was April 2011
