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 Dixie in the hilly neighborhood. Felt better than last Monday's run, but still took it slowly.

Slow and easy run with Jenny and Jamie. It was uncomfortably hot and humid at the start, like it often is right before a storm is about to roll in.

Average pace: 9:26

Treadmill run at the Y. Started out slowly for the first mile then held steady at around 7:00 pace.  Did a short cool down afterward.  Legs were feeling good today.

Average pace: 7:30

Did some upper body exercises after getting home.

Pretty good run in Starkey. Took it easy on the way out then ran with Mike, Alex, and Andrea for most of the way back at a quicker pace.

Average pace: 8:06

Hung out a bit at social hour catching up with a bunch of other runners I hadn't seen for a while.
