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 out to the gate and back and then did 10x25 second strides workout, under 6:00 pace for most of them but not all.  Got in a little more mileage and glad I pushed myself a little bit.

Ran with Jacob from my house to the c-gate neighborhood in Champion's club.  We ran onto a service road to look for the end of the new Pinellas Trail extension which will soon join up with the Pasco section linking to Starkey Blvd as part of the cross-Florida trail they are working on.  Found the trail, but it is blocked off for now.  New section will be done sometime next year.

As we approached back to the house, I told him to take off and I'd try to catch him.  He got out way ahead.  We ran a few more strides which he wasn't expecting after going "all out" thinking each one was the last one.  Pretty fun run.

Ran with Joe and Jamie in the neighborhood.  Joe had to turn back early to make it to an appointment on time.  I took Jamie back to show her the new trail.  Part of the barrier had been taken down.  Mostly took it easy, but I did pick it up a little bit on the way back as the pace felt unnecessarily lazy.  Good run overall.

Woke up at 2:00, drove back home from PH house so Stella wouldn't be alone all night, went back to sleep but couldn't get out of bed until just before 8:00 (when alarm went off at 6:30 I saw that the weather would stay cool for a while so I opted for sleep).  Ran from my house to Starkey Blvd, then ran up to Alico Pass before turning back.  First three miles were slower (especially the first mile).  Picked up the pace and averaged 7:34 for the last 7 miles.

Today is Sammy's birthday, he's turning 13.  I took Stella over to Jenny's and brought a gift for Sammy.  Stella, NiKYO and Sammy played in the backyard, although it was mainly Stella and NiKYO playing.  Saw Tom and Andy briefly.
