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.

Sandwhich run, short window from getting back from Jessica's house, catching up on a few things at my house, getting in a run, before stopping back at her house and getting to work.  Not a bad run, just a little bit short on miles.

Today is Stella's birthday!

10.4 mi, 1:27:29, 8:24 avg

6:00 start was a little bit too early, but was hoping to catch Joe and Jamie as they finished their run to at least say hi.  Walked Stella and started running just after 7:00 but did not see them.  Then kept on going and ran over to Longleaf to meet up with the Strider's for the July 4th run which had started at 7:00.  Stopped and said hi and stashed my gatorade.  Marie said she had seen Thomas fly by her (said he ran so quietly she didn't hear him come from behind until he passed).

I ran up and turned around just past the bridge, saw Thomas coming back as I was heading north.  Stopped again on the way back to finish my gatorade and grabbed a second one from their cooler.  Talked to David J a little bit (hadn't seen him in quite a while - he'd been out first for prostate cancer, and then while ramping back up ran into some heel pain which won't go away).  Cynthia, Renee and several others were there also, tried not to stop too long.  Got going again and finished up the last 2.4 miles home.

More exhausted than I thought once I got home.  Couldn't believe I fit in more than 10 miles after yesterday's run made 6 miles seem far!

Weather was not so bad, about 75 degrees and nice when in the shade.

Ran with Jamie at 6:45.  Warm and humid this morning and legs were a bit tired but just moved along while chatting and run went by pretty quickly.  Right at 7 miles when splitting off from Jamie, then back home and ran with Stella for a bit to get to 8 miles.

Ran with Joe in the neighborhood, about 5.5 miles before stopping back home to make sure I had a chance to see Jessica off to work. 

Went back out and walked Stella and then ran her about a mile.  Finished up by myself with a few Strides

Evening run in the neighborhood, solo.   Had flown back from Atlanta in the afternoon, getting back in at 7:30, then getting a ride back home from Jamie, and then went to Joe's house to retrieve Stella before heading back home.  Was able to start my run right about 9:00 pm.  As I was approaching Heritage Springs a deer ran across the sidewalk, coming out from behind some bushes.  If I had been just a little bit earlier it might have run right into me.  I looked around to make sure no more of its friends were with it.

Managed once again to get 40 miles this week.  Time to start thinking about NYC marathon training.
