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 Joe and saw lots of friends out this morning. Glad I was able to get myself out of bed this morning, it was worth it.

Almost one hour of Nancy's spin class, it's been a while, so glad I survived! Ran out to water and back, garmin-less. Very nice temp for July morning in Florida.

Warmed up with Joe G for just under 3 miles, then did a 4 mile tempo run (6:55, 6:47, 6:47, 6:42) - wasn't sure how it was going to work out (no music, some big puddles and no tempo runs for a long time) but decided to try and stay focused and relaxed which worked out, tough run. Cooled down a bit over a mile. I've got a ways to go but it was a good start this morning.

I was considering maybe doing two mile repeats at a faster pace, but I thought this would be a good starting point.  Going to add some more distance tomorrow.

Goal was to try and get at least 6. It helped that I varied my route. Saw several familiar walkers to say hi to and two running friends. The cloud cover kept it pleasant for running. One chocolate outrage Gu at water stop.

I'm hoping to make 8 miles more or less my usual run

Ran with Joe from Longleaf to Starkey and back. Also ran with Jammie and Victoria on the way out and then stopped by and joined up with Diane from her house to Starkey. Decent weather, just started to get warm when the run ended. Sat with Joe, Steve, and Richy for a bit at Havana Dreamers after the run.

Later, I realized that pretty much all hip pain was gone.
