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 at the Y with the Striders.

Almost feeling back to normal. A little bit farther today than Saturday. Nice and humid this morning.

Ran with Beka, Andrea, and Jason for first 4 miles, turned back before them and ran a little with Rachel, Denise, and Christina. Longest run since being back and fastest one so far. Getting there. Dead battery after the run but fortunately Stan had jumper cables.

Diane's house to Starkey and Back.

Started from Diane's house at 6:00 with Dixie, Diane, Cynthia, Rene, and Jorge. Ran into the park and were with Melanie, Beka, and Jason for a bit. Ran with Jamie for a bit before turning back with Dixie. Stopped a little longer than planned on the way back trying to defrost a frozen solid gatorade. Good to get some decent miles in this morning, coming back bit by bit. It is taking a little longer compared to shorter races but I have nothing to compare recovering from 100.
