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.

Back home after two days of driving and just over a week away.  Fun visit up north to see family.

Run felt long this morning, but ran into Joe and ran with him for a bit which helped.

Where does the time go?  I've been running, although last week was sparse while traveling on vacation.  Ran today and yesterday, as well as two days last week.

Hot, low 80's and sticky but felt like I got a little in at just over 4 miles. Time to get back on track!

Despite the hot and humidness, still a beautiful morning to run.

Getting back into routine.  Around the neighborhood, out past golf course to Trinity Blvd and then back home.  Very slight breeze to cut the heat, so not bad at all.

Met Joe at Longleaf just after 5:30 and set out at an easy pace.  My hip flexor had been bothering me slightly this past week but felt good at first, but after a few miles it felt like I just couldn't move my legs that fast and stayed in the 9:00s. 

Just inside Starkey park I told Joe to go ahead.  I walked a bit, then ran, so run-walked the 7th mile to the parking area.  Waited there a bit and thought about getting a ride home, but the run-walking felt ok.

So, managed to make the run back and then run a little farther to make 13.  Stretched a few times and feel ok.  I've been skipping too many core exercise routines and I think it's starting to catch up on me.  Being out a little too late last night didn't help either!
