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 in the neighborhood, was definitely feeling a bit sluggish, but after a 10:10 first mile stayed in the 8:xx's until the last mile which was about 7:50.  It was a little bit warm this morning but nothing like how it felt on Sunday.

I took some time to notice the good things around me like the birds and flowering plants and familiar faces of people out walking (most of whom I don't know their names but seem them out a lot).  I stopped at one of the fountains on the golf course despite the risk of getting yelled out.

Walked Stella when I got home but did not run her today.

Did some upper body work, mainly pull-ups and push-ups

Ran at Longleaf with the Striders, 5:30ish start time (more like 5:45, but better late than never)

After warm up ran 4x1km, 3:48, 3:46, 3:40, 3:49

I felt surprisingly faster than I thought I'd be on the first one, but by the last one I was really struggling to match the other ones, but it was a good leg wake up workout.

Ran easy for a bit and then picked it up for the last mile.

Last mile 6:54

Ran with Joe and Jamie in the neighborhood.  My left heel was really tight at first and I was afraid I was not going to be able to keep up but was fine after about 3/4 mile. Warm again but not terrible.

Evening run, about 8:00 pm at Camp Coleman in North Georgia.  Jessica had the day off so Aubrey, her, and I had lunch in town, did a one hour float trip down the Chattahoochee River, with stop at the water slides, and then grabbed dinner on the way back to camp. Aubrey went off to evening actitivies and Jessica had to work a few hours in the infirmary so I did a few loops around the lake with a couple small detours (one loop was supposed to be 0.75 miles but I did a little bit of "exploring" aka getting lost).
