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 Dan F and Chris C at Croom. We went out and back to the pits, then Dan and I did another mile on the road. Trail was wet mostly in a good way. On the return trip, just about at the top of a hill, I tripped and fell. I wished that someone could have filmed it, because while falling, I managed to rotate my body 90 degrees, so instead of doing a face plant I landed on my side and did a painless barrel roll. As I was doing this I was thinking to myself "I'm letting the roll absorb the energy of the impact". I stood up and was fine. This was my third time falling at Croom (first time was at mile 20 of the Croom Zoom race, 1/2012, and second time was mile 24 of Croom Fools Run 4/2012).


Saw a few other people running and met Dan Miller who I have heard of but never met, and met Laura D who won the Atlanta Marathon twice. Cloud cover stuck around so it never got unbearably hot. Another fun and interesting morning in Hernando county.

Ran with Striders at the Y. No intervals today, decided I'd let myself off the hook since I raced on Saturday.

Sluggish start and gradual pick up. Hint of coolness in the air with a good portion of the run in the dark.

Just an ordinary, decent run. Would have gone a little farther but ran out of time, need to start sooner on school mornings!

Pretty fun, mostly easy paced run, although I was feeling a little sluggish toward the end along with everyone else. Ran from Longleaf with Cynthia, Jamie, and Jorge, into Starkey Park and then back (with a stop at Diane's on the way up where we added Diane and Renee to the group).
