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.

Evening run with the boys from the house to the golf course water fountain and then back. I stopped the watch at the water fountain. On the way back, Andy went ahead of us and finished about 5 minutes before Tom and I.

Still warm and humid. Ran at the Y, easy paced warm up almost 2 miles, then did 5x1K with about 0.3 rest between.

Paces: 5:56, 5:54, 5:42, 5:51, 5:56 All under 6:00, hurray!

Oftentimes, seem to mess up on the first one, last one or both.

Coolest morning in a long time. Ran with Jorge. We started out kind of slow but gradually picked it up, ending the last couple of miles sub 7:30.

Longleaf to Starkey and back via Diane's house on the way out. Started with Jorge, Jamie, Cynthia and assorted other people. Turned back two miles into the park and back to Longleaf with Cynthia.

Before the run I let the dogs out and there was a raccoon in the lanai which the dogs cornered. Sammy got bit (possibly from the raccoon), but he's up to date on his shots, the vet cleaned him up and said he'll be fine.
