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.

Easy paced run in the nbhd but not quite enough time to go as far as I wanted. Cooler weather nice.

Run in the neighborhood.  Almost got going by the time I wanted but at least I'm getting better.  Even more perfect running weather this morning than yesterday.

Longleaf with the Striders this morning at 5:30.  Great weather but I was feeling very sluggish for first three miles which were all slower than 9:00.

However, once I started the fourth mile my legs moved better and was able to hold and and even pick up the pace, with last 5 miles at 7:45, 7:45, 7:15, 7:15 and 6:44

Ran in the nbhd with Joe.  Met about 5:45 - so success today at getting up on time to be done by 7:00.  Nice easy pace, gradually increasing from pretty slow to medium easy at the end.  Cool morning and bright moon but did have to dodge some banks of sprinklers.

No run today - took Andy to his swim competition, and made a couple trips back and forth to make sure Thomas would get to see him compete.  It was great watching him and inspiring me to think about trying to swim.  He really improved a lot from day 1 to the end of the season.
