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.

Garland, Tx hotel treadmill.

Pretty good run on the treadmill. Played around with speed and sometimes the incline.

One more morning in Texas.

A little bit shorter than yesterday, but still a pretty good run on the treadmill.  I like the treadmill but glad I don't have to run on it all of the time.

5:30 run at Longleaf with the Striders. Glad to still make it out after getting in at 1:00. Ran with Marcia for about a mile, then Liz caught up to me and we ran together for about 4 miles. Run felt good.

Race: Precise Race to Educate 5K (3.11 Miles) 00:19:06, Place overall: 6, Place in age division: 1

19:06.8 chip time, 6th overall , 1st place age group.

Felt really good on today's race. Warmed up just enough, rain pretty much stopped, just some wind. I felt good on the first mile, right at 6:00, and still pretty strong the second mile at 6:05, third mile I started to slow down. Then fellow Strider Ryan came up behind me and passed me. I was able to pass him back and stayed in front of him but wasn't paying attention and got passed by him at the very end (lost by less than 0.1 seconds). Last mile was about a 6:14. I knew there was some sort of master's award but I might have run a little fast if I remembered it was $75! Oh, well, if it wasn't for Ryan, my third mile would have been a good deal slower.
I now feel like I haven't slowed down, big improvement from Red Mule 5K in August. Sub 19:00 next time hopefully!!
Anyway, great to see a lot of friends, enjoy some pancakes and most importantly to support a worthy cause with proceeds going to the River Ridge AP program, in memory of Courtney
