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.

First run after the marathon.  Felt pretty good, slowly loosening up as the run progressed from slow 11:00 pace down to a 9:00 pace.  Ran with Stella.

Ran on Starkey Blvd bike trail from Longleaf area with the Striders thursday morning run.  I took Stella with me and this was her longest run ever.  On the way back, we had picked it up a little and while crossing the bridge which has concrete barriers on either side of the bike path, the car noises echoing were making Stella skittish and she got out in front of me as I sped up, must have been leaning forward, lost my balance and went down.  My right was oustretched still holding her leash.  I skidded a little bit when I landed, but fortunately I almost perfectly distributed the force from my hip, shoulder, elbow and wrist, so nothing was broken.  Elbow was bleeding pretty good and hip was a little bit sore and had a grape fruit sized road rash, but that was the extent.  Ran back to the parking area and got patched up by Anthony who had some gauze, tape, and alcohol.

Ran with Joe and Jamie in the neighborhood (no Stella this time).  Still a little bit sore from yesterday but thankful it wasn't worse.  Pretty good run today and just a little bit longer than yesterday.

Ran with Jamie in Starkey Park.  Very nice morning out.  Run was good but felt a little bit "long".  Got to chat with a few people after the run before heading home.

Picked up the truck from the repair shop after three days of using the loaner (a brand new Silverado).  Good to get the truck back to Andy so he has use of it again.  On Monday, he had driven it to Busch Gardens and it started to overheat.  Still drivable but in need of some repairs.  Water pump, instrument panel replaced, and oil leak fixed (the second two had been on the list for a while).  Hopefully good to go for a while now.

Also, remembered to actually register for the Western States 100 lottery.  Drawing will be in December when I'll find out if I've gotten in or will need to try again next year.  I was pretty lucky to get in the first try for 2013 race and at that time I only needed a 50 mile race to qualify.  This time it took me two attempts - GA Death Race where I missed the qualifying time, and then Oil Creek 100 mile race where I made it.
