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 in my neighborhood and then out and back on Trinity Blvd.

This morning definitely started off as a "put one foot in front of the other". I had to go back for a second shirt then told myself at least just go around the block. Then I kept on going and soon found myself most of the way down Trinity Blvd before turning around.

I still forget and am still amazed at the difference a run can make on ones outlook.

Another year wraps up, here is wishing everyone a better 2013.

There were a few people meeting at the Y at 7:30, so I figured that would be a good way to make sure I was up. Ran with Michelle, Charly, and two others, then about a mile into the run ran into Eudair who had started earlier and was hoping she would run into someone.

After the run, was talked into trying out Body Combat class at the Y which Jammie was teaching. Of course I felt awkward not knowing anything but it was still a lot of fun.

Ran with Eudair starting from Longleaf at 6:30, usual route through Longleaf and out and back on Starkey.

Saw Beka getting ready for her run, other than that the streets were pretty empty. Pleasant running weather this morning.

Whoops, slept in a little this morning (5:30 instead of 4:50).

Went over to Longleaf anyway, easy warmup and (just to be different), did two approx. 1.5 mile repeats, the first one at 6:38 average, the second one about 6:21.

Very foggy/misty/humid but cool enough at least

Felt good. Ran through the neighborhood and about 1.5 miles on the grassy shoulder of Trinity Blvd.

Ran from Longleaf at 5:30 with Cynthia, Bob, Eudair, and Jorge, stopping at Diane's house and then all running into Starkey. After a quick restroom stop we were heading back out (along with a lot of other people), when just about everyone stopped. One of our friends had been hit by a deer crossing the trail quickly in the dark. Fortunately, no one was hurt too bad. Cynthia ran with me back to Starkey Blvd.

  I then  ran the four miles back by myself. I wanted to pick it up the last 3 miles but "wasn't feeling it", but went for it all the same - 6:44, 6:51, and 6:25.

Back early and then had a good day with the kids.
