Short-Term Running Goals:

I would like to run an Olympic Trials Qualifier in the marathon.

I would also like to run on one more international team before I pack it in!

 Stay healthy!  (My biggest challenge!)

Long-Term Running Goals:

Run my whole life, and then live vicariously through my children. (just kidding) , but I do want to pass on a healthy lifestyle to them.

Help coach East High to a state championship. (hope it doesn't take a lifetime!)

Personal:

I've been running since I was nine.  I'm married to a fellow runner who inspires and supports me.  We have two children:  Cole (4) and Lily (18 mos.)  I help Bill Cobler coach cross country at East High School.

Angry Achilles today.  Probably cross train tomorrow.  3 miles, followed by 5 laps of hard/easy.  Ten 100 meter strides total.  1.5 home.

40 minute run.  Achilles felt better than yesterday.  Started to act up again in the last mile. But manageable.  It's just old scar tissue from years of running

Nice morning.  Except for the wind.  Must be spring

Lily needed a running partner.  We were both tired.  Jumping from running nothing to running every day was not the smartest on my part. Warmer than I am used to this morning

Only reason I didn't run yesterday is that I didn't want to run in the rain.  I was lazy.
