Short-Term Running Goals:
-Qualify for the 2024 Olympic marathon trials
Long-Term Running Goals:
-Run a few fast marathons. Grandma's, St. George, and Boston are on my target list. An Olympic Trials qualifier would be amazing.
-Break stroller records?
-Stay fit for a very long time. I believe what goes into making a competitive runner at age 60 is much different than age 20, just like what goes into making a good marathoner differs from a good sprinter. I hope that by taking care of my body, I can be very fast for my age as I get older.
I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I served a mission in Rome, Italy from 2015 to 2017. I eat a whole food, plant-based diet, which I believe helps my running. I like chocolate shakes on sunday nights and I will always call the Pacific northwest home.
Could be wrong about this but I may have been torching 7:45 pace. I definitely started out my run getting to the road before the tracks at 4:55 instead of 5:09 like last time. Still felt kind of yucky in the tummy.
