Short-Term Running Goals:

Keep on running, enjoy it for the sake of running, relax and enjoy life...de-stress.  Stay fit as I enter retirement in < 4years.

No racing, retired.

Long-Term Running Goals:

Keep running until this old body says no, running for fun.

Personal:

 I started running competitively in 2005 and ran my first marathon in 2005. Now retired from competitive racing.

Bend down, O Lord, and hear my prayer;

answer me, for I need your help.
Protect me, for I am devoted to you.
Save me, for I serve you and trust you.
You are my God.
Be merciful to me, O Lord,
for I am calling on you constantly.
Give me happiness, O Lord,
for I give myself to you.
O Lord, you are so good, so ready to forgive,
so full of unfailing love for all who ask for your help.
Listen closely to my prayer, O Lord;
hear my urgent cry.
I will call to you whenever I’m in trouble,
and you will answer me.  - Psalm 86:1-7

Russian champion tries Crocs, commits to racing a marathon in them

Nikolay Chavkin in the video below did 3x1000, first two in Adidas carbon-fiber models, the last one in Crocs. Surprised by the result (2:52, 2:52, 2:50) with the fastest interval done in Crocs, he committed to racing a marathon in Crocs if the video gets 42K likes and 195 comments (for 42 km 195 m, the marathon distance). Nikolay's current marathon PR is 2:14:00. The video was created by a Russian sporting goods store chain. Their moto is "more sports - brighter life", which we think is wonderful, and also deserves a Like. If you want to see a fast marathon in Crocs, go to the video and click the Like button. And make sure to share it with your friends.

Had to work most of today (my day off).  Went for a run around lunchtime to work off stress from a really crappy start at work.  @!$%ing dog owners in the neighborhood during the day.  ANOTHER DOG ATTACKED Moxie after it charged a mom and her little girl just before us.  The onwer lady was outside and tried to hold back this huge dog by its collar and all it did was drag her across the snow before she let go and the dog charged us and attacked Moxie. I kicked it in the head a few times and the owner final grabbed it.  ARGH. (Glide Black)

10 miles total this morning between running with Moxie, running solo and XC skiing.  Poor Moxie got snow stuck in her paws in the fresh snow (3-4 inches).  Then Kami broke one of her XC skis today. (Xodus)

10 miles in a cold snow storm. First time wearing a balaklava in a longtime.  It helped until it froze then I had to take it off.  I am too old and tired for more winter. (Xodus)

With my plumber friend, installed 3 new toilets today.  Had a chore fixing plumbing issues especially in teh basement.  Decided on all new toilets instead of reusing existing ones...good choice.
