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.

10 miles around Justin's neighborhoods of Germantown and Salemtown. Cooler and humid.

Waldo's Chicken and Beer is awesome! Great chicken collard greens and Macaroni and cheese. Good local beer two for one! Coming here again before we leave.

Went to a Nashville Sound baseball game then walked to Broadway to see what the honky-tonks are like at night. Wow what a busy and loud place.

10 miles.

Went and saw Justin's new office in the AT&T tower. Pretty swanky especially for a first job.

Walked downtown to get family some souvenirs.

5 miles in the afternoon. Then some pool time...playing pool that is.

Leave to go home tomorrow which probably good for justin and Moxie who is stressed out. I am not ready to go back to the crap at work.

Inspired by watching the Olympic marathon's the last couple of days, decided to make this a longer and harder run to push myself to feel like an athlete again.  6 miles with Moxie then 7.1 solo.  Ran the 7.1 faster that the first 6, the last mile of the run the fastest. Felt good to push again after running so many times just for fitness and stress relief. (React Black)

Taking today off as my lower back, hips and glutes are telling me to.  Unfortunately my waistline does not agree. Listening to the aches.
