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.

First enjoyable outside run in two weeks!  Nice afternoon run with Moxie for 5 miles from home to Community Park and back.  Wish I would have had more time to go longer.  Temps finally coming up right at the end of the two weeks off...bummer.  Good for me as SAD is starting to hit me pretty bad.  (Ride 5)

6.5 miles at lunch in 51:50 on slushy path that was pretty hard to run on, no ability to push at all for most of the run.  Cool (25 degrees) but good to be back outside.  (Launch 2)

4:30am...6 miles with Moxie on a warm morning (30 degrees).  Pathway was mostly clear.  Glute was sore and I was tired, so this was slow. (Ride 5)

No lunch run, busy at work. maybe later when Katelyn is at swim practice. 5 miles after work, easy. (Ride 5)

I went with the kids to help with the Track Team workout.  IronCore day.

Ran 5 mile at lunch with DanS around the greenbelt then 1 solo lap around Freeman Park to finish of 6 easy miles. Warm, but the path was either wet or mushy.  Glute a bit tight today. (Launch 2)

4:45am...I was really sore from yesterday's workout, so some stretching before heading out the door.  Thought about not going but the temperature was great (30+ degrees) so I had to get it in.  Ran with Moxie and bumped into Curt with his dog, Roscoe.  The dogs had not met before so it was funny watching them interact on the run.  5 miles total pretty easy.  (Ride 5)

6.5 miles at lunch on a dreary (cloudy, foggy, mist/rain) but warmish (35 degrees) day.  Due to the weather the path was a slushy mess...pretty wet feet by the end but the Brooks Launch shoes and wool socks worked to keep my feet mostly dry.  (Launch 2)

Coffee, doc appointment and breakfast then I met Jason for a run on the greenbelt.  Nice and easy from the running store to Freeman Park and back for 6 miles in 56 minutes.  Good to keep getting to know Jason better.  (Launch 2)

0630...I met Craig for a run this morning, first time in a while...nice to catch up with him.  9 miles with Craig down Sunnyside and Hitt and back then I added 1 more solo for 10 miles in and easy 1:26 on the snowy and slick path.  Stopped by home for a pitstop, fuel and to get Justin then we went back out.   Pathways were even more slick now!  Ran into Curt and Alana and ran with them for 2 miles.  6 more slow miles for a daily total of 16 miles.  Wanted to go long today, even thought of longer but needed to start the days activities.  (Ride 5)

Taking down all the Christmas decorations today,,,all day activity but nice to now have the normal house back.  Tired and hungry now!
