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.

4:30am...7 untimed miles with Moxie on a warmer and mostly calm morning.  Good to be feeling well enough to get out and run.  Hammy did not hurt at all either.  (Boost)

Went to the gym with Kami and Justin.  We did a tempo run today.  1M wu, 4M tempo progession (6:00 to 5:27).  During last mile cd, I did a fast quarter at 4:17.  Overall 10K in 37:40.  (Tangent)

6.5 miles at lunch on a warm but windy and rainy day.  Ran to the store and met Gray for a run back to the park.  Nice to get a run in with him and have a good chat.  Nice and easy for this run.  (Mirage)

My family were all at activities tonight, so I went to the gym for a weight workout.  Wow, was the gym weight area packed!  Felt good to do this again...been a long time since a harder workout.

Went to the gym a bit late and run an easy 6 mile progresssion run in 38+ minutes.  Ran next to Lynette, Andrea  and Deborah...lots of tough times right now.  My old Tangents are due to be retired as when I run in them I get an abrasion on a toe on my left foot.  Too bad, love these shoes just not this pair.  I have one pair left (Tangent 4) for upcoming marathons.  (Tangent)

5.25 miles at lunch on a cold and windy day.  5 loops around Freeman Park and to and from the office.  (Mirage)
