Short-Term Running Goals:

 

  • Sub 40:00 10K
  • 2:59 Marathon
  • 1:25 Half Marathon
  • 18:30 5K

 

Long-Term Running Goals:

Maintain my health and continuously seek to improve my fitness. Maybe someday get under 3:00 for marathon. More importantly, I'd like to figure out what my maximum ability is and reach that.

I'd also like to find the right balance in life and use running to enhance and improve myself.

 

Personal:

Dad of  three (welcome Charlotte Dani on 8/10/20) awesome kids and stepdad to three almost as awesome as my own kids.

I have a brown dog named Stella, and three cats - Catty, Tortie, and Esperanza.

  (old lines that were a little out of date but couldn't quite bring myself to removing them completely:) Also, have one wonderful brown dog named Sammy and just added a grey tiger cat (Catty) whose life started out rough but now has a better home.

I've recently started another blog so I can easily add lots of pictures and so other non-FRB users can leave comments:

Forward Progress!

 Also, for 2012 I started a blog to write down each day one thing that I am grateful for

Grateful Blog

 

Love living in Florida but love to travel and see the country and rest of the world.

Hotel treadmill in San Antonio.  Attending the Freescale Technology Forum this week, my first conference ever.   It should be good but I can't remember the last time I traveled for work for this long.

Slow start, then periodically played around with speed and incline. Felt pretty good overall.

Day two of San Antonio.  So far so good.

More treadmill, listened to some music I hadn't heard in a while.

Ran a little bit farther today.  Felt pretty good, almost like I could have run farther but ran out of time before I had to get going with the day.

Day 4 of travel, run was tough today, starting to feel a bit worn down with the schedule.  I wasn't sure if I'd even be able to run three miles, but started feeling better sometime after 4 miles.

Short on time but the run felt better than yesterday.  It was good to finally get back into the room while it was still light out last night.  Time to head home.

12.52 mi, 01:48, 08:37 pace

Ran with Jammie, Keith, and Victoria, to Starkey park and back with detour to Diane's house. Also saw Beka, Mike, Melanie, Craig and Diane on the run plus many others at Starkey park including Andy's civics teacher.

The air was warm and humid at the start, but on the way back there was a light rain which was on and off.  A lot of the run was a struggle until towards the end when I started to feel a little bit better.  Jammie also was struggling for a lot of the run.  I held back going faster until about the last mile or so.

The others stopped for a coffee at the coffee shop, I sat with them a bit but wanted to get home by 8:00 so I didn't stay long.
