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  (old lines that were a little out of date but couldn't quite bring myself to removing them completely:) Also, have one wonderful brown dog named Sammy and just added a grey tiger cat (Catty) whose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

Simple run in the neighborhood and about a mile on the Trinity Blvd grassy shoulder.  Much better feeling than the runs at the end of last week when I was getting a very run down feeling about 5  or 6 miles in.  Felt good throughought the run today.

Weather - hot and humid, less wash to do, no shirts.

Ran at the Y with the Striders.  Did three tempo intervals, about 0.62 each, first attempt in a while.  Second one felt really good but third one was slowed down by traffic and speed bumps but good feeling effort.

Weather was noticeably cooler and/or I'm getting used to it.   Must have been below 75 degrees, that's when I notice it the most.

Slightly extended neighborhood run with a short out and back on the grass along Trinity Blvd.  Started out feeling coolish.  Pretty good run overall.

5:30 am run at Longleaf with the Striders.  First 6 miles were mostly easy, then did last three at 7:24, 7:17, 7:06

Extra hot and sticky this morning.  Had ideas of doing more of a tempo run but ended up modifying for conditions.  Great morning sky on return trip.

Loop through neighborhood, over past golf course to Trinity Blvd and back.  Hot and humid but had a pretty good pace and felt reasonably good.  A perfectly ok run to have.

Looks like I made my goal of hitting 40 miles by Friday also!

Went up to Brooksville with Renee and Cynthia.  Temps were just a little cooler there and most of the course is shaded.  Took it easy until the last few miles.

The last section is around a small lake, Renee skipped that so she could run down the road to where our cooler was.  I finished the usual course then ran to where Renee was supposed to be and eventually saw her.  I had never run that way before and there were a few pretty big hills.  I kept going to the cooler, grabbed a cold water then headed back to the parking lot.  Ended up with about a mile and a half more than I had planned.

It was a nice change of scenery, I think the last time here was in April.
