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  (old lines that were a little out of date but couldn't quite bring myself to removing them completely:) Also, have one wonderful brown dog named Sammy and just added a grey tiger cat (Catty) whose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

I just couldn't get my legs going this morning so decided to not try and just go with whatever.  There was a little bit of a speed up for the last half mile at least.  Ran in the nbhd and out and back to the golf course.  Weather was amazing.

Ran at the Y with the Striders, starting time 5:30.  Smaller sized group this Tuesday, decent weather.  I felt faster and lighter today with the pace feeling easier than yesterday's pace.

Run in the neighborhood.  Coolest morning so far with a nice full moon to start with.

Ran at 5:30 with the Striders at Longleaf.   Ran a bit with Joe but I was kind of dragging at first so let him go.  Last two miles were in the 7:40's but it felt harder than it should have.  Overall it was a pretty good run.

Squeezed in a little bit of a run between being slow to get out of bed but still having to get ready by the same time.  Run was good, weather was good, but still feeling like I've slowed down a lot recently.

Ran with Joe from Longleaf at 5:15.  Started out nice and easy but kind of felt like I was dragging and the pace did not get much faster or easier.  Ran into the park, stopped briefly, then a little bit farther (to Neptune) before turning around.  When we got back to Starkey Blvd I told Joe to go ahead so he could pick it up.  I stayed on a slower pace, then got a little faster with three miles left and finally down to 7:17 for the last mile.

The weather was very nice, on the verge of being cool but not quite there yet.  I was wearing a hat and it kept on feeling loose, so I tightened it then the tightening strap thing broke.  It was a good hat, from Croom Zoom race in 2012, my first ultramarathon, a 50K trail run.

Had coffee with friends and sat for a bit after the run.
