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  (old lines that were a little out of date but couldn't quite bring myself to removing them completely:) Also, have one wonderful brown dog named Sammy and just added a grey tiger cat (Catty) whose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

Beautiful weather for running this morning. Slow first mile (10:02), but it's what I could do. Felt better as the run went on, and felt great at the finish. 99% of the time the runs always get better if you get through the sucky part.

Feet felt one notch better today. Picked it up a bit although still not ready for speed work. Ran with Eudair for a bit, then caught up to the fast girls (not that Eudair isn't fast, but she usually trains at my pace, although they were taking it easy). Comfortable, non-chilly weather this morning.

A little bit in the neighborhood, then past the golf course and down Trinity Blvd for a while running on the grassy shoulder before heading back. At mile 3.76 I was happy to be running. My feet could be a little bit better - ice, ice,ice.

Cool and a little bit humid. Started out with the group, a little bit behind at first. Started picking up the pace after 4 miles, second to last mile was 6:17. PF was another small notch better today. Taping yesterday helped.

Meat and potatoes weekday run. Weather was nice and cool. No dramas. Highlight was trying new Gu flavor - peanut butter.

5:30 start at Longleaf with a pretty good sized group, although I lagged behind for the first mile until my feet warmed up. Ran with Keith, Dixie, Eudair, Diane, Rene and saw many others.

Return trip by myself and picked it up for miles 13 and 14 - 6:23 and 6:17.

Cool and cloudy morning, great for running. Coffee and guava pastry at Havana Dreamers, and two more to go to bring home to the boys.

Happy to get over 50 miles this week and showing signs of improvement in my feet.

Hopefully I'll be up for the 10K Turkey Trot on Thursday, and maybe earn another mug.
