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  (old lines that were a little out of date but couldn't quite bring myself to removing them completely:) Also, have one wonderful brown dog named Sammy and just added a grey tiger cat (Catty) whose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

Starkey offroad trails.

Ran with the Trinity Trail runners (Jenny's running group). Special run to support a fellow runner recently diagnosed and battling lung cancer. Nice morning out on the trails with coffee and snacks afterward.

Ok, it wasn't really a fail. Started running but decided that my legs needed a day off after racing on Saturday and not taking Sunday off, decided to "listen to my body"

Run in the nbhd with 6 miles at tempo pace, splits were: 6:57, 6:59, 6:55, 6:58, 6:55, 6:44
Goal was 7:01 pace. It was a bit of a struggle and felt like I was just getting the job done, which is better than not doing it.

Home to Y and back, long way out, shorter way home.

Cool and overcast, perfect for running. Slightly later start but got the miles in. Used the fountain and took a gel at the Y then returned back home on a different route.

Started with Joe, Jamie, Jamie, and a few others. Ran into the park and did an out and back with Joe and Cynthia. Legs were feeling unrecovered so I stopped a couple of times which helped, picked it up the last 4 miles and felt great at the end. Coffee with friends at Havana Dreamers after the run.
