Running Accomplishments:

Marathon PR - 3:05 (3:06 at Boston)

Completed a dozen marathons and a handful of 50 mile ultras.

Short-Term Running Goals:

Consistent aerobic and strength training.

Christie Clinic Half Marathon 4/27/24

Long-Term Running Goals:

Sub 1:35 in half marathon.  Then might consider taking a shot at full marathon again.

Personal:

I started more dedicated running and racing in my thirties.  Eventually I developed symptomatic bradycardia and SVT which required a cardiac pacemaker implant and a cardiac cath ablation.  It has taken a long time to get back to running consistently again.  Counting my blessings and trying to remain more balanced with fitness.

7 mi - Slow jog before work.  Plenty of walking and sulking.  Disappointed by my level of aerobic fitness, but is what it is.  Not sure if I'll even get close to what I had 7 years ago.  One day at a time.

3 mi - Lunch run followed by 15 minutes of strength training including barbell deadlifts!
