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.

Back to running after taking some time off with our daughter back in the hospital again.  She is at home recovering now.  A very frustrating year for her and us but it could be a lot worse.

Nice run outside during the lunch hour.  Revisiting my love for good ole CCR music after recently watching documentary.  They have to be one of if not thee best rock 'n' roll band from the USA.  

Hit the weights after work.  I didn't want to but I did so there.
