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.

Another day another morning run.  Gradually a habit is forming.  God grant it.

Nice n slow morning run.  Left hamstring better, but a little testy.

Nice morning run, getting colder out there.  Flared up my left hamstring again by accident during strength training yesterday.  I think I can manage it though.

Morning run, reinjured left hamstring going a bit too fast.  I felt really good until that happened.  You'd think I would have learned my lesson about these things by now.  I'll have to force myself to keep it slow for the next several weeks.

Back at it after not feeling good the last few days.  Left hamstring feels fine but keeping pace in check.

Early morning run on the treadmill due to rain outside.

Strength training for 45 minutes after work.  That's gonna hurt.
