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:

None, just regular strength and aerobic conditioning.

Long-Term Running Goals:

Maybe complete some races again.


Started runnning more regularly in 2005 after years of mostly strength training.  I have cut back on endurance training since developing heart and thyroid issues over the years.  Reintroduced strength training and walking sessions for a more balanced approach to health.

Looks like you're getting in some good mileage. Anxious to see how you do in your upcoming marathon

So what is a Van Aaken finish? Nice run.

I'm still wandering the earth!! I'm in a temp housing set-up with my new job. The work computers block this site and I don't have the laptop with me. Wife won that one discussion :(

I'm racing this Sunday, but the stresses of moving, new job, relocating family, selling house etc. have cut into my running the past 3 weeks. Not sure how I'll do, but had a good 20 miler last week. I know I'm heavier than typical though. Should be an interesting ride!

Good luck with the race this weekend. I'm sure you will do great. You have a big base established from all those miles. You do have a lot going on in your life right now. Where are you moving and how is the new job?
