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 + 8 miles

Thought a lot about the tornadoes and tragedy in OK. "Only by the grace of God go I". Running doesn't seem all that important considering.

Run over lunch. Not feeling well since getting a tetanus shot on Monday. Fatigue and flu like symptoms. Lower back is sore as well. Hope I shake this quickly!

9 + 6 mi, all outside and easy

Good weather, cooler and dry. Body did a complete 180 compared to early in the week. Making progress and feeling good. Now wish the bodyweight would come down more quickly! So easy to pack it on.....

14.5 mi, outside, raining last 30 minutes

Slow weather front moving through so it will be raining all day probably. Try to hop on the dreadmill later this afternoon.  I've found the more I run, the more I complain about cold or rainy weather. Interesting correlation.
