Short-Term Running Goals:

2023 GOALS:

Coastal Delaware Running Festival Marathon - 4/16/23 - Rehoboth Beach, Delaware

Long-Term Running Goals:

Continue running as often as I can, as far as I can, as fast as I can. Teaching my kids (by example) the rewards that come from putting in the work. Very slowly get to 50 states.

Personal:

I'm married, with two sons, 17, and 18.

I started running because someone dared me to.

I ran my first race 3 days after my 40th birthday. (Disney)

7.750.007.75

7.75 miles. Hood route to Legacy Trail and over SWOM bridge and back. 6:15 am start. I see no "winter" in my future. Just perpetual hot, sticky weather. Also, today there was no breeze. None.

10.2 miles. Hood route to Legacy Trail to Colonia and back. 7 a.m. start. Then we had a soccer game in Bartow. We won 4 to 2, but played just awful. We couldn't trap, shoot, or pass, but other than that, we looked pretty good. We have games out of town on both Saturday and Sunday next weekend, so I don't know how running is going to go.

5.5 miles. Hood route.  6 am start. Work / life has been crazy lately. I needed this run. There was low humidity and was in the low 50s. Great weather. 

I had this stuck in my head, like out of nowhere...

7.75 miles. Hood route to legacy trail over SWOM bridge and back. 7 am start. 65 and big winds from the west. That's 2 miles of fighting on the way out and 2 miles of flying on the way back.

7.75 miles. Hood route to legacy trail over SWOM bridge and back. 55 degrees. 7:20 am start. Very smooth. And it should have been! I took the last 3 days off! Long story short, work has received most of my attention lately.

7.75 miles. Hood route to legacy trail over SWOM bridge and back. 50-something degrees. 7 am start. in the light rain. When I got home, I realized the back of my shorts was still dry. I don't think that's ever happened before. The front of me was soaked. The back of me was dry. How fast have you got to run to make that happen? I must have been flying! Just kidding. It was really smooth though.
