Short-Term Running Goals:

2021 GOALS:

Be consistent. 

Also, be less fat. 

Race, if possible. 

9/12/2021 - Med City Marathon

 

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, 14, and 15.

I started running because someone dared me to.

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

Happy Easter. 

I hit 2 hours of grounders, pop flies, and line drives to my son on Saturday. My left shoulder is destroyed. It hurts to do most things, like standing, sitting, lying down, and typing this.....

On Monday. This is not good.

7 years ago today, I ran the Boston Marathon. That was the last time I got under 3:15. Also, that was when some super cool stranger took those pictures you see as my profile picture. A lot has changed since then. I doubt I'll get under 3:15 again. I'm about 25-30 pounds heavier. I'm teaching the kid that is touching my cheek in the picture to drive. 

On the other hand, that lady I'm kissing in the picture is still really attractive.

4 on the trails. I met a couple visiting from Ohio out there. Nice folks. 

last game of the little league baseball season last night. playoffs start tuesday next week. About 82 days ago, my 14 year old decided he wanted to play baseball. Last night, he pitched in a game for the first time. Just for the first inning. He actually struck a guy out. 

the thing is, I don't know whwere we go from here with baseball. Do I get him intravelteams? Do I work with him non-stop so he can try out for the JV team next year?
