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)

Russian champion tries Crocs, commits to racing a marathon in them

Nikolay Chavkin in the video below did 3x1000, first two in Adidas carbon-fiber models, the last one in Crocs. Surprised by the result (2:52, 2:52, 2:50) with the fastest interval done in Crocs, he committed to racing a marathon in Crocs if the video gets 42K likes and 195 comments (for 42 km 195 m, the marathon distance). Nikolay's current marathon PR is 2:14:00. The video was created by a Russian sporting goods store chain. Their moto is "more sports - brighter life", which we think is wonderful, and also deserves a Like. If you want to see a fast marathon in Crocs, go to the video and click the Like button. And make sure to share it with your friends.

3.5 miles. Hood route. Big Tailwind on the first half. Collin is a jerk. I had plans for this week, running and otherwise, and he's kind of messing things up.

I'm going to get one of these things! Every day should start by bungee jumping off of a flaming fountain power plant.

5:45 pm. RINGLING BRIDGE RUN! 5.2 miles. It was tough. Super duper hot, and I'm out of shape, but I ran the whole thing. It was good getting back to some old sights, sounds, and smells, and kind of weird parking in my old job's parking lot, but I had an opportunity to do it, and I'm glad I did.

5.5 miles. 6 pm start. on Legacy Trail. After driving back from Fruit Cove. It's Pretty hot out there, and I'm not in good shape, unless you consider "round" to be good. I haven't been on a scale in a while, and MIL has one. That was worse than expected. I'm working out a new set of goals, and losing weight is fairly high on the list.

10.2 miles. Hood route to Legacy Trail to Colonia Ave. and back. 6:40 am start. Much slower than yesterday.

Anyhow, I got to thinking - if you are running for the school board, and you have the letter "O" somewhere in your name, are you obligated to replace that "O" with an apple on your signs? Does someone without an "O" in their name find themselves at a disadvantage to someone with an "O", when running for school board? What about the letter "L" , being replaced with a pencil? Would you vote for the apple or the pencil? I'm just saying, it's a lot to consider, when voting. And school board is kind of important. Think of the children!

I already miss the regular schedule of the school year. It seema that every week during summer, some schedule change occurs.

I'm going to try to add to this tonight.

5.5 miles. Hood route. 5:45 am start. Less bugs, but more spiderwebs. That might be a direct relationship there.

7.5 miles. Hood route to Legacy trail and back. 5:40 am start. Not much bugs or spiderwebs, but a humid stillness that was creepy. Like, dew-accumulating-on-your-eyelashes level humidity.
