* = These 5 races were run at 67.9 seconds per pound. If I want a PR, I need to weigh less than 170 pounds.

Short-Term Running Goals:

2021 GOALS:

Be consistent. 

Also, be less fat. 

Race, if possible. 

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, 15, and 17.

I started running because someone dared me to.

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

10.2 miles. hood route to legacy trail to colonia and back. It went from 40 degrees to 60 degrees while I was out running. I overdressed for 60 degrees. really low humidity, really low dew point. Best running weather in a long time.

I was ticked  off about the last couple of days productivity. So, 10.7 miles. Hood route to legacy trail over the swom bridge back to colonia and back the same way. 73 deg. 72% hum., 63 d.p. Hotter than I would like, but it's got to be better than running ahead of a snowstorm.

12.9 miles. Hood route to legacy trail to venice avenue and back. 76 deg., 63% hum., 62 d.p.

Longest run since my last marathon (9/12/21), 1st run with a camelbak since that marathon build-up, 1st run with Gu since that marathon build-up, 1st 50 mile week since that marathon, and, I think, first run with a watch since that marathon.

Speaking of which- 1:03 out (9:46 pace) and 1:06 back (10:14 pace) (includes stopping at a few intersections for traffic). These are not great times, but I don't want to live in fantasyland about my present abilities. Miles 7-9 were the hardest work. 

I did not encounter any hoar frost on this run. 

I was thinking of Kula Shaker's cover of "Hush" on and off during the run.
