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)

2 on the trails. I'm very angry about something at work, and another thing at home, so I went for a run. Run cut short because of homeless lady yelled across pinebrook road for me to call 911. I don't run with a phone. Had to flag down a car from the backside of the full drainage ditch. after 10 cars ignored me, 2 old dudes in a mini van stopped. Explaining the situation to them, and watching them fumble through old guy vs. technology, was painful. As he's calling, a fleet of ambulances are in route to the retirement center just down the street, and he says that must be for her. No. No, No please keep dialing sir. please hit that last number. Then they didn't know what road they were on. So i have to scream across the drainage ditch at them, because they are hard of hearing, and now traffic is building up. Eventually, a police officer shows up, and asks her her age. She is my age. Crazy. I thought she was easily 15 years older than me. I ask the officer if he has the situation handled, and he says i can go. maybe a half hour of this nonsense. So in that last part running, I hear 2 fleets of ambulances coming from 2 different directions, and I'm getting angry about all of the money getting wasted here. And I'm thinking of having to run by this ridiculous situation on subsequent laps, so I pulled the plug on the run. 

Long story short, the run didn't relieve me of my other troubles, it only added a new layer of anger.

4 on the trails. Spent a lot of time talking to my neighbor between laps 3 and 4. It was good catching up.
