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)

6 miles on Venetian waterway park. Venice Avenue Bridge to Circus Bridge and back. At sunset. Great weather. Started rough, but finished strong. The goal was to continue to the north bridge, and then do bridge (hill) sprints and jog back to venice avenue bridge. That didn't happen. maybe next week.

At track. 2 x 2 miles. My additude is garbage right now. About running, and most other things too. I've got to turn this around soon. Life is good. I've got no reason to walk around surly.

Pop went into the hospital again today. It was 12 hours at venice hospital before they shipped him up to Sarasota. I was there for the last 4 of those. Venice has been full since the day it opened. That place is like a shipping depot for sick humans. It is a big line of ambulances just taking people to other hospitals. No one in my family will ever go back there willingly. Drive an extra 20 minutes to get care at a place that actually treats you.

Spent some time with Pop in Sarasota Hospital. He was "combative" before I got there, aparently. So my visit was with a drugged out sleeping guy. I'm sure he didn't even know I was there.

14.25 mile run fail. Goal was 20.75. Hood route to legacy trail to caspersen beach back to venice avenue, before I gave up. 70 degrees at the start. 80 degrees at the end. 75% hum., 71 d.p. The 20 mph wind out of the south wrecked me. I ran 6 miles straight into that. I was hoping the turn around would help me more than it did. Mentally, I didn't have it today. The early half of this week was light on miles. I'm going to try to change that next week so that I'm not running so many miles late in the week. 

Now I'm going to shower, eat something, and go back to the hospital to see Pop.
