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)

1 on the trails. 7.5 miles. hood route. 11:45 am start. 

We spent the weekend driving 7.5 hours to and 7.5 hours from and on the Florida Alabama line. My nephew was married Saturday in Florala, Alabama, on a lake that is half in Florida, half in Alabama. Anyhow, the drive was a killer. I had visions of getting a run in Sunday night when I got back, but the ride home beat me up. My 16 year old son drove the family all the way up, and half way back. He left home as an interstate driving novice. By the time we got home, he was pretty comfortable with it, and I was feeling pretty good about my patience level in the passenger seat. 

2.5 on legacy trail. from Troll Music north to Roberts Bay bridge and back.

7.5 miles. Hood route to legacy trail and back. strange run.

First, on the way out I went by the middle school - last week of school, by the way - someone posted real estate signs in front of the school that said "MASKS DON'T WORK". I  mean, last week of school, someone spent money on this, what are they trying to accomplish? totally weird. 

Then, on the way back, after the school, I see my son walking up the sidewalk.  I said "Where's your bike?" He said "It broke, so I left it at Publix." I said "Did you lock it?" He said no. So I ran 2 miles today pushing a broken bike home.

School can't end fast enough for me.

3 on the trails. 8 am start. for some reason, the extreme heat and humidity haven't been here yet this summer, at least by local standards. that all changed this week. 87 deg., 66% hum., 74 d.p., feels like 96!
