* = 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. 

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.

7.5 miles. Hood route. 6:45 a.m. start.

6 pm. kids at church, so I decided to go run a bit on Legacy Trail. It was post-rain super-miserable. Anyhow, about 1.8 miles into it, I saw my man, Brian from church out running. We both laughed. like there's nowhere else to run around here! So I ran with him back to my car. Then we ran the 2.25 back to his car. As we were coming up to the finish, I asked him if we were going to race it out again. If he won, we would meet at the track next week. If I won, we would do this again next week. It seems nobody wanted to go to the track next week, because I really went fast at the end. Then he drove me back to my car.

7.5 miles. Hood route. Emergency bathroom stop at McDonalds at halfway. Sorry, McDonalds! Still ran @ 8:30 pace, including the stop. So, not ALL bad, considering.

P.s. this has nothing to do with running, but it's my new big thing, so who cares? tommy figured out Santa Monica (everclear) on guitar monday night, and I'm still super psyched about it. The boys made their first song together sunday night, which they immediately forgot. Still, i like where these music lessons are taking them.

7.5 miles. Hood route to Legacy trail and back. 6 am start. Comedic sweat levels. I hung up my shorts in the garage. They left a puddle that spouse accidentally stepped in barefoot. That scream will haunt me the rest of my days.
