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.

2 on the trails. Then 5.5 miles hood route. There appears to be no real damage done by yesterday's long run. Today was in full sun, and was a bit tough. But no specific soreness anywhere. So I guess I'll keep going then.

same drill as yesterday, only @ 10 minutes slower. 7:40 am start. 0.8 around the block miles. Then 10.2 miles. Hood Route to Legacy Trail to Colonia and back. Rained cats and dogs for miles 4-6. Then after that, running into the sunrise was kind of miserable. 

I worked a full day in the office yesterday for the first time in a year and a half. I had 3 meetings. I only plan on going back if I have days scheduled like that. I'm thinking this could work like, Oh you want to meet? Let's schedule it for Tuesday!

20.75 miles. Hood route to legacy trail over circus bridge to caspersen Beach and back. 6 am start. Way better running than last week. I was slow but in control the whole time. Full sun from 8 miles to finish. I have never seen this many manatees splashing around. It was crazy. On the other hand, there were lots of dead fish, down by caspersen. The red tide has finally shown up. The venice avenue boat ramp was already packed at 7 am. People want to get out on the water right now? It's gross but I might go out with boy #2 later.
