* = 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. 

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, 15, and 17.

I started running because someone dared me to.

I ran my first race 3 days after my 40th birthday. (Disney)

5.2 Miles. Ringling Bridge. 41:09. 7:54 pace. 5:30pm start. This run was bad. Legs still stiff from yesterday. (I guess I really did go 100% on some of those.) Hot and stagnant today at the start. When I rounded the corner to run by the bay, the hot winds coming across the water were brutal. Got onto the portion of the run on brick, and the heat was coming up from my feet. I fought my way up the bridge, and then at the turn around I saw a storm had come in behind me. A big one. So on the way back I had cooler winds, but they were gusty and inconsistent. I don't think my feet touch the ground for a few paces, when lightning strikes nearby. So, I picked up the pace on these beat up legs, jumping puddles, wincing at lightning strikes, getting bay sand blown in my eyes, and finally I have @ 50 yards to the finish of my run. It was at this point, a guy in a pink golf shirt, passing by me in a SUV, hangs waist far out of the window, and screams at me "TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY!"

What in the wide world of sports is going on here? I hope tomorrow's run is boring.

The thought of paying to run over a bridge that I run over @ 3 times a week bugs me. but, I might have to run this eventually.  http://youtu.be/cQc97JlNqAg That is one big medal. 

The streak ends. 21 days. 155.3 miles.
