* = 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, 14, and 16.

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.

3.5 miles. Hood route. 6am start. Then emergency bathroom stop. (Dang it!) Then around the block intervals. (4) x 0.25 + 0.25 recoveries. 1:22, 1:24, 1:26, & 1:27. Then 3.5 miles. Hood route. I'd say the new interval set up went well. During the course of the runs, 3 of my neighbors decided to do yard work, which was odd for 7am on a Sunday. Even though there are no spectators on the track, I still liked this better!

3.5 miles. Hood Route. 6:15 am start. In the rain. I ran every day in July. In 7+ years of running, I have never run every day in a calendar month. I didn't run big miles, but I ran.

1.5  miles up. EBS. (4) x 0.25, w/ 0.25 recoveries. 1.5 down. 1:28, 1:27, 1:27, 1:26. I feel like I am starting to find the pace on these. I expect to do 6 reps on Sunday, and 8 reps next Thursday.

13 miles. Hood route to legacy trail to Venice Ave and back. 6:30 am start. Extra 0.1 miles from off course emergency bathroom stop at mile 3.

So they have bugun work for an overpass of legacy trail over laurel road. If it is privately funded, then so what? I mean, it would have been more useful to construct an overpass over clark road, which is actually busy. But if "the friends of the legacy trail" want to build here, i dont care. However, if this is publicly funded, i can't think of a bigger waste of money, to benefit such a small minority. The only people benefiting from this overpass would be cyclists that do not want to slow down to push a button to cross the street.
