Short-Term Running Goals:

2017 GOALS:

March - Shark's Tooth 10k. St. Patty's Day 8k

May - a marathon somewhere- SD, or DE, or ?

RECOVERY (I'm not a kid anymore) and SPECIFICITY (make training runs mean something).

Also, I am determined to put my boys on some snowboards by the end of the year. This is the year.

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, 10, and 11.

I started running because someone dared me to.

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

7.5 miles. Hood route. 6:30 pm start. This is the beginning of a slippery slope. So far, I've been doing well at separating my workouts from my recoveries this year. Ever since Saturday, when I ran with Dan, any little thing- sniffles, cough, aches, etc.- keeps me from doing a workout. I could easily slip into 2016, where every run lacked purpose, the amorphous blob of pseudo fitness. It's pretty obvious who I should blame here.... Tom Brady.

Ghosts appear and fade away..

7.5 miles. Hood route. 7am start. I still don't feel right, but not bad enough not to run.

Woke up with a sore throat, and feeling like I was getting sick, so i skipped running.

Spouse and I went to a funeral in the afternoon. The family is a big part of the local running community, so there were a few sentimental running stories in there.
