Short-Term Running Goals:

2018 GOALS:

March 17- St. Patty's Day 8k Out of town soccer tournament. It's back on, and I'll be racing both of my sons! 32:56, (6:38 pace)

May 12 - Brookings SD Marathon

One Tempo Run, One Interval Workout, and One Long Run per week. 50-60 mpw. The world's most simple training plan. 

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, 11, and 12.

I started running because someone dared me to.

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

3.5 miles. hood route. slow. I think the Kinvaras have gone flat. I am getting aches in my shins that lead me to believe that these shoes are done. I got them on Valentine's day. Anyway, it's far enough from race day that I can get new ones. I can't believe the short life span of these shoes. 525 miles? I got 1,000+ out of my Hokas last year.

Or maybe it's my work shoes that are causing me leg pain that I only realize while running.

Or maybe its getting close to race day, and my fitness isn't where it should be, so I am blowing slight aches and pains out of proportion.

Or maybe everything was clicking about a month ago, and I peaked in this training cycle too early. 

Or maybe I'm playing too much basketball and soccer with the boys these days. 

Or maybe, Or maybe....

10.2 miles. Hood route to legacy trail to colonia and back. Super duper hot and humid. Good luck to those folks racing tomorrow! I'll be watching from my dry, climate controlled office.
