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 3:27:37 (7:56 pace)

October 7 - Towpath Marathon, Boston, OH

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 13.

I started running because someone dared me to.

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

Last morning in the keys. School starts tomorrow. This was a last trip of the summer thing for the boys, and an excuse to get me into some non red tide water. So the highlight of the trip was today, when we went to John Pennekamp State Park and went snorkeling 6 miles offshore at the Grecian Rocks Reef. It was beautiful conditions and the fish were everywhere. I mean, it was impressive. You can actually get some "street view" pictures from Google Maps.
