* = 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:

2019 GOALS:

Bring running fast back.

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, 12, and 14.

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 to legacy trail and back. 6 am start. Warmer today, still humid. I wanted a 6 mile tempo this morning. (Right now, I'm counting anything beating the 8 minute man as "tempo".) Last night I made dinner choices that go against this goal (3 chili-kraut hot dogs and a bowl of black cherry ice cream). So this is what I ended up with (and honestly, it's not as bad as I thought it would be) 0.75 up. 1 mile in 7:57. Emergency bathroom stop at McDonalds. 2 miles untimed, 3 miles in 23:03 (7:41 pace), 0.75 down.

5.5 miles. hood route. 6am start. Something below 70 degrees. Yes, it felt like fall. 

So on Saturday night, when the temps droppped like 5 degrees to put us in the low 70s, my buddy decided to build a bonfire. One of the conversations was - If you were a major league baseball player, what would your "walk-up' song be? I think I have this narrowed to 3:

1. Blur - Song 2

2. Win Win - Victim

3. Local H - All right (Oh yeah)

6 am start. 7.5 miles. Hood route to the legacy trail and back. About 5 degrees cooler. Still with the humidity.

Then after church. 4 miles on the trails with Tommy. Then an hour of basketball with Johnny. We did an hour yesterday also. Tryouts are tomorrow. I want him to be confident.
