Short-Term Running Goals:

FALL 2016 GOALS:

11/5 - Savannah RNR Marathon.

11/20 - My buddy is running the Ironman Phoenix. I'm bringing the whole family out to cheer him on, as well as take in some sights. If anyone has any suggestions for things that we HAVE TO see while we are out there for a week, let me know. We plan on spending a couple of days at the Grand Canyon, but beyond that, it's kind of wide open.

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 9.

I started running because someone dared me to.

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

5.5 miles. Hood route. 6am start. Run started in the rain. I took yesterday off because my right quad felt not good. I don't think I've ever been injured there before.

Anyhow, I knew my mileage was going to take a hit this week, because... This Saturday is my parents' 50th Anniversary! 50 years! What do you talk about after 50 years? You would think you've already said everything! SOOOO, Big party. Aunts and uncles and cousins coming in from out of state! Pandemonium! Well, between work and football and party coordination stuff, I knew this week was going to be a let down on mileage, but fantastic otherwise.

10.2 miles. Hood route to Legacy trail to colonia and back. 6 am start. The first two miles were awful, but after that it was pretty smooth sailing.
