Short-Term Running Goals:

2017 GOALS:

August 26- Fort Hamer 10k

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 12.

I started running because someone dared me to.

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

5.2 Miles. Ringling Bridge. 39:38. 7:37 pace. Great sunset. Cotton Candy Pink clouds. I saw a kid catching a fish, with his dad racing over to help him. Shirtless backwards visor dude was running without a visor. I don't know how I fared against him today. We were going in opposite directions. Also, I saw a very old man running up the bridge. We gave each other thumbs up. That would be cool to be out there pushing it like that guy some day. 10 days to race day. Every little ache in my legs is causing panic. Taking tomorrow off. I'm shooting for 16.25 Saturday, under 8 minute miles. Sunday is still a little up in the air.

I don't know how you run with all of the distractions :-) I think you're ready for the race!

I feel less ready for this one than I have for other races. It should be fun, though.

What is your schedule like leading up to your race? Are you just shutting it down, hoping your knee will heal, or do you plan on running in the next 2 days?

Ha ha..."fun" is a relative term when talking about running :-)

I may try to run a mile or so at race pace tomorrow if my knee feels better just to get the feel for the speed.
