* = 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)

Big hour and a half bike ride this morning. Most of it on Legacy Trail. It felt like a pretty good workout. What I've learned about cycling: 1. Hills are more of an inconvenience to cyclists than they are to runners. You are limited in your options as far a gears, leaning, and effort to overtake them. Runners can constantly make micro-adjustments to overtake hills. 2. The urge to race strangers is really ramped up on a bike. I got passed by one dude out there. He had a tricked out bike and a goofy aerodynamic helmet. I tailed him for about a half mile on my cheapo Huffy mountain bike, before i let him go.

i plan on pool running later, after church, and my dad's 75th birthday party.

12:30 - 1/2 hour pool running. The pool is not heated. I'm glad we got up to 82 degrees today.

Nice day of cross training with the cycling and pool running. I agree, it is totally hard to fight the urge to race people on the bike.

Thanks guys. Although I'm enjoying the change, I'd rather be running. View at Caspersen Beach this morning...
