Short-Term Running Goals:

2020 GOALS:

Publix Fort Lauderdale A1A Half Marathon - 1/26/20. PR.

Gasparilla 15k Tampa AAARGH you ready to run? - 2/22/20. Don't put up an ugly time.

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, 13, and 14.

I started running because someone dared me to.

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

Race: Springfest 12k (7.46 Miles) 00:53:53, Place in age division: 5

This is a very small race. I didn't run out of gas in the late miles, as I expected. (Despite my excessive 4 mile warm-up). There were problems with some hairpin turns, and the last 100 yards is across grass, which I wasn't ready for. There was a bounce house in the finish area, so, at least, the kids were happy while I was running.
