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)

2 mile warm up.

10k my watch had 44:12. 7:08 pace. Race was windy as all get-out on the intracostal. This was not my best race. I had orientation for the night job (in Manattee County, @30 miles away), after the race. So when they delayed the start (due to the fact that they had too few restrooms, and everyone was using them when the race was supposed to start), I started getting nervous about getting to my orientation. They started the race @ 20 minutes late. I considered pulling out of the race. Anyway, I ran it. It felt terrible. I think I was 4th in my age group. I grabbed a couple of bottles of water and ran back to my car (@1.5 miles) against the flow of finishing runners. Then drove like a sweaty lunatic to get to orientation. It was a 6 hour orientation. I had my running shorts on under my jeans for the whole time. Gross. I'm sure all the new recruits loved my B.O. I saw my mom and brother at mile 1. It was great to see them. I knew they just came from the hospital.

So, I hope they get that restroom situation figured out before next year. I have to run this one again. There are not a lot of races in Venice. I can't hold a grudge over this one incident.
