* = 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:

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)

I'm coming to get you Tom K! Remember I was out for 8 weeks with the broken shoulder!!!

From SlowJoe on Tue, Nov 18, 2014 at 15:40:06 from 12.182.148.249

It has been a pretty productive 6 months...

Poor Matt is facing a SD winter - I predict it'll come down to the wire between you and IJR!

From I Just Run on Tue, Nov 18, 2014 at 15:51:33 from 66.249.83.213

I was planning a 2 mile run today but I changed it to a 20 miler since I've now been challanged!

From Derunzo on Tue, Nov 18, 2014 at 18:40:21 from 24.218.179.128

I'm just looking to try and run one more mile than last year. I need 2008 miles. It's going to be a stretch with the 30 mile weeks I've been posting for a while now.

From Tom K on Wed, Nov 19, 2014 at 06:58:44 from 73.27.178.76

Okay, now I may have offended IJR! The mileage board is unbiased. Ain't nobody challenged you, brother! Good job on the 20 (VERY FAST, BTW) miles, but that had nothing to do with me.

D- If you keep running the lunch break, you should pass that easy, right?

From I Just Run on Wed, Nov 19, 2014 at 07:16:45 from 66.249.83.213

No offense taken Tom....but I'm still coming to get you :-)

From SlowJoe on Wed, Nov 19, 2014 at 07:24:40 from 107.77.80.87

Clearly Tom has thrown down the gauntlet. It just got real...

From Tom K on Wed, Nov 19, 2014 at 07:30:38 from 73.27.178.76

Don't you need to go potty, Joe?

From SlowJoe on Wed, Nov 19, 2014 at 07:38:23 from 107.77.80.87

Hahah yes.

From Matt Schreiber on Wed, Nov 19, 2014 at 21:19:24 from 66.17.102.175

I'm glad I stumbled on this. Somehow I have to build back up from 25 mpw to get back in this!

From I Just Run on Wed, Nov 19, 2014 at 21:22:13 from 66.249.83.225

I'm coming to get you too Matt!

From Matt Schreiber on Wed, Nov 19, 2014 at 21:29:48 from 66.17.102.175

You really did go for a 20 miler. I have no chance. Anyways... Game on!
