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)

5.2 Miles. Ringling Bridge. 38:45. 7:27 pace. 5:30 pm start. 76 deg. 56% hum. 59 D.P. The right shoulder thing has mostly gone away. I blame the car for that one. Crazy? For 13 years, I drove a car that had a certain height of center arm rest. Now that height is different. That's my theory. The left groin thing - I looked into this on the interwebs. It could be a hip flexor injury. I don't know. I had to go slow for the first half mile, then everything was fine. It hurts to walk and sit, but not to run. Go figure. I just have to chill out for a while, and let IJR rack up the miles on me, I guess. 

I'll be running this Friday with Tommy in his first 5k.

Running in Venice? With smoke effects and glow sticks? Next to the beach? With a movie afterwards? Come On! WHAT MORE COULD AN EIGHT YEAR OLD WANT?! This is gonna be great!

....I might be a little too excited about this.

Rev3 Glow Run 5k. Tommy's first race. 1 mile up. 5k in 28:46. 9:16 pace.

The course was more like an adventure run, than it was a true road race. .We ran on asphalt, concrete, grass, the beach (for about 3/4 mile), gravel, up and down wood stairs on the dune crossover, and finshed on carpet. At one point, as we were running through the dunes, dodging the plantings, in the dark, I thought "How is this legal? There are signs everywhere telling you to keep off the dunes, and we're running through it? Okayyy?" The course length is unofficial. The time is unofficail. But the whole thing was a lot of fun. We started near the front, and were about 5th and 6th @ a mile into the race. We hit the beach @ mile 2, Running in the soft sand wrecked our pace, and I was really happy to get back on pavement. While on the beach, we saw a great sunset afterglow over the Gulf (Tommy says this was his favorite part.) Once we heard the music coming from the finish line, Tommy really pushed it through the smoke effects and black lights. I'm guessing we were in the top 25, out of 200, or so. Then we ate hot dogs, and watched Monsters University outside. I'm really impressed with these Rev3 folks. They really cater to families. I think this was a great first race experience for Tommy.

And now I am really curious what the kid could do on a flat, paved track. Hmmm.

My 3rd year runing at this event. 79 Degrees, 63% Hum. 66 d.p. For the second straight year, the timing of the race was incorrect. This year, it was off by 22 seconds, or so. The timing folks are aware of the error. I really like the course, the food after, the time of year, the charity, but this timing issue has got to go. Anyway, I went into the race with low expectations, because I still have a bit of a cough.Warm-up went fine, with little coughing. The race started, and I went out at a comfortable pace. I held the pace great, unil 2.5 miles. then the coughing fit hit. Then my pace was altered from that point on. I was really holding on at the end. Official race results will be here http://www.harvesthustle5k.com/ eventually. 

I think I might have a sub-19 5k in me someday, if I can just not get sick, or have my toes crushed (like last year). Congrats to my friend Brian, for running his first 5k today. 

Then I went to the kids' baseball game, Then there was a kids birthday party at the YMCA pool. I'm beat. 

(Edit) The official timing is out here: http://www.suncoaststriders.com/results/20131123_harvesthustle5k.htm  my time was not 19:18, it was 19:19.5.

6:15 pm. On the track, in the dark, in the rain, with a tornado warning... Why did I think this would go well? 2 up. 1 mile @ 6:12. 2 down. Honestly, there was a cool reflective light on the track, almost as if the clouds were glowing. It was kind of neat. I signed up for a 10k today. I hope to use it as a tune-up for the marathon in January.

5.8 Miles. Ringling Bridge. 43:34. 7:31 pace. 5:20 pm start. 60 deg. 73% hum. 52 D.P. 15-20 mph winds out of the north + chop on the bay waters = Salty spray over the seawall + ringing right ear!

I'll be in Fruit Cove tomorrow, watching my sister in law finish her first half marathon, and then getting some deep fried turkey! I talked her into running that St. Patty's Day 8k with me only 8 months ago, and now look at her! Go Shannon! Happy Thanksgiving, all!

7.85 miles in Fruit Cove, Fl. Began run 2 hours AFTER dinner. 4:30 pm start. 1:00:11. 7:40 pace. 56 Deg., 53 hum., 37 d.p. The food was fantastic. I forgot how awesome the sweet potato casserole is. Wow.

I was still on the drive up here when Shannon finished her race. Her goal was below 2:30. She got 2:10:58, I think. So she is pretty excited.
