Short-Term Running Goals:

2018 GOALS:

March 17- St. Patty's Day 8k Out of town soccer tournament. It's back on, and I'll be racing both of my sons! 32:56, (6:38 pace)

May 12 - Brookings SD Marathon 3:27:37 (7:56 pace)

October 7 - Towpath Marathon, Boston, OH 3:46:02 (8:48 pace)

One Tempo Run, One Interval Workout, and One Long Run per week. 50-60 mpw. The world's most simple training plan. 

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, 11, and 13.

I started running because someone dared me to.

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

5.5 miles. Hood route. 46 degree start. I'm proud of myself for not over dressing like a Floridian in Chilly weather. Just my usual running clothing.

7.75 miles. Hood route to legacy trail, and over the brand new stupid waste of money overpass over laurel road and back. After watching this thing be built for the last year and a half, I HAD to run over it. Now that construction is done, I will miss the P.O.P. at this location for sure.

My feelings about the new stupid overpass aside, this was a really great run for me. Quick paced and smooth and comfortable.
