* = 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:

2019 GOALS:

Bring running fast back.

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, 12, and 13.

I started running because someone dared me to.

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

5.5 milrs. Legacy trail with Johnny on his bike again. Today, we waited until after sunrise. The fog this morning was super thick. Crossing Dona Bay and Roberts Bay was really cool. He told me to "kick it up a notch" for the last mile. 6:38. Yesterday, the surf was pretty big for gulf coast standards. The life guard whistled and yelled at us, so we went to a no-life-guard beach. The boys had saucer sized eyes dropping in and riding the waves on their boogie boards. It's one of those Best Dad or Worst Father kind of things.

5:30 pm: Island Walk Mini Bridge 800's. The last time I did this, I had measured the 800s wrong. They were 57' short. Problem is now fixed. Anyhow, 81 deg., 77 % hum., 73 d.p. No breeze. None. Bonus Gravity. 2.7 up. (4) x 800 over 5  mini-bridges w/ 4 minute rest between. 3:01, 3:05, 3:02, 3:07. 2.7 down. The cool down was pretty difficult. I still go over the bridges on the warm up and cool down. They break the stride. They are inconsistently spaced, and have transitions that are arced, like a skateboard ramp. Fun stuff. To see the bridges, Google image search this: island walk bridge west villages.

Big day, lots to comment on.

-nice notch

-no one died, so they'll remember it as a "best dad" moment

-73 dp is a total rip off

-are those the famous "The Villages" from the commercials? the retirement community where all the old folks are playing shuffleboard and having a great time? I want to live there now.

THAT villages is about 3 hours north of here. And it foes look really cool.

i love the "no one died" standard. It is a solid argument. We took the day off from the beach yesterday, to go to celery mound and sled down the side on cardboard boxes. Back on schedule today. Back to the beach.

Looks awesome. Not sure I would get any running done if I lived there :)
