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)

AM: 3.5 miles. Hood Route.

PM: Benderson Park south loop 3.5 miles (x2), Then north loop cool down 1.1 miles.

Yeah, it was warm, but that new post work loop I was running was painfully boring. If I'm going to melt out there, I might as well be looking at something interesting. The south loop is around a long rectangular lake, where they will have rowing competitions. Along one of the long straight aways, they have meter markers for the rowers(?) to see, in 250 M increments up to 2000 M. There is a possibility of turning this into one of those "track workout that is not on a track" things. Since the park is new, the trees are young, and there is little to no relief from the sun. If you chose to, there is a variety of surfaces to run on. I ran on grass, asphalt, and I did @ 1000 M on crushed shell. Very flat. You go over  a couple of bridges with (at most) 25' climbs. This is very close to work, and I will see if I can work something out there into the weekly routine.

Crushed shell - classic training surface.
