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

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. 42:24. 7:42 pace. I put my folks' Christmas stuff in the attic, and then went out. Not as long as I wanted to go because of the very late start, but the pace felt pretty good. Then I caught up on sleep.

I'm thinking that I will revise my short term running goals after my next race. I can't see past Baton Rouge right now. 

Also, January 9 marks 2 years of racing. It's one of those weird anniversaries that only I care about. It has got me thinking about what I used to think was possible, and how that has changed. I look at the (chubby?) guy in these pictures, and try to recall what was going through his head:

5.2 Miles. Ringling Bridge. 39:38. 7:37 pace. Great sunset. Cotton Candy Pink clouds. I saw a kid catching a fish, with his dad racing over to help him. Shirtless backwards visor dude was running without a visor. I don't know how I fared against him today. We were going in opposite directions. Also, I saw a very old man running up the bridge. We gave each other thumbs up. That would be cool to be out there pushing it like that guy some day. 10 days to race day. Every little ache in my legs is causing panic. Taking tomorrow off. I'm shooting for 16.25 Saturday, under 8 minute miles. Sunday is still a little up in the air.

16.25 miles. Legacy Trail. 2:14:33. 8:17 pace. Not as fast as I wanted, but it felt very smooth today. I didn't have to push hard to finish, and there were no alarming pains. Since I ran before sunrise, there were no amazing wildlife sightings. The stars were very clear, though. I have some ideas for what type of run I should have tomorrow ( week before race day), but I'm still undecided.
