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 14.

I started running because someone dared me to.

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

My brother and his wife were at a recording of The Price Is Right about two weeks ago. He's been sending me photographs of his TV, where I can see them for the last hour. 

Our lives are very different.

1 mile on the hotel treadmill in Winter Haven. I realize that I hate treadmills. Then one mile outside the hotel. Tommy had a soccer tournament in Winter Haven this weekend. 3 games, 2 on Saturday. One on Sunday. They won 4-1, 6-1, and 8-1.
