Short-Term Running Goals:

2018 GOALS:

March 17- St. Patty's Day 8k

May 12 - Brookings SD Marathon

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 12.

I started running because someone dared me to.

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

7.5 miles. to Legacy Trail and Back. 59:30. 7:56 pace.

I need to sign up for a race soon. Not training "for" something makes for unfulfilling training miles. I considered the Fort Lauderdale A1A Marathon next weekend, but I can't see myself going into a race, knowing I will not be at my best. I'm still coughing a bit, and my paces haven't bounced back, like I had hoped. I wasn't going to run tonight, at all. But then a recap newsletter from Steamtown came in the mail yesterday, and I looked at it tonight, and then I went on to FRB, to see what everyone had done this weekend. I saw that the folks in Utah did a snowy 10k, and I was inspired. So, other than running a lot slower, at night, with no precipitation, or wind, or hills, by myself, in 50 degree warmer temps, they were, like, IDENTICAL runs!

Intermittent rain, but no wind. No crowds! Just me.

My stride felt longer, if that makes any sense. This was a satisfying run.

I think today officially ends my flu. What a month!
