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 3:46:02 (8:48 pace)

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)

10 miles. Legacy Trail. Laurel Road to just south of Circus Bridge and back. 75 Deg. 46% hum., 53 d.p. Clear, Blue Skies! Awesome weather! Boy #2 paced me on his bike. No injuries. No crashes. No GI issues. Boy #1 and Spouse stayed home. They both still feel rotten. As bad as I feel about skipping church because everyone was sick, I have to feel pretty good about how well this run went.

7.5 miles. Hood Route to Legacy Trail and back. 5:45 am start. 57 deg., 75% hum., 58 d.p. Slow. On the way back, a woman stopped her car to let a family of otters cross the street. Those things are way more graceful in water. Cars were backed up and honking. 

Then, at work, we designed a new playground next to the Ringling Bridge. I was out on site this morning, meeting with the contractor and the sub that will be installing the rubberized surfacing. I was just about to go back to  the office, when some guy jumped off the bridge. When I got back to the office, the Sarasota PD's facebook page had an explanation of what happened, and why traffic was backed up. That story got 5 "Likes"! What, in that story, is like-able? 

Gonna be a weird week.

12.9 miles. Legacy Trail to Venice Avenue and back, 11:00 am start. Fantastic weather. Low 50's start. Mid 50's finish. Clear skies. 10 mph winds. Nice. I still have a bit of a sore throat, and a slight cough. This has been a wacky week.
