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.


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)

Got up to run this morning, but put it off until the afternoon. 3.5 miles around Benderson south lake. Pretty hot. I threw the cast net a whole lot this weekend, teaching the boys, and now my shoulder is a bit stiff. The first time Tommy got the net all the way open was great! I just wish he would have caught a fish!

We should invent a duathlon, where you run a 5k, and then fish. The winner has the best time / biggest fish. I'm sure this exists someplace. If they have speed golf, they have got to have this.

5:30 am start, Hood route. 1.5 miles. Had to go back home. Then 5.5 miles. Rained on the way back. Not a great start to the day, but I got some miles in.

The kids had their first football conditioning practice tonight. The coaches were saying things to them that I say all the time. But for some reason, I think they heard it tonight. Maybe if I had a whistle,...nah. Anyhow, they are going to sleep well tonight!

7.5 miles. Hood Route. 5:30 am start. So humid. How humid? ..... Sounds were muffled.

Skipping the Celery Hill tonight. I have other obligations. I'm sure the gnats will miss me.

9:15 pm start. Hood route. I felt guilty about not running this morning, so I went out and ran tonight. You know, with the light breeze, it wasn't half bad! It was warm as usual, but just without the bonus gravity. It was pretty steady moving.

am: 3,5 miles. Hood Route. Slow and clunky. Last nights run was a bit too late.

pm: 8.6 miles. Venetian Waterway Park with Johnny on his bike. The rain stopped long enough for us to go. Tonight we did the West side of the intracoastal waterway. We saw eleventy rabbits, and one really cool owl that took off in flight as we passed. There were several gopher tortoise burrows near the airport. For some reason he decided to "Boo" loudly at Venice High. That was kind of weird. We saw the sunset over the ICW. When we got back downtown, there was a singer / guitarist playing at the gazebo, so we went over to check it out. Then I let Johnny play in the fountain. Oh yeah, the running was also good.

They are going to get bored with this someday, and it is going to be very sad for me. But for now, these runs have been great.

am: 5.5 miles. hood route. 7 am start. Like I was swimming.

pm: 5.5 miles Legacy Trail from the Train station north to Laurel and back with Johnny on his bike. We really had to push it at the end so we wouldn't get home too late. Great sunsets over Roberts Bay and Dona Bay. He now has 39.6 bike miles on the trail in 14 days. Tommy has 25.5.

It was my goal to hit 55 miles per week for June. Johnny was nice enough to go out with me for the last 5. Hopefully, next week will not have the miles so loaded to the end of the week.
