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)

7.5 miles. Hood route. 5:30 a.m. start. Really tough to get out the door this morning. Hill stuff and meteor shower later.

6:15 pm start. Celery mound. 1.5 up. 8 x 0.1 mile hill sprints, jog down, 1 minute rest between. 0.5 down. Had to cut short to get the kids at football.

7.5 miles. Hood route. 5:45 am start.

6:40 pm start. 5.5 miles during football practice. Hood route.

8:30 pm start. 0.4 miles around the block after football to get my miles to 60. I don't know if that run provided me any physical benefit, but ending the week with 59.6 is just unacceptable.

Kids' Football is my life all weekend. Spouse is out of town and it is Jamboree weekend - kind of like pre-season. Tommy has to be at the field 6:45 am for weigh in. then wait 2 hours, then a half hour scrimmage. then wait an hour, (while I'm in the concession booth), then another half hour scrimmage. In short, tomorrow is shot for running.

Then I do the whole thing all over again on Sunday with Johnny! I plan on running Sunday night when spouse gets back.
