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)

7.75 miles. hood route to legacy trail over SWOM bridge and back. 8 am start. Soul sucking heat. I mean, I have run in hot weather before, but this one was bad. no breeze. no rain. but a lot of rain before and after. 89 degrees. 99% hum. 82 d.p. Steam coming up from the roadways. I knew within 50 yards that this run was going to be hard to breathe. It was like running with an undersized snorkel. It was like someone soaked a beach towel with vegetable soup and then draped it over my head and shoulders before I started running. It was like...well you get the idea. emergency bathroom stop at mcdonalds at mile 2. they were blasting frankie valli in that echo chamber bathroom. 

1. i finished the run. 2 i didn't die. 3. i saw a rainbow. 4. there were no gnat clouds to run through, like usual after rains. 

the kids start school tomorrow. I've got one in high school now. How did that happen?

3.5 Miles. Hood route. 6 am start. slightly better weather this morning. 79 degrees. 99% hum. 79 d.p. feels like 85. I felt like a humidity plow, and I was leaving a moisture wake behind me.
