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)

5:45 am: 1.5 mile Runfail. I didn't have it. legs too beat up from yesterday/ brown rice, chicken, sausage pig out at midnight / back chaffing from camelpak - take your pick.

3 pm. 3 miles to the track with 2 boys on bikes. 2 miles on track. 4 miles to pool. 0.5 miles home. 85 deg. 75% hum. 73 d.p. totaly different dynamic than last weeks' run with only 1 kid on a bike on a trail. this week we had to watch for traffic, i had to speed up to catch the one kid, slow down for the other kid, etc. It was still an enjoyable experience, and (I think) a good workout (lots of speed variation), that can be improved upon. I must have worked out the kinks from yesterday's stuff with this morning's little runfail, because this all felt great. Boy # 1 did 3 laps on the track with me. He really wants to do that 5k, and I think i found a good one for him in mid-november. Also, today was his first time serving as an acolyte at church. big day for Tommy. I got pretty choked up.

5:15 am. Legacy trail. Intended to do more, but @ 6.75 miles the mouthpiece of the Camlebak just popped off, draining water on me. Weird. I looked for it in the dark for @ 15 minutes. To stop the water from running out, I drank too much of it. So, I ran back home with the hiccups. No fun. When I got home, Tommy was ready to run with me, so we did 0.9 miles together. I'm going to try to get a couple of more miles this afternoon.

4:30 pm run: Hood route. 7.5 miles. 58:21. 7:47 pace. 82 deg. 58% hum. 66 d.p. This is about as far as I want to go without water, I think.
