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)

7.5 miles. hood route. late start today and no miles yesterday because of my buddy's all day 40th birthday party, that started with an off shore fishing trip and ended with a killer sunset at the beach. It was really great.

Today is my parents' 51st anniversary. What do you talk about after 51 years?  I think you've covered everything by that point.

3.5 miles. hood route. 6 am start. This dew point below 70 thing is amazing. 

Every now and then, I get down to the end of a day, I'll have to stop, ask myself, "What've I done?" It just seems so useless to have to work so hard, And nothin' ever really seem to come from it. And then she looks me in the eye....

My running has been even more inconsistent than usual lately. I have really been throwing myself into sports with the boys. Basketball on Tuesday, soccer on Thursday. And again on Saturday and Sunday. It has been tough to get decent miles after really going in the evenings. Running is involved with those sports, but those aren't the only muscles you use when playing. Anyhow, I've been sore a lot lately. On the positive side, I have lost some weight. I did sprints with Tommy's soccer team last night. From this experience, I can safely say that I am not a sprinter (and I am also not 12!). You throw all of that non-running exercise in with a week of car and appliance trouble, and you get garbage for weekly miles. 

I have been following Colin McCourt's story since February, and I find his training inspirational.

If he pulls this off, he is my new running hero. It is crunch time! 3 months to go!

I'm going to try to get a run in tonight, after I install a new washer and dryer. 

7 pm. 3.5 miles on Venetian waterway park, behind Venice High School, under the friday night lights. I ran by in time to hear "Heeeeeeere come the Indians!" Something different. I always enjoy hearing Iron Man performed by a high school marching band (just as Ozzy intended).

Aside from breathing lint for the hour before I went running, the washer  and dryer installs were smooth.

7.5 miles. Hood route. 6:30 am start. Super hot and humid. I was spoiled last week with the decent weather.
