Short-Term Running Goals:

I would like to run an Olympic Trials Qualifier in the marathon.

I would also like to run on one more international team before I pack it in!

 Stay healthy!  (My biggest challenge!)

Long-Term Running Goals:

Run my whole life, and then live vicariously through my children. (just kidding) , but I do want to pass on a healthy lifestyle to them.

Help coach East High to a state championship. (hope it doesn't take a lifetime!)

Personal:

I've been running since I was nine.  I'm married to a fellow runner who inspires and supports me.  We have two children:  Cole (4) and Lily (18 mos.)  I help Bill Cobler coach cross country at East High School.

1.5 mile warm up. Progressive tempo. 80 minutes. 12.6 miles.

I'm going to need a couple of very easy days.

Took a few miles to warm up today. Didn't feel too bad after yesterday's tempo. I need to make sure not to get too excited and amp up too quickly. I may try to get another run this evening, but more likely will double up tomorrow. I'm right on track for 80 miles this week. 7:23 average.

AM: Early morning run trying out my new DS trainers. I wanted a lightweight trainer for longer workouts that give me more support than my flats. They felt good, but a little stiff in the toes. 9 miles. Felt great after a shorter day yesterday. I will run another 4 or 5 later.

PM: 4.25 with Cole on his bike.
