Running Accomplishments:

Once beat Cheryl at the Hobble Creek Half Marathon about three years ago, and kept up with Peggy for 100m four years ago. Completion of 52 marathons to date.

I enjoy the marathon distance. It demands consistency in training and provides a constant goal to work towards. Could not run without the support of my great family and friends. 

Short-Term Running Goals:

Stay healthy would be the number one goal. To accomplish this long-term feat I need to cross-train and add strength training into the mix.

Long-Term Running Goals:

Someday I would like to qualify for Boston although at the moment it seems very tough!

Personal:

Love running, music, art, food, friends and family in no particular order it just depends on the day.

Back at the St. George Marathon. This is number 7 for me. I felt good and had taken plenty of time to stretch and loosen up. I felt great during the race and kept a fairly even pace. At mile 24 my big toe started to cramp up and have a shooting pain. I had to stop and stretch out my foot and then things improve.

 This was not one of my fastest races but I enjoyed being around a ton of runners and visiting with friends after the race. I especially enjoyed the ice cream at the Blue Bunny booth.

4 mile run at lunch time and then I did a very slow jog with my son Nathan later in the evening.

Another lunch-time run. It was cool and a little drizzle was falling which made it very nice

Not much of a time for a run so I climbed the stairs in the Church Office Building twice to get some nasty cardio in for the day. My quads were burning like they were on fire but it will pay-off if I run the stairs periodically.

I dragged myself out of bed at 5am and put in a run. I have been listening to an audiobook that I just can't put down so it made getting up earlier a bit more tolerable. It was a nice run, cool with a bit of the Fall humidity but very pleasant. 

Still going through post-marathon season depression. Was not able to accomplish anything near what I wanted to but still enjoyed running the marathons. It is becoming more about running than racing.

Took a few days off because of stomach flu. Probably lost a couple of pounds, now if I could only keep them off. I would call this one a jog because it was slow, trying not to barf.

Finally back to business. It has been a whole week since I have even took a walk let alone go for a run. This stomach flu bug was a killer and had me in bed for an entire week. It was nice to be out for a run because the temp was perfect and the leaves are incredible. I took it very easy trying not to upset my stomach.

 Oh well, there goes my 200 for October goal but November is just around the corner.
