Goal Type:

Boston Qualifier

Running Accomplishments:

Fastest Mile- 4:40 High School Track

Fastest 5K-16:50 High School Cross Country

Fastest 10K-40:30 Junior High School/Desert News 10K

Fastest Half Marathon - 1:40:15 Haunted Half Oct 2016

Short-Term Running Goals:

I've been a very active runner since High School ( I usually run 5-6 days a week) but I have yet to run a Marathon or any other competitive race since then. I want to get back into competitive running and hopefully have similar results like in High School. Although, last January 09 I got shin splints really bad and it took a good 6 months of rest and rehab to finally get back in the groove. I would like to run a sub 8 minute mile on my first Marathon but maybe I should just worry about finishing it first?   

Long-Term Running Goals:

I want to qualify for the Boston Marathon.

Personal:

I'm 41 years old and I'm married! I enjoy the outdoors (Hunting, Camping, Backpacking)

This week has been awesome running! I haven't felt this good in months. My legs haven't given me any problems and I've finally been able to run back to back days. I ran 4 miles yesterday just under 29 minutes and my last mile was around 6:50. Today I ran 5 miles in 36.30. I haven't done that in quite a while. Every 3rd run has been a tempo run, I've been doing tempo running for about a month and a half now and it definitely has helped with my pace and endurance. Hopefully I'll keep improving and stay injury free.
