Short-Term Running Goals:

Stay healthy!

Would like to BQ - need to shave 23 minutes off PR.


Long-Term Running Goals:

Keep running.

When I started running my wish that turned into a goal was to qualify for Boston. Just so I could say "I qualified for Boston."

AFTER BQ, I think I will do some Tri events.  For sure some Half Ironman events, and see where that takes me.

Personal:

Married to Kelly (with a 'Y')

Kelly and I ran the race together.  I have been worried this would be the first and last for Kelly.  She has had a hard time with her foot for the past year.  But, Kelly ran this and even did a heal click at the finish line.  She had energy to spare. Kelly let me sign us up for the runners series.  I would like to run again next year.  

 

As for this race. The start was good.  Everything seemed fine up to Veyo. About the middle of the hill I started feeling yuck.  So we did a run walk up the remainder of the hill.  Something I have noticed this year is I have been having a very hard time going up hills.  It's like I have a hard time breathing.  Things just got worse for me from there for me.  Kelly was awesome.  She kept us going.  So many times I was ready to quit, but she stayed strong.

About mile 16 we picked up a kid that was having a hard time.  Seemed like we were playing leap frog for 2-3 miles prior to that.  He stayed with us to the end.  Once we crossed the finish line we never saw him again. 

I had a good time.  I am very proud of Kelly for running her first marathon, and dragging me with her.  I'll have figure out what my problem is. 

 

Happy running!
