 I rank somewhere between the competitive recreational runner and the competitive highschool runner. Here's the scale:

10 - World record holder; 9 - Olympic Athlete; 8 - National elite; 7 - Professional runner; 6 - College All-american; 5 - College runner; 4 - Local elite; 3 - Competitive runner; 2 - Recreational runner; 1 - Jogger

It's a tough scale.

Short-Term Running Goals:

 

  • Run for fun and health, be fit in my 40s
  • Run a strong half marathon, under 1:25, good, under 1:20, great.

Long-Term Running Goals:

  • Be a disciplined runner, to be competitive in my age category, and feel strong while racing.
  •  Somehow actually put together a full year of running: increased discipline and decreased distraction and injuries
  • Be a 17/36 guy for 5K/10K (not realistic now)
  • Be a competitive Master's runner

Personal:

Spoken for, Christian, piano player, soli deo gloria, at least that's the ideal. Living for Triune God, beautiful wife, cute sons, self; hopefully in that order but Adam's nature and my own choices, not to mention worldly temptations like to play with the ideal.

Idealism, tempered by reality, with a healthy skepticism.

AAAAAAAAH! Why does typing a long entry make it disappear?

5 paragraphs and 45 minutes gone.

Good thing God never forgets.

7 minute first mile, BK side by side then forged ahead. Group of 6 with me lagging. Promised myself to hit the water on the way back and go (2/4 mile mark). 21:55 at half, feeling the 3 points to the wind. Pushed it, BK out of reach, DC forgettaboutit. One guy tied his laces, then caught back up and passed no-shirt. I was 37 at 5m and pushing it but just staying the same. Around the last bend and more finally caught no shirt, he encouraged me to beat laces, which I gruntingly did beyond the .2. Can definitely push harder, just don't know this edge with no mileage. Hope to run a minute faster on course through the 15K if foot will let me.

All praise to incomprehensible yet knowable God who reveals Himself through the God-Man who offers eternal salvation to all who simply believe in Him.
