 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.

This was a great way to stay motivated and get out there and bring the new year in right. It was a little cold but not as bad as it has been and no ice on the roads so good. I enjoyed running clockwise around Sugarhouse park, I held back the first lap and then started to go hard with a couple guys, passing them after the 2nd mile, I was trying to catch a girl in a flat head hat but as we did the 200 yard jog inside the dead end street in the middle of the park, she kept her pace and caught a young kid in orange,  I couldn't catch them and in fact was passed by one of the guys I had passed before but I felt I finished strong and enjoyed the race.  Brought the new year in by sitting on a bench and watching fireworks and praying for a good year.
