Running Accomplishments:

I have run 12 marathons, 5 since major surgery in 2005. My fastest was Leipzig in 1992. 3 hours 11 minutes 48 seconds. The Mesa-Phx Marathon on February 25, 2017 was the fastest since my surgery at 4:26:59.

Short-Term Running Goals:

I want to improve on my last Marathon time. After the Phoenix Marathon that I ran February 25, 2017 I want to focus on shorter races and do a sprint tri. I did improve about 45 minutes faster on the Mesa-Phx Marathon over the last Petrified Forest Marathon and about 27 minutes faster than the last time I ran the Mesa-Phx Marathon.

Long-Term Running Goals:

Continue to run and work on my speed. Do shorter races and a sprint tri in the next year.

Personal:

I have been an educator for 32 years. My wife, Margaret, and I have 6 children and at the present time 6 grandchildren. Running helps to keep me level. I love it and hope to continue to run for many years to come.

AM run. 56:57. 9:23 Pace. Tried to relax first mile and then do 1/2 mile pickups beginning with the 2nd mile through the 5th mile. Was going to run the last mile fast. Didn't work out. 9:20, 8:42, 9:23, 9:35, 9:34, and 9:41. 2nd mile was fastest but it had the downhill portions in it. 4th mile should have been fastest. 6th mile is almost completely flat but that didn't seem to matter.
