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.

Went out to run early. Was going to try a 3 loop route that should be 4 miles but has fewer hills. Half way through the first loop a dog came after me. I faced off with it and then walk away backwards before starting to run again. I changed the course and went shorter because I was running late. The dog only barked once and then was right on me so it was kind of weird. I will try that course in daylight next time I try it. There are not many homes in this loop compared to regular neighborhoods. I ran pretty slow although it was a little lighter than it has been. 22:50. When it is cold and dark I have been running very slow.
