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.

Got eye drops Wednesday night. Went to Dr. Thursday afternoon. Got an oral antibiotic too.  Eyes are feeling better but everything else is keeping me down.  If I feel great later today I may run some on the treadmill. I have been putting some thought into why i am running as slowly as i am at 5000 feet. I don't know if the cold and the amount of clothing i am wearing is affecting it or not. I didn't think there was any way i could run my marathon two weeks ago as fast as i did with as many miles under 9 Minute pace as i did. I have run some that fast at 5000 ft but not consistently. The hills seem to get to me as well. I don't know if i really need to save as much as i do for the end of each run but i don't speed up often. Just typing as i think. I do think that having access to a track one a week or more would help me with my pacing.
