Completed a dozen marathons and a handful of 50 mile ultras.

Make a come back from setbacks and build aerobic base. Pacemaker implant for Symptomatic Bradycardia in 2016. Cardiac ablation for SVT in 2019.
Long-Term Running Goals:
Lose about 50-60 lbs. and maybe complete another marathon.
Enjoy doing stuff I wasn't built to do. Married with children, and two fluffy dogs.

Marathon Pace Miles
VO2 Max Miles
9 miles - On the treadmill for convenience sake. Listened to some Shostakovich to keep my mind occupied. Pace at just under 9 minute miles.

Classical music! No way could I properly process Shostakovich while running, I'm impressed. Apparently he used to tick off Stalin with his supposedly political symphonies, but I can't hear anything but notes and chords.

Oh yes, Shosta is one of those composers that captures the essence of the long distance runner in some symphonies. Lots of ups and downs with a very strong emotional finish (7, 12, and 5).
