Marathon PR - 3:05 (3:06 at Boston)
Completed a dozen marathons and a handful of 50 mile ultras.
Short-Term Running Goals:
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.

Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever! Psalm 118:29
0.75 miles - 3 x Superset of quarter mile run barefoot followed by boxing work and basic exercises with weights
4 miles - Legs were tired and heavy from squats yesterday. A little faster pace near the end.
7 miles - Over lunch hour. On the treadmill to give my hamstrings time to recover from squats. Gradually faster paces, up to 8.7 mph, after 40 minutes of easy pace when my heart felt ready.
8 miles - Easy pace in the dark before work. Slight speed buildup during last miles.
6 miles - Easy pace for about 27 minutes. A handful of speed surges at various lengths the rest of the way.
