2017 Goals:

Try to get my mileage back up.

Stay injury-free an entire season.

Just enjoy running.

Long-Term Running Goals:

Maybe run a Marathon once in a while....but I am not in that competitive mode anymore.

I'm in the 50-54 Age Group.....Yikes!

It was 60 degrees this morning with a light breeze.  I ran almost 2 miles before I met with our group, then I ran 4 1/2 with Tracey.  He is just getting back in after an injury and is training for the half-marathon in 3 weeks.  I ran 7.30 miles.

Asics 2150 (Blue) Miles: 7.30
