Short-Term Running Goals:

Keep on running, enjoy it for the sake of running, relax and enjoy stress.

No racing, retired.


Long-Term Running Goals:

Keep running until this old body says no, running for fun.

Support my wife's endeavor to do long distance road biking and her renewed interest in running! Keep biking more with her as cross training maybe do a Century ride.

Bend down, O Lord, and hear my prayer;
answer me, for I need your help.
Protect me, for I am devoted to you.
Save me, for I serve you and trust you.
You are my God.
Be merciful to me, O Lord,
for I am calling on you constantly.
Give me happiness, O Lord,
for I give myself to you.
O Lord, you are so good, so ready to forgive,
so full of unfailing love for all who ask for your help.
Listen closely to my prayer, O Lord;
hear my urgent cry.
I will call to you whenever I’m in trouble,
and you will answer me.  - Psalm 86:1-7

6:00am...I took Moxie out for a couple of miles before meeting the group for a long run.  Craig, Curt, Gray, Lynette and Trevor were all at the corner at 6:30.  Did an initial 6 mile loop through SRL running mostly easy with Lynette and Curt, then a bit faster with Gray. We dropped off Trevor and headed back out. Lynette and Curt stayed with us and ran for a few more miles, then Gray, Craig and I finished off about 16.5 miles.  Gray really started pushing the pace the last 5 miles (he was feeling good!) and we were running sub 7:00 pace and coming back to the corner I was in the 6:20 the end of an 19 miler, not too bad.  Eased home for a 19.25 mile run in 2:20 (about a 7:17 average pace, negative split big time). 

I was really feeling it by the end of the run, longest run in a while, good training run for Surf City.

Now for a day taking down all the Christmas decorations and going to Tom's life celebration.

Nice run Jeff. Surf City sounds pretty great right now! When we were there for the Long Beach 1/2, I got the sense that area had a lot of pretty good races - flat course and great weather too!

Thanks, I am looking forward to getting away, running at sea level on a flat course...will work but run as an overdistance training run for Boston shooting for around 2:40-2:45.

Solid long run Jeff. Great pace there at the end. Best of luck as you get ready for Surf City and then Boston after that. The elevation change should provide a nice little boost.

Really enjoyed it this morning Jeff. Fun to get out with you guys, I always know I'm in for it when it's that group that shows up.
