Become able to train at a reasonably high level again
Get sort of fast again
Build up enough base to not embarass myself too badly at the 2017 Bear 100
Long-Term Running Goals:
Stay healthy, make steady incremental improvements, eventually get under 1:10 in the half marathon and 2:30 in the marathon.
I am a bioengineering PhD currently working as a post-doctoral research fellow in the Department of Neurology at the University of Utah, where I design neurosurgical approaches for treating movement disorders. I was sort of fast until I put running on the back burner at the end of grad school and am trying to get sort of fast again now.
