2019 Running Schedule

Feb - Mesa Phoenix Marathon (AZ): 2:37:45. Lingering flu didn't help, but I still got a PR.

April - Bonneville Shoreline Trail Marathon (UT). Mostly just going to be a training run. Finally got myself into the sub-4 club last year, so I'll just have fun with it this year.

May - Stillwater Half Marathon (MN). Goal race for Spring. Looking for ~1:12.

October- Chicago Marathon (IL). We'll see where I'm at in Fall, but probably will be looking for low 2:30s.

Long-Term Running Goals:

Stay healthy, make improvements, maximize my potential.

Personal:

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 and improve neurosurgical approaches for treating movement disorders.


Summer 2018 update: I'm lazy about copying over from Strava, so find me over there for day-to-day runs until I eventually get around to copying everything over here.

Longest run in months! 12 miles, out and back on Orchard, at 7:07 AP. First 9 were 7:19 average, and last 3 were 6:29 average, which isn't actually marathon pace, but it feels like it right now.  Skechers are at 410.6 miles now and still going!

Out the door before 7 am! It seems that AM is the time for me to run. Very easy pace... 8:06 average. Still slow, even with a fair amount of uphill. I'm so slow moving in the AM that my first mile was 8:45!

Morning, but 8am rather than early. Knew that Daria was feeling pretty sick and planning on sleeping until 9-ish, so didn't need to get out the door early. 7:22 AP to get home within a minute of her waking up. Perfect.

 

I wish they'd finish up that 5th South Bountiful construction, as it doesn't feel very safe to cross under the highway around there.

From campus after lunch. Calf cramped at 4 miles and felt bad rest of the run. Annoying. Would've done more otherwise. 7:16 AP with moderate hills.
