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.

Rattlesnake Gulch to Pipeline to Elbow Fork and back down the road. Had to double back a couple times. Sooooooo slow in the snow.

Indoor track. Only had enough time for 6 miles at 7:00 pace before gym closed. Ran first at 6:50 and passed a kid in a color run shirt after 1 mile. He tried to not let me pass, so I ran the next mile just fast enough to gap him (6:10) and was surprised that he nearly hung on. He quit after my 2nd mile, so I settled into 6:25 average after that, for 5 miles at 6:27 AaP. This is fast enough for my legs right now that I made sure to do the 6th mile at a cool down pace of 8:30 or so.

Good company for 14 miles at James's 32 mile birthday run. Nice, casual 8:11 AP with loops at Liberty.

 

First week over 60, 50, or even 40 miles since 2014. In fact, since the beginning of 2015, my highest mileage week was last week at 31 miles. Funny that I doubled that this week. I'm not good at running 40 or 50 mpw. It takes some actual effort to get out the door for 40 miles in a week, so if I'm going to do that much, I generally just do an actual decent week of running, which generally starts around 60 for me. Legs feel fine and are handling the mileage well.
