Short-Term Running Goals:

Get sort of fast again

Build up enough base to not embarass myself too badly at the 2017 Bear 100

Stay healthy, make improvements, eventually get under 1:10 in the half marathon and 2:30 in the marathon.

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 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.

14 on JRP around 2:30 PM. 13 at 6:57 AP then 1 mile very slow to recover from the beating the sun gave me. Pace was fine, but 95F with 97 "Real feel" made it harder to stomach 13 semi-fast miles.
