2017 Goals and Races?

Post by Dave Tuttle on Mon Jan 09, 2017 3:24 pm

My longer distance running has really suffered the last few years and I'm determined to get back into it this year. I always felt my best when I was knocking off a weekly long run of at least 10 miles in addition to my regular running routine and it kept the weight off too... I need to lose 20 pounds (4 down already) before I dare beat my knees up with too many miles so I'm building slowly while the weight drops for now. We'll see.

If the running Gods are with me I want to run at least one half marathon this year.

My main goal is to lose the five pounds that I gained in the period between Thanksgiving and Christmas.  That is a perennial goal because I can't resist all the pies, cakes, and cookies that are around my kid's homes at that time of year.  Linda watches me like a hawk the rest of the year, and won't let any of that stuff in our house.

In the grand scheme of things, I would love to get faster, stronger, and better looking.  The first one would defy all has happened in the last three decades, the second one is possible because anything I do in that area will be better than what I've done since college (when I was a trim 185 lb defensive back), and the third would require a ton of plastic surgery.

I think Vegas has the odds on any of those things happening at something like 1000 to 1 Sad

I see a recurring theme of weight loss and I need to raise my hand too. Ideally 10lbs. Funny how it creeps up on you.

Well I am now less than 100 days away from my first and likely only Boston Marathon. The panic is slowly setting in. I really just want to stay healthy for this.
