Short-Term Running Goals:

Keep running. I was recently diagnosed with Temporal Lobe Epilepsy, so my new goal is to not have any seizures, and keep running. Since my last seizure in Jan 2018 I haven't been able to run more than 6 miles at once. Hoping the mileage can come back, but future races are out as I don't know what each day will bring. But I'm not dead and don't have a terminal disease, and for that I count my blessings.

Long-Term Running Goals:

Not get super fat, and run another marathon or ultra sometime soon.

Personal:

Started running seriously in March 2010. Married 21 years to a hot momma and we have 3 boys, 1 sweet girl, 2 dogs, 3 2 0 1 cat, and 6     4 5 6 3 5 3 1 chicken + 3 2 new chicks (spring 2018). My day job is Learning Architect for a regional bank in MT, WY, SD, OR, ID, and WA. In May 2017 I joined our local School Board as a Trustee for a 3 year term.

Thanks! And I've always been fascinated about the pullup thing, as most women, no matter how fit, have a hard time with them. Searched the web and found this tidbit. Women have 40% less muscle mass in their upper extremities than men. So strange.
