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).

Woke up at 6 to go run but it was a steady downpour. Went back to bed, then ran on the Y TM at lunch time while watching Forrest Gump. Stupid is as stupid does.

"The answer, my friends, is blowing in the wind, the answer is blowing in the wind." I found the answer this morning.

10 moist muddy miles this fine Friday the 13th morning. I forgot my Dirty Girlz Gaiters so my feet filled with small pebbles as I learned which road not to run on after a rainstorm. I thought it would be hard packed but that was only true part of the time. 

Great weather though, 37F with a slight breeze and only a few raindrops. Snow on the ground a mile up from my house, but only a little bit of slushy stuff so it was pretty.

Fathers son campout near Columbus, so I got up not early and went for a run. Ran along a 65 mph two lane highway with a large shoulder and cars and trucks were giving me 20 feet of space, like I might suddenly dart into traffic like a deer. So weird to me why people do that.

When I started my Garmin was whacked again. It had me running an 11:00 pace but I know it was more like 9:00. I reset it and it seemed to work well the rest of the way. What up with my watch all of a sudden?
