5.7 mile run, 7:40 pace/Thoughts of BQ’ing

I ran under a 8:00 minute pace for the first time in a while and it felt great.  After reading and following the Boston Marathon, I looked up what I needed to qualify.  3 hours, 20 minutes, which is a 7:38 pace. Wow!  Amazing how my outlook changes on things, at first I was like Boston is not a big deal, blah, blah…..    But how the tides have turned, to qualify and run Boston would be an amazing experience.  But to qualify would a huge challenge, who knows how many marathons it would take for me to qualify as well.  Something to put on the back burner for now.

So anyways I decided match my BQ time on this run, didn’t achieve the exact pace,  but felt good to run fast.  I have to remember to keep pushing myself as a runner.

My sweetie is proud of her snowman she made, or I should say Sammy as the name she gave him. Family skate day. My mom at a young 70 lacing up the skates! My favorite girl.
#mysweetie So intense. Power and strength to the max. Who says dinosaurs don’t exist. Sunday morning 3 mile barefoot run. Blowing the dust off the skins. I like to incorporate deadlifts with my back workout. This was my last set of 240lbs for 6 reps. Seeking that 300lb mark down the road.

It’s starting to warmup in the garage, 25 degrees this morning. “I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.” MLK 🔥
