Long-Term Running Goals:

I would like to keep running ultras into my 60s. 

Personal:

Details at: http://www.crockettclan.org/ultras/ultracrockett.pdf Married with six kids and six grandchildren.  Started running at the age of 46 in 2004.  My first race since Junior High days was a 50K. I skipped the shorter road stuff and went straight to ultramarathons.  I started as a back-of-the packer, but have progressed to a top-10-percent ultra finisher.  Wish I would have started running at a much earlier age.  Have had several articles published in national running magazines.  Check out my running adventure blog at www.crockettclan.org/blog

More treadmill, Flats today, 8-7:30 pace with 2% incline.

Went to the doctor and dentist to take care of my non-running problems.  I found out that I'm actually a teen-ager.  That explains a lot.  I need to go have a wisdom tooth taken out.

That wisdom tooth will probably put you out of running longer than any running related injury you've had in the last year.

And there has never been a question about whether you were a teenager or not.
