Long-Term Running Goals:

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

It has been many years since I've been on this blog.  I might try it again to record daily training. In 2016 I ran 4,742 miles, most ever for me in a calendar year.  I also finished 12 100-miler, also most in a year. 

50K at the Olympic Oval in 4:47.  Training for Rocky Racoon 100 in two weeks.  Feel ready.  It has been five years since I ran there.  In 2012, I ran it but finished with a massive stress fracture in my tibia and couldn't run for six months.  In 2013, I tried to return, but the leg started bothering me and I decided to not run, good decision.  But since that race in 2012, I've finished 36 more 100-milers and despite my advance age of 58, I'm good to go and still pretty fast.  I hope for my 87th career 100-mile finish, and my 6th at Rocky.

Since I left the blog in 2013, I've concentrated on doing a weekly very long run.  For me, it allows me to run more 100-milers, I recover much faster, and stay injury-free as I am very careful about my pace.  Each Saturday I hope to do a 50K run if possible if I find some place interesting to run. In 2016, I did 45 runs of at least the marathon distance or more and the average distance of those runs including the races was 59 miles.  So far, for 2017 I've run four runs of at least 50K or more, so a good start.  I've now run 315 runs lifetime of 50K distance or more.  Here are some of my detailed thoughts of the frequent long run.

Miles for the week, 84, mostly treadmill.  Weather sure has been crappy and I hate to go out and run when it is so cold.  Look forward to Texas next weekend running Rocky Raccoon 100 for the 6th time.  Should be warm and some rain.
