It would seem that my text was out of date. I'm currently focusing on shorter runs and races due mostly to time constraints. I'm also doing alot more ST. My 49th birthday on November 6, is a big deal for me and growing old is my greatest fear, so I keep fighting back. :-)

My Goals:
Currently I am training to run the Hyannis Marathon with the hopes of qualifying for Boston.
I have more short term goals but the long term goal - the goal that really matters, will be a result of completing the short term goals. THAT goal is to live healthy well into old age so that I can continue to do the things that I want to do and live my life the way I want to live it, not be imprisoned in my home by frailty or even worse.

My Program:
I try to eat well - whole grains, vegetables and fruit - very little red meat (or any other kind of meat for that matter) and to maintain my glucose, pasta, rice, etc...

Training - Push hard and when you think you can't push any more, push harder still!

Personal Information:
I live in Connecticut. Married. Three children and four step children, all of whom I love dearly. I'm 50 and an avid runner, exercise nut.
I am currently completing a degree in Computer Networking and hope to find a better job when it is done.

Other Information:
I love movies. Not a big t.v. fan but there are a few shows I enjoy like Leverage, Fringe, House and Bones.

Sounds like you need salt and more long runs to build your endurance.

Tough. It got way too warm for me and despite the fact that I was drinking water and gatorade to try and keep up, it just wasn't enough. I NEVER do good when the temps get past the mid 50's.
I was FABULOUS through15/16 miles but it was all downhill from there. I learned a valuable lesson today though - DON'T run 26 miles on an oval (more or less) that has a pretty obvious left-down cant to it. Bad for the left knee. The OTHER thing I already knew but I was committed (the heat). So, marathons in WINTER ONLY! lol
I lost almost 2 minutes per mile in the last 10 miles which will give you a good indication of how hard it was for me. Ah well, there WILL be another and it WILL be in cooler weather. :-)
Plus, despite the fact that I didn't feel I could go on after the 20 mile mark, I pushed myself to finish and I'm proud of that despite the resulting time
