CommentsFor the next few weeks, I'll see how low I can drop my times and make a realistic assessment of this running project. Perhaps my turtle genes will prevail. I'll give it a shot. I'm glad you have this group. 
Fitness StatementI play on four soccer teams and run three of the other days during the week, although this doesn't add up to daily stress like it sounds. Most of my runs in the foothills in Golden have relentless inclines, and I savor my recovery periods. I just returned from the men's national soccer championships the last week in June, victorious for the third time with six full games in five days. In 100-degree heat in Escondido, we used our halftimes wisely and both the semi and final went to 30 minutes of overtimes, each with a halftime. My strength for your Doubles is in the Recovery Zone. In a broader sense, I'm turning to running once again to give a final shot at my maximum. I sustained a concussion in the second half of the championship game, so now I will transfer my energy and training to running faster. My goal is to find a sustainable grace to my stride that is actually fast. Right now, the grace is slow, but I can catch a bus if I need to. 
Quote“Like lucking into a flying dream one night, some runs have segments where the motion is so smooth you feel stationary and everything else is moving toward you, requiring no effort but the weird thought that you love this activity perhaps at its highest when it feels like you're not doing it at all.” 
Running AchievementsNone. In the late 1980s, I got third place in my age group for an inaugural event in Trinidad, Colorado. The event combined a 5K and 10K with lots of small-range age groups. My longest races are a half-marathon north of Chicago, the Running into Time Half-marathon above Salida, five Pikes Peak Ascents, and a few GoG 10-milers. And a loop a Palo Duro in Texas (12.5 miles).
