MY GOALS.....My goal is to be an Age Division Winner and a Boston Marathon Qualifer & Participant as long as I can run this short, fat, tired old man body down the road!!! Ya know what I mean? This gettin' old crap isn't for the weak of heart, mind or spirit!
I'm still alive after all these years and I'm continuing to live my dreams my way!

Slick. I was just looking at your PRs. Dang! You ran a 17:45 5k in 2008! That a 5:43 pace. Very impressive.

I agree with Rhett ... Very Impressive! On top of that, how many Boston's?

Rhett - Looks like I got close to lucky one time nine (9) years ago when I was a bit younger! Now I struggle with a 23:something. Oh well, that's life in he fast lane. Here I am almost 67 and I'm still moving it down the road looking forward to another Boston. Now that is and has been my real running dream for so long along with training others to run! Thanks for the atta-boy!

IJR _ Twelve (12) Bostons in the bank and two (2) more in the heads up bag. Thanks to a fairly decent run at the Huntsville "Full Monte" I managed to get a double "BQ" for the Boston 2018 & 2019.So now the hard part starts, how do I get to the 2020 Boston? I surly would like to make my personal record fifteen (15) trips to the Boston Marathon finish line for me and my Cigar! Thanks for the kind thoughts Preston!
