Goofy 2011 - Can Not Wait!

Hey. This is Albert. I am a middle school teacher in Nashville, TN. I also coach middle school cross country. I want to thank Maddy for inviting me to write for this blog. I am definitely planning on doing the Goofy in 2011. It has been my dream ever since I started back running several years ago. I, along with my wife and 2 sons, am a huge Disney fan (we just got back from a trip a couple of weeks ago) and I love running as well. To combine the two would be a dream come true. So I am really looking forward to January 2011 and hope to meet a lot of you if you will be there.

Right now I am training for the St. Jude Marathon in Memphis which is about 3 weeks away. I have heard great things about this race and am looking forward to it. I'm trying to beat 4 hours this time. This will be my 2nd full marathon. I did the Country Music Marathon here in Nashville back in April and got 4:11. I have also done three half marathons in the last couple of years as well.

I love reading running blogs as well as listening to running podcasts. My blog is Click here to see it.

Please check it out, and if I don't have your running blog on my list, please let me know. I'm always looking for new ones. Good luck to everyone. Until then...

Keep runnin',


  1. Albert!

    Great! Looks like you are enjoying life and running! How much better can it get?

    I look forward to meeting you!


  2. Good luck with the Goofy in 2011! I'm doing it in 2010 with a bit of trepidation. I've done both the Disney half and marathon before, but never back to back. I'll let you know how it goes. My wife's done it the past two years and makes it look easy, but she's a machine when it comes to running.
