Keep on running, enjoy it for the sake of running, get some races in this year.

Help train my kids for XC/track, ride my bike with my wife more, stay healthy and fix niggles.

Lost Dutchman Marathon/Half

Boise Cause and Event 10k

A few 5k - HM over the summer

Long-Term Running Goals:

Keep running until this old body says no!  Now in the 45-49 AG.

Support my wife's endeavor to do long distance road biking and her renewed interest in running! Keep biking more with her as cross training maybe do a Century ride.

Lift weights more...lots more.

Born in 1968.  I live in Idaho Falls, ID.  I started running competitively in 2005 and ran my first marathon in 2005.

Bend down, O Lord, and hear my prayer;
answer me, for I need your help.
Protect me, for I am devoted to you.
Save me, for I serve you and trust you.
You are my God.
Be merciful to me, O Lord,
for I am calling on you constantly.
Give me happiness, O Lord,
for I give myself to you.
O Lord, you are so good, so ready to forgive,
so full of unfailing love for all who ask for your help.
Listen closely to my prayer, O Lord;
hear my urgent cry.
I will call to you whenever I’m in trouble,
and you will answer me.  - Psalm 86:1-7

Rain, slush, ice, wind combo outside this morning, so I decided to do the first TM run of the winter after dropping Justin off to take the ACT.  11.25 miles in 1:10...first 5K slow (20:30), next 5k faster (17:20), slow 5K (20:10), then the last 2 miles easy.  Got me motivated to do the gym again this winter.  (Altra Impulse)

Too cold to run outside, and did not feel like driving to the gym.  I did rehab, stretching and situps/pushups this morning after some lengthened prayer and devotion time.  Try to run at lunch.

Slammed today, no lunch run and retirement drinks for a friend after work...day off.

Tired, twingy knee and really cold outside...skipped the run and slept in. 

After a lot of stuff at work, snuck out for a lunch run.  5 miles in sun but cold.  Not ready for frigid cold conditions. (Ride 5)

Slept in this morning, no run.  I was going to try to run at lunch and preempted with lots of issues at work.  Unplanned day off (maybe try to go after work...).  3 miles after work.

Slept in and went out a bit late. Only 4 miles due to time and a twingy knee.  More later if time allows. (Mirage)

5 miles on a cold but sunny day at lunch. (Ride 5)
