Short-Term Running Goals:

Keep on running, enjoy it for the sake of running, relax and enjoy life...de stress.

No racing, retired.

 

Long-Term Running Goals:

Keep running until this old body says no, running for fun.

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.

 

Personal:

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

Married for 24 years with two children (18 and 15).

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

4 easy untimed miles with Moxie early on a warm morning (41 degrees).   A nice morning for a taper week run.   Feeling pretty good.

A good new fun option/dilemma for Boston.  My brother secured us seats at the Red Sox game on Wednesday night (great seats on third base line near home plate at ground level!).  But we are scheduled to check out of our hotel and go to Plymouth that afternoon and the downtown hotel rooms are still expensive that night!  So, trying to figure out a way to make it work...probably check out, get our rental car, park at the hotel (or delay getting the car if possible), go to the game, drive to Plymouth that night (only about 40 minutes away...a doable drive later in the evening, especially with our GPS in hand).   Either way, another good thing for the family on our trip!

As a baseball fan, Fenway and Wrigley are definitely on my bucket list. The last of the old landmark stadiums. Hope you can make it work. Good luck on Monday. I'll be watching.

Very nice! I love baseball! Marlin and I will need to do to that some day!
