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.

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 from competitive racing.

Married for 26 years with two children (20 and 17).

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

6M slow on a warmer morning (40 degrees) with a bit of wind.  Just an easy run for a 4:15am start in 46 minutes.  Hammy feeling ok.  (Stratos 2)

7.1M at lunch on a cool overcast day, not bad for running.  Started with 3 easy warmup miles (6:35 avg.) then ran 4.1 M at MP (6:04 - 6:14) to just get the blood pumping and it felt good, overall avg of 6:22.  Hamstring was pretty good today too. Shoes may be close to their limit as I felt a little stress in my right achilles today. (Stratos 1)

My friend Lynette ran the Zeitgeist HM in Boise over the weekend and scored 2nd Master (1st in AG) with a 1:39..smokin' time and yet another great showing for her (after winning the Master at the Poky HM).

Good to hear that the hamstring is feeling better.

It's nice that it's 40 degrees at 4:15am for you. Your getting in some good quality miles. I thought about running the Boise Half Marathon vs the local one I ran, but being sick that changed my decision and didn't want to drive that far.

Nice runs.
