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 25+ years with two children (19 and 16).

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

Standard easy run this morning down Sunnyside.  A really easy first 2M then started picking up the pace to a 7:30 clip.  I "felt" my knees a little bit this morning, not a pain or issue, just could feel them.  I will take some ibuprofen just to ensure no inflammation is happening.

Trigon 2 - 325 miles

7M at lunch on a warm and windy day.  1M warmup with Jeff Fogg (8:00) then hit some slower MP miles (6:15-6:20ish) for 4 of the next 5M and 1M of cooldown at 6:45.  Good run, felt pretty solid but was working a bit harder than I wanted (maybe the wind and heat) and I still "felt" my knees a bit.  Mini-taper for the rest of the week heading into the HM this weekend.

Total time: 45:45  (Trigon 1 - 458 miles)

Jeff my first mile this morning was a 8:02 it must just have been the morning blues for us.

I hope your knee is okay you want to save it for the HM this weekend. What Half Marathon are you running?

My first miles lately have been 8:30+.

The race is the Run, Rock and Roll HM sponsored by Personal Best Peformance (just like the other IF races you ran). Come join me!

What's your time goal for the HM this weekend?

From jtshad on Tue, Jul 29, 2008 at 14:37:42

I hope to hit it between 1:15-1:17 (depending on weather, course distance accuracy, etc.) 2 years ago I ran this same race in 1:15:49. I would like minimally to finish at least at a 5:55 pace (1:17:30).

I would love to join you, but my daughter's are headed to church camp on Saturday so I have to get up real early to do my run. Which will be on the Poky course for the 6th week in a row.
