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

We woke up early to watch the Olympic Marathon...what a race!  Congrats to Stephen Kiprotich of Uganda (1st place) and Meb Keflhezghi of the USA (4th place) on great races.  Motivated me for my long run today.

I ran a solo 18 miler through SRL and around the greenbelt through Freeman Park then down Sunnyside in 2:02:00 (6:46 avg).  Threw in some MP miles and ran out of steam at the end.  When I got home, I ran 1.25 miles with Justin and Moxie in 10:30 for 19.25 miles overall.

Now for a family birthday party for Justin who is now a teenager!

That is one sweet run. What a great pace for a long run!

Yep, he is 13 and acting like a teenager!

Nice Jeff I wish we could do a long run together one of these days. Your doing the Pocatello Half?

From jtshad on Mon, Aug 13, 2012 at 12:55:22 from 204.134.132.225

50/50 depending on the travel and timing of Justin's XC meet in Soda Springs on that morning. His event is the first priority so I will have to see if I can squeeze in the half then drive to Soda.

Nice run. I agree about the Olympics bringing out some extra motivation.

It is frightening how quickly these kids grow up.

Have a great week.
