Short-Term Running Goals:

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



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

3M easy run this morning just to keep the legs fresh.  Ran in a singlet and light gloves at 7:30am to mimic the start tomorrow and it was perfect at about 42 degrees.

Ran in my Tangents this morning and they felt pretty good, a little tight on the right foot but worked it out by the end of the run.  Trying to decide which shoes to run in...Tangents to gain the racing weight advantage (ran the Poky marathon in them but not a marathon yet) or my Stratos which I have run every marathon in but are a  bit heavier.  Argh! 

Take it easy today playing with the kids, doing a short hike with the families, walk with Kami, pasta dinner then early to bed.  My buddy Rob is going to drive Rachel and I to the start in the morning and then bring the families down to the finish later.  Ready to go!

total time:  21:17  (Saucony Tangents - 97.5 miles)

By the way, I've worn Tangents for my marathon and they were great- plenty of support the whole way.
