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 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

Went to an early breakfast with a Pastor friend, then went for a run at 9am.  5 miles with Moxie, trying to get home in time for TV technician visit.  Got postponed so I went back out for 4.5 miles solo.  9.5 miles total...still waiting for tech. (Mirage 2017)

6:30am...got out before the snow.  7 miles with Moxie then 3 solo.  (Supernova)

Spent the morning battling on the phone with the service tech company.  When servicing our TV service they cut our internet.  Said the repair would happen "first thing in the morning"  1pm they final came because I walked across the street to corral the service tech.  The guys were nice but what a cluster.

Justin's signing celebration tonight at Bill's!  Cool to celebrate his commitment to run for Westmister College next year.

4:45am...went out with Moxie expecting slick pathway but it was not bad (the roads are ice though).  Nice temp, easy run.  Achilles has been tight lately when I wake up, need to stretch and roll it.  I loosens up quickly but need to get ahead of it.  (Xodus)

3 miles after work in shorts around the neighborhood. Justin was already on the treadmill at home. (Ride Orange)

Day off.  Did not get up before plane ride in time and the travel was longer than anticipated.  Thought about running after getting to hotel but the cold wind and slick conditions vs. a beer and dinner with collegues ensured the run lost out this time.  

Maybe tomorrow depending on weather, work and travel conditions/timing.
