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

Sick, no running or evening getting out of bed much.  Not a fun last day for vacation.

Feeling a bit better. Slept in, went to work and will try to run later in the day.

10K at the gym at 6:32 AP.  Felt better during the run but it was hard.  Later tonight my head felt like it was going to blow up.  Tired of being sick. (Supernova Green)

6 miles of XC skiing at the park after 3-4 inches of snow last night.  Also had a good amount of shoveling to do.  Lazy day before life starts to get back to routine (Katelyn back to school, Justin home for 5 more days, I start back at work).

Bad night sleep and windy, cold and snowy outside.  Try to run after work today. OBE so no run. Bummed.

Just could not get up to face the cold (10 degrees) or gym this morning. Went out in the sunshine at lunch for 6 miles. (Guide White)

5:30am...having a hard time getting motivated to run in the cold and dark so far in 2019.  After checking the weather and seeing it was 24 degrees, decided to squeeze in a short run before a busy day at work.  4 miles with Moxie easy. (Guide White)

Not very motivated so far in 2019, maybe due to the cold and dark but really affecting my energy for running and work (and life).  SAD is getting me again this year, first time in about 3 years I remember being this down.

4:30am...6 miles with Moxie on a warmish morning.  Very busy day (but good!) at work so this was my only run.  Men's group in the evening too (nice to start this back up). (Supernova Green)

6am...6 miles with Moxie on snow covered roads in the neighborhood. (Guide white)

Some chores (taking down Christmas stuff, plumber visit) then time with Justin before we take him back to SLC for college tomorrow.

7am...10K on the TM at the gym in 39:30 (6:21 AP).  Good run though I wished Justin would have run outside with me.  Taking him to SLC to start spring semester at college. (Tangent)

Dropping off Justin really sucked, both from the perspective of missing him, but also how it ended in a fit of stress and not a good end to the day. Had a good lunch with the Murphy's but then the stress at his dorm really was a downer.  Not liking this phase of life with our kids and my work...mid-life kinda sucks, let's get to  6 years from now so they are done with school and I can retire.

4 miles after getting back from SLC just to stretch out my legs.  Listened to about 5 Malcolm Gladwell Revisionist History Podcasts on the trip. (Glide Green)

3 degrees this morning, no run.  Church then cleaning up the house and finalizing taking down the Christmas decor (including our 15 foot tree).  Used our new vacuum from Christmas, holy crap our old vacuum was a piece of crap!  3 miles later.

It was 1 degree when I got up this morning...did not feel like driving to the gym.  Slammed at work today and no time for a run at lunch.  5 miles after dinner with Moxie just to shake out the legs and burn off energy from the day.  Snowy and icy but felt strong and faster for this run. (Xodus)

It was warmer this morning, but it was super slick outside due to a freezing rain.  This combined with a sore lower back led me to skip early run.  This month is a loss for a good training month due to weather, illness and motivation.  Need to try to find motivation as I need to burn off work stress better.

Tried to sleep in, woke up at 4am.  It was 32 degrees outside with a light dusting of snow.  The conditions besides being a bit slushy were the best I have run in for a while.  5 miles with Moxie then 5 miles solo. (Xodus)

Breakfast with soome buddies then maybe some volunteer work and chores (replace a kitchen faucet) today.

6am..got up early and had coffee and ready (Malcolm Gladwell "David and Goliath") before heading out for a run.  6 miles with Moxie warmer (32 degrees) weather on a path that was mostly dry and clear but had some very slippery icy spots. Dropped off the dog and went back out, hit a icy spot and took my first fall of the winter.  On the way back it started to snow (lightly then heavier) which started covering the ice.  Cut it short at 14 miles as it was getting too risky.
