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

Very late night as Katelyn had a party at our house, last kid left at 2am.  Up at 7am, 3 miles in some deep snow.  Maybe another run or XC skiing later.

3 miles of XC skiing at Tauphaus Park with Kami in fresh snow, breaking tracks for lots of the time. 

Happy New Year.

Lots fo snow from the storm last night too deep to want to run before work maybe at lunch.  So far in January 2020, Idaho Falls has had 20" of snow, a total of 40" since October 2019.  Really starting to accummulate now, the snowbank on the side of my driveway is nearly as tall as I am.

6 miles on a cold but sunny and calm day at lunch on a freshly plowed pathway. Good to get some Vitamin D. (Guide Blue)

Was very tired and sore this morning (back, knees) so I rested instead of running even though it was a warm morning.  5 miles at lunch is partly sunny weather...back and knees still aching a bit. (Guide Blue)
