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.

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

4:30am...7 miles on a very warm morning (40 degrees) with some wind and a bit of rain.  I saw Sarah, Curt and Alana out this morning enjoying the weather.  Started with an easy effort then started to push to get a couple of miles in the MP effort range.  Did not bring Moxie as I did not want to have to clean her off due to the wet and dirty pathway conditions...she was bummed.  About time to retire these Mirage, right ankle was feeling this run in the shoes. (Mirage)

Warm and very windy at lunch.  Nice temps (overheated in fact) but swirly gusty winds.  I wanted to go a bit harder and for the effort, I would have thought I was running fast.  7 miles in 49:20.  That is not what I was hoping for.  (Ride 3)

Just found out I was renewed by PowerBar for 2 more years.  Registered for Mountain to Fountain 15K in Fountain Hills, now to book my travel.  Also looking at doing a 15K on March 23 in Balboa Park, San Diego.  Hopefully will help with Boston prep.

Nice running into you out there this morning. I'll give you a call about Saturday and confirm plans. Have a good one.
