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.

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

5:15am...6 miles out and back on Common Road and a couple of loops around the civic center/library.  Warmish morning but sloppy wet roads. (Guide Blue)

6 miles after work on a warmish, sunny and windy afternoon.  As good as yesterday went, this day of meetings went equally bad. A stress reliever run...did not work. Maybe free beer will help. (Guide Blue)

Slept in a bit and took the morning easy (cold outside anyway).  Longer run later today after last morning of meetings.

Full morning of meetings again.  After getting to the airport area hotel, I ran 6 miles on the treadmill because the wind and cold was not looking fun.  Heading home tomorrow. (Guide Blue)

Kami worked early, I had to get kids' stuff ready and get to work early, so no morning run.

I was going to go out at lunch, but a buddy said the pathways were treacherous as I went into the locker room. Skipped the run.

5:45am...raining outside so to the gym while Kami went to spinning class.  Progression run for 10K then a breather and fast again for 8 miles in 50:56 (6:22 avg).  Felt good,  Gym was crowded and thus much wamer than even just an hour earlier.  (Guide Blue)

3 miles with Katelyn and Moxie in the neighborhood before FitWall. (Guide 7)

Day off, breakfast with some guys, then errands and FitWall tonight with Kami.

5am...7 miles with Curt and Alana along Sunnyside on a nice morning.  (Guide 7)

Ran into a young man walking alone in the dark looking for the "end of Sunnyside" to walk to as part of a scout project.  He was carrying a big backpack and a sleeping bag.  He was maybe 13 with no adult supervision walking alone in the cold dark morning...seemed strange.  So we chatted for a minute with him then called the police to check on him further as this seemed really off. 

5 miles on a warmer but cloudy day at lunch.  Needed this one for a work related stress reliever and time to think about issue resolution. (Ride 5)
