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 24 years with two children (18 and 15).

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

Felt like crap all day today, no energy.  Could not fall asleep when I got home so I went for a short slow run of 3 miles.  Developing a cough too...when the weather is getting nice. (Guide 7)

Weights with Justin at the gym.  Going through the routine his new coach gave him to prep for faster spring running.

4:30am...4 miles with Moxie, had to cut it short due to intestinal distress. Did rehab exercises, pushups and situps. (Supernova)

6 miles on a nice day at lunch.  I pushed the pace today because my legs (and energy) felt the best they have in a long time!  Felt like things were working well (power, turnover, muscle engagement), actually reminded me of what good race pace felt like (not that fast today, but fastest in a while)!  (Guide 8)

3 miles after school with Justin.  He ran a 56 and change for his 400m time trial...off injury recovery and no real training since August!  Looking great to start into his prep for Westminster XC in the fall.

4:15am...6 miles with Moxie on a warmish morning. (Mirage Red)

6 miles at lunch on a beautiful day (sunny, warmer) so I was overdressed.  Plus I was running at a faster clip (MP) than usual.  Had a couple of rabbits...two guys in the locker room were posturing a bit.  Took off before me, ran the short side of the park. Saw them first at about 1.25 miles and they were 0.5 miles ahead, caught them just past 2.5 miles in, and ended up in the locker room just after they finished a 4.3 mile run.  Felt good to get the legs pumping again. (Guide 8)

3 miles with Justin just chatting and goofing off the whole way, great time. (Ride Orange)

Went to see "The Greatest Showman" tonight, great movie, message and soundtrack.

4 miles with Justin after work. Moxie is doing much better (as soon as I took down her leash, she pepped up and acted normal...weird.)  Vet said no issues that he could she...she was tired and sore or faking it!  (Ride Orange)

Slept in on my day off.  3 miles solo then 5 miles with Justin, cold run.  Breakfast with my family, some errands, meeting at church then visiting with a friend who recently retired.  Was going to go out later...but didn't.  Good day off. (Guide 8)

Too tired and too cold outside (10 degrees) for an early run.

COLD outside, not running in that (13 degrees, 17 mph wind, -3 windchill).

Got a workout helping sort and reload cans and food at the Community Food Basket tonight with my daughter and wife.  Helped a group sort about 15 pallets of food for the local community distribution center.

Woke up with a stuffy head and crappy weather outside so no run.  Took a cold pill and went to work and felt better and weather improved so a slow and unmotivated 5 miles at lunch.  Think the Guide 8's are done...my achilles were hurting today. (Guide 8)
