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

5:30am...Slept horribly last night, woke up at 2am and never really got back to sleep.  10 miles on the TM in 1:04:30 (6:28 AP).  Calves are trashed, were really tight the entire last 10K.  (Tangent)

Volunteered at church after brunch with Katelyn (day off for teacher work day).  Then 3 miles in the sunshine and nice day listening to a Malcolm Gladwell podcast.  (Glide Boost)

Retirement dinner for one of the pastor's at church tonight, going to be a big crowd!

8am...slept in a little to try to catch up on my sleep.  It was 25 degrees outside so I took Moxie for a 6 mile run around the neighborhood.  As I was arriving at home, Kami and Katelyn were heading to the gym so I went along to lift weights with Katelyn.  Then ran 2 miles on the TM in 12:56 for a good finish to the the sweat for the morning. (Supernova Green)

3 miles later in the day because I was antsy. (Glide Boost)

A coworker passed away on Monday, planning on retiring this year. Sad and sobering for ensuring I am focused on the important things in life.

I slept in today.  Went to breakfast with a couple of buddies then hit the gym around lunch with Kami.  10K on the TM at 6:28AP.  Felt controlled and easy, listening to Malcolm Gladwell Podcast made the run go fast. (Supernova Green)

Errands with Kami today then friends for cards tonight.

8am...stayed up late playing games with friends (Risk, had not played that in a while).  Slept in until nearly 7am!  Went to the gym and ran 10 miles in 1:05:20 for a 6:32AP, felt really easy.  Found that I really like listening to podcasts on the TM better than music, times goes by way faster!  Listened to Malcolm Gladwell debate (friendly) Adam Grant and "Thinking Biblically". (Guide White)

3 miles with Moxie in a light snow, she has been getting antsy since I have not taken her out regularly in the mornings. (Glide Boost)

Katelyn has a dance today and going to my coworkers funeral, sad.  Making my focus on retiring as soon as I am able more meaningful so I can get on with my next phase of life using my 10 hours a day in a different intentional manner.  I will still do my curent job to the best of my ability to have impact/significance and glorify God, but looking forward to doing different things in the next phase.  Target location is looking very feasible right now based on planning and calcs pending evening moderate returns of 401(k) for the next 6 years.  That along with pension, savings and SS should make it dobale.

3.25 miles with Moxie on a cool sunny morning.  Needed to get her out, get some VitD and work on anxiety. (Supernova Green)

4 miles in about 4 inches of fresh snow.  Tired of winter. (Xodus)  My lower back was really sore (sharp pain) this morning.  Took a nap after church.

4 miles cross country skiing.  The storm stopped and it turned beautiful outside, warm and sunny.  Pretty good skiing at the city park.  Nice to not have to drive 1+ hours to get to some trails.  Skied with our friends the Holliday's for most of the time, nice to have the company and get to know them better.

3 inches of new snow (at least it is a lighter snow). A quick run and snow shoveling. Ugh, ready for winter to be over, tired of cold and snow.

3 miles of XC skiiing after work and before worship service.  Good snow for skiing.

Tried to go XC skiing but my wife's binding iced up and we could not get it cleared. It was snowing and getting cold, so just called it quits. Man, I am tired of winter.
