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

6:30am...6 miles with Moxie, 2 miles at MP as another runner (Matt D) attempted to catch me so I picked up the pace, good to have a push for the first time in a while.  Once I got going, dropped him hard. (Xodus)

4 miles with Katelyn, nice to run with her for the first time in a while. (Guide Yellow)

Snow day today...nearly for the entire town/region. Schools closed all over, INL closed down, highways closed, even closed the college in SLC where Justin attends!  

5 miles in the snow and wind, not as bad as I thought it would be. (Xodus)

5am...6 miles with Moxie.  Roads were snowy and rutted, felt like running in sand.  Freezing fog, so I could not see by the end as my glasses had iced over. (Xodus)

4 miles at lunch, short on time. (Glide Black)

6am...6 miles with Moxie in the neighborhood.  Roads were either rutted and slushy or icy (where the plows had come through) which made for a slow pace. (Guide Yellow)

4 miles cross country skiing with Kami in the early afternoon.
