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 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

4:45am...almost skipped this morning due to weather forecast and conditions last night (cold, icy).  Got up a bit late and it was the best weather all week (38 degrees, light wind).  Went a bit longer with Moxie for 7 miles due to predicted snow storm later today. (Ride Orange)

Blizzard at lunch, did not feel like going out in it.

3 miles after work with Katelyn on slushy roads in the neighborhood. (Guide 8)

Got up early, it was really snowing.  Did taxes instead. After the snow slowed, shoveled the driveway (and next door neighbors).  Breakfast then a run with Justin through SRL to Broadway and back.  Good conversation again, best time to connect with him.  He is done with 2nd trimester and is now done with only senior project defense and two AP tests for rest of high school amongst three "real" classes through June. 10 miles total today.

Skipped the morning run to help take care of a sick daughter.  Slammed at work so not lunch run.  Nice day after work, 5 miles in the neighborhood solo.  I was fried, wanted to go longer but just not into it...need a beer. (Mirage)

Not looking forward to work today, just crap expected based on emails from last night.

5 miles at lunch on a nice day.  Saw my buddy Daniel out running. Needed this one to work off job stresses today...didn't work all that well. (Guide 8)

Kami left for Moab, UT with the ladies for a biking weekend.  More warmer weather!  Now, off to another stressful day at work.

6.2 miles at lunch on a nice day except for the stiff south wind. Ran in shorts and sunshine.  Good run to help relieve stress, though work issues went much better than anticipated. (Guide 8)
