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.

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

Watched "Free Solo" last night. Wow, what singular focus on a goal/obsession.  Not sure I could/would do that approach to life but an intereting story.  Runner's culture is interesting, but climbing culture is a whole other territory.

Slept in (plus it was raining outside this morning).  6.25 miles a nice day at lunch, warm but a bit windy.  Needed the run for stress relief but it did not help as I came within 2 feet of getting hit in a crosswalk but a yahoo in a 3/4 ton truck!  Pissed me off for the rest of the run.  (Guide White)

Drove to SLC and dropped Justin off at school.  Got to the hotel and come to find out the concert that we were going to see was canceled as the performers could not get to SLC due to road conditions from Colorado.  So, instead spent some time with the Murphy's and had a good date night together.

Went to go see "Turn It Up", directed and produced by a local guy about a 1985 rock band in Idaho Falls.  Thought it would be fun to see a movie with our rock music and about my hometown...was I wrong.  It was horrible and filled with drug use and profanity and had no plot.  Too bad this is the best memory this guy has of his past in the 80's.  He seemed really proud of it and the other band members represented on the screen were in the auidence, it made them look like total buffoons, I would have been pretty pissed it is was me.
