Short-Term Running Goals:

Keep on running, enjoy it for the sake of running, get some races in this year. 

Help train with my kids for XC and track, ride my bike more (Century this year?) with my wife and try to stay healthy and overcome old man niggles.

Lift weights more...lots more.

 

Long-Term Running Goals:

Keep running until this old body says no, running for fun and occasional race here and there, mostly retired from competitive racing. Now in the 45-49 AG.

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 23 years with two children (17and 14).

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

I was mentally and physically wiped out from work yesterday's meetings.  Slept in and went to the gym after dropping the kids off at school.  7 miles in 42:38 (6:05 avg).  Felt like crap afterwards...got a massage...sore all over.  Glad this is a day off could not have handled work today.

Wanted to get in a second run but was slammed at work and did not have time after work before going to seeing the Boston Marathon documentary movie.  Good to see friends and get inspired by the memories of this race.  Now thinking of running in 2019 as an IF runners group party run!

Very tired and sore this morning, slept through numerous alarms.  Skipped the run (bummer because the weather was nice and it is supposed to rain the rest of the day)...day off likely.
