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 24 years with two children (18 and 15).

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 miles at lunch. Cooler and windy (30mph sustained winds) which made it interesting but not as bad as I thought.  Heading towards 60mph gusts later today. (Ride Orange)

No morning run, pouring rain outside. No lunch run instead coffee with a friend to catch up.  Plan on running after work with Justin and Erik T.

5 miles with Justin, then 6 miles with Erik after work.  Good runs in good weather.  (Mirage)

I am now the President of the Board of Diector's for the Cady Tucker Run in the Spirit charity run (raises $ for AED's for local schools).

Severe storm blew through yesterday evening and poured down huge hailstones, pretty much destroyed the siding on the front of our house!  Katelyn was home alone and was really scared, especially when funnel cloud warnings were issued as well.  Lots of insurance claims will be submitted tomorrow.

5 miles in mid afternoon and between rain storms. Windy but kinda warmish. (Mirage)

2 miles with Katelyn then 4 miles solo after work on a nice afternoon in the neighborhood. (Altra Impulse)

Neighbor's day...had a meeting in our driveway talking about the storm damage with about 5 of our neighbors, then bumped into 4 more during my run and stopped to chat.  Reinforced that we actually do live in a nice place with nice people.

Pouring rain this morning, plus a tight achilles tendon made me skip this morning.  Busy schedule and crappy weather (cool, wind) led to skipping a lunch run.  Probably an uplanned day off.

Ready for some warmer weather...going to find it for the next 5 days.

4:45am...7 miles with Moxie along Sunnyside on a cool and calmer morning.  Most of the snow that hit last night is gone.  (Guide 8)

Heading to warmer weather for a few days! Long drive to St. George but nice to see sun and have some warmth! Dinner at George's Corner then a bit of walking to shake out our legs.

7:30am...7 miles from the condo (thanks Kim and Tom!) down to the Santa Clara River trail.  To the golf course and back and a bit of wandering.  Heading out for a bike ride and into Snow Canyon today. (Ride Orange)

Great day in Snow Canyon.  Lots of hiking and biking and great time with Kami.  Back to the condo for pool time and some cerveza!  Great vacation day with my wife of (nearly) 25 years!

Wide awake early.  Made coffee and read "The Righteous Mind" for about and hour then went out for a run at 5:45.  12 miles on the Santa Clara River Trail to the Virgin River Trail and back.  Nice morning for a run.  (Ride Orange)

Church, bike ride, pool time and sun/warmth on the agenda for today.

Kami and I rode 20 miles on the trails in St. George and Bloomington Hills today, really fun time!

7am..6 miles from the condo in just over 7:00 AP.  Good run after on tired legs from yesterday's exercise.  Now watching the Boston Marathon before a bike ride later. (Supernova)

Wow, congrats Desi and the American women!  Amazing day for American women and men with many top finishers.  They (and all the finishers) show lots of mental and physical toughness and proved that racing is from the heart as much as from the mind.  Lots of DNFs in the top ranks when it became clear they could not "win"...conflicted with about a DNF when it is for anything but injury. 

23 mile bike ride with Kami to Sun River (looked at model homes, come to find out I am old enough in a few months to buy a house in a retirement community...hmmm.)  Warm and it got windy on our way back.  Great ride!

Happy 25th Anniversary to my wonderful wife, Kami!  Thanks for the great adventure so far, looking forward to a lot more with you!

7:45am...8 miles from the condo on the Santa Clara/Virgin River Trails.  Then back out for a bike ride to Sun River and on the Mayor's loop from Cottonwood Cove park. (Supernova)

Pool time in the warm sun and a nice dinner tonight before heading home tomorrow.  I could get used to this "retired" lifestyle...sooner than later.
