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

Pouring rain this morning so skipped the run, plus I had to get into work about 1 hour early.

Busy day, then skipped lunch run to meet siding contractor at our house and move our trailer (took it to the shop for repair as well).

3 miles in the evening after dinner to get out and stretch my legs. (Glide Boost)

Legs still a bit sore, and I have been very tired the last two weeks so I have been wrecked in the evenings and unmotivated to wake up early. Skipped the early run (cold outside and rainy) and no lunch run as I went home to check on house siding replacement work.

4 miles after work. (Glide Boost)

Home siding job nearly done.  We came to a realization that building a house would likely not work for us due to all the stress on details, this siding job has stressed Kami out!

Celebrating 26 year anniversary. I am blessed to be called her husband.
