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

Bike ride with the family in the afternoon.

Driving home from dinner in our 2010 Camaro, we pulled up to stop light new to a new silver 2016 Camaro that is in our neighborhood (and we know who the driver is).  Nice looking car!  Light turns green and after we cross the road and the railroad tracks the other car starts to gun it, Kami tells me to punch it.  They had a lead from the light and hitting the gas accelerator first (I didi not know we were racing), so I accelerate up to them, hold steady then punch it and pull away.  I am pretty sure we got a little above the limit.   Nice to see my car has true horses (gotta love the SS package!).

4:45am...8 miles with Moxie on a warmish and windy morning.  Saw Alana and Curt and ran with them for about 6 miles. Nice morning (especially since I almost didn't go out). (Ride 5)

6.3 miles on one of the windiest days I have ever run.  Headwind going out...would stop me dead in my tracks and blow me off the pathway.  Coming back it would almost pick me up a few times.  Sunny but oh what a wind!

I skipped the early run to get some extra sleep (it was cold outside too!).  Will run at lunch and after work today.

9 miles in 1:00:55 (6:46 AP) on a beautiful day at lunch.  Ran comfortably hard...7:01, 6:43, 6:32, 6:34, 6:52, 6:44, 6:50, 6:36, 6:52.  I felt pretty strong and it was controlled effort. (Altra Impulse)

It was pouring rain when I woke up so I skipped the run before church.  In the early afternoon I went out for a solo stress relieving run.  Started off warm and sunny so I ran over half the run shirtless.  Then on the way back from SRL, the clouds rolled in, wind picked up and the rain poured down.  Flashback to TCM 2008 I was so wet!  Surprised my Ipod did not short out!  6 miles in 41 minutes (6:50 avg).  

Helped a bit with the stress...need to focus on the message from the book of Job this morning.  (Mirage Gray)

Bike ride in the evening with my family.

I woke up sore and tired.  Skipped the early run and stretched/foam rolled instead  and will try to go a bit longer at lunch or after work.

10 mostly easy recovery paced miles in 1:15 on a beautiful day.  Ran the last mile with Dan and Tim easy.  Hip and glute still a bit sore. (Impulse)

Raining pretty good outside this morning, so I rolled, stretched and rehabed a bit.  Longer run at lunch and/or after work.

9 miles in 1:05.  Started off cool and I had on sleeves and gloves. By the end the sun came out, warmed up and I was running shirtless.  Now a huge storm is about to blow in.  Idaho weather...(Altra Impulse)
