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

Met Marlin and Gray early and we drove to Pocatello for a trail run on City Creek trail.  That was fun and challenging and lots of elevation.  Tried the Hoka Stinson Trail...nope!  I do not feel stable in these either going up or down the trail.  10 miles in 1:33 as a training run for RONR.  Revising our estimate for the race after this one.  I had one light turn of my left ankle but it is feeling ok.  Man, I am tired after these last two days!   Great run boys!

Lots of work around the house rearranging to move Justin's room.  I am very sore and tired...my hips and ankle hurt.

No run this morning. My ankle is feeling ok but my hips are so sore.  Maybe a run at lunch if time allows otherwise after work.

3.3 miles around Freeman Park at the lunch break during my training today.  Nice day out...hips are really sore from the weekend.  (Mirage Red)

Marlin and I drove to Pocatello to run the City Creek trail again this weekend.  10 miles in 1:31...much more fun and easier than last week mostly due to the right shoes!  Thanks Marlin for a nice run this morning!  (Xodus)

All day today spent moving my High school son down to the basement and all the reorganzing and cleaning that comes with it...tired and hungry!

I was asked last week to pace the 3:30 group at Teton Dam Marathon this weekend and thought it would be an ok training run for RONR...plus getting paid.  Today I had to call the people asking me to do it for some logistics and I was told that I was now pacing the 4:00 group...because some guy from Utah didn't want to run that slow.  Neither do I...as a local resident and 5 time podium finisher (1st, 2nd, 2nd marathon, 1st twice in HM) I would have thought I would have been given some consideration and treated with manners.  Now, I am up for a good training run this weekend on my terms and spending the time with my family!   Not doing TDM again.

6am...Justin and I went to Freeman Park and ran the Tiger/Grizz XC course twice then 10 100m strides at the end.  He learned how tough the course is and the second time he ran in his spikes to get used to them.  Good way to start the summer so we can see the improvement.  (Fastwitch Red)

RONR...here we come...nope!  My truck has a broken fuel pump and would not start today.  Can't get it fixed til next week and I don't want to test it to tow the trailer 200+ miles each way.  So, not going to RONR as this was going to be a family camping weekend too.  No camping, I don't want to go up without my family.

I slept in and went out for a run at 6:15am with Moxie along Sunnyside. Easy to start then a decent pace for a few miles before running into Andrea and doing about 6 miles with her. 11.15 miles total before stopping by home and grabbing the family to run at Community Park. 3 miles with Katelyn and Kami then Justin and I went out to finish off 8 miles for him and I went solo to finish 8.85 for 20 miles of running for the morning. Fastwitch is my next marathon shoe.(Fastwitch Red).

In the early afternoon Kami and I went out for a solid 30 mile bike ride at 18MPH average through the roads towards Shelley. Great time with her but tough battling the headwind that developed.

Finished off the day with the family watching "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" tonight...good movie!

Missed my morning run (perfect morning too!) due to oversleeping and a really locked up back.  Try to get a lunch run and maybe after work while my daughter is swimming.  Her birthday today, she turns 12 and I am a very proud father.  Happy Birthday, Katelyn!

5 miles on the desert in 33:45 (6:45 AP) on a nice day (cooler, cloudy, light breeze).  Legs were loaded and tired and my knee was still a bit twingy from soccer with the kids the last two days.  Maybe only run today.  (Mirage Red)

No run this morning, feeling crappy and back still hurting.  Taking day off from work (or most of it) to get it unlocked.

I went to work after all to get some things done and because my back was feeling better.  After work, I went ot the track to do a workout while waiting to pick up Katelyn from swimming.  0.5M warmup then ladder work...0.25, 0.5, 0.75, 1,0, 0.75, 0.5, 0.25 miles with 1 lap in between.  Paces for segments: 5:13, 5:22, 5:42, 5:45, 5:40, 5:35, 4:58.  Not what I wanted but I was still a bit tight and tired.  7 miles total in 43:20.  (Mirage Red)

5:45am...3 miles with Moxie for a easy warmup before our relay. Also, she needed to get out.

On the To Bone and Back 40 mile relay. Justin and I ran on the Sock and Sole team.  Justin ran leg 1, I ran leg 4.  Justin and I ran a 1 mile warmup.  Leg 4 has tough uphill and it was into a 30MPH headwind which sucked.  5 miles in a slow 32:30.  Moved us up from 4th to 3rd during our leg (which we lost back on the next leg).  I ran 2 miles with Beau on leg 6 and 2 miles with John on leg 7 on the downhill.   Our team finished the 40 miles in 4:52.  Thanks to Ron and Gray for asking us to be on the team, we had fun and it was a confidence booster for Justin.  Overall 13 miles for the day.  (Mirage Red)

2 more miles after dinner with Katelyn easy around the neighborhood.  (Bikila)

2 miles with Katelyn after dinner then a great game of soccer in the backyard..kids vs. parents ended in a tie!  (Bikila)
