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

Visited Arlington National Cemetary. Got to see the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and stayed to see the full Honor Guard get in place and watched the President of Romania place a wreath at the tomb.  Very cool.

More time at the National Mall and Museums. (Supernova)

I was a driver/coach for the kids' To Bone and Back team (both kids ran on different teams).  Teams ran strong on a hard course.  Ran portions of each leg with kids to help keep them motivated when it was hurting.  18 miles total today.  Nice weather and fun times with kids.

Katelyn's birthday party too!  (Supernova)
