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

Changed to Friday's off and starting this week, nice to have a day to spend with Kami and/or do errands.  New tires for the Camaro today.   

Volunteering at the race tomorrow.  Good to still be engaged in some way.

Rained heavy last night, skipped my run due to being tired and unsure of getting wet this morning.

6.5 miles at lunch on a cloudy day, perfect temps.  (Tangent)

Needed this one to work off anxiety...dealing with "do more with less" at work, letting all the "little things" at home that seem to be piling up pick at my nerves as well as the prep for Justin to leave and normal teenager stress.   Cannot seem to keep my mind focused on anything for more than 5 minutes and trying to make decisions or deal with others issues is challenging right now. Message from management today..."In light of the recent tragedies of influencers like Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade, combined with office-wide “doing more with less” work pressure, I want to remind you that there are resources readily available to help you and your family manage life’s challenges." Thanks, but how about hiring the staff we need to do our jobs?

2 miles after dinner to enjoy weather and clear my head. Stopped by a friend's house and played with their young daughters, that helped a lot!  (Supernova Boost)

Heading to SLC to take Justin to a Westminster event (register for classes, meet classmates, etc.).  My dad and father in-law are both coming too to see the campus and just hang out for a guys day.  Head back tomorrow for my daugther's 16th birthday party...busy weekend.

When Justin was at his overnight activities, we went and watched "MacBeth" at Westminster.  Fun but had to work to stay up with Shakespeare's vocabulary.
