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

We ran the FireKracker 5k race as a family team and got second team overall.  For me, pretty crappy race.  Overall 7th (2nd 30 and over) ...mostly young faster guys in front of me.  Had a plan to run slower first mile (5:30ish) then stay steady..did not happen.  Pretty slow 5:50ish for the rest, caught in no man's land with no desire to push.  So is the state of my speed training right now.  Justin's calf popped again, Katelyn ran strong but her legs were hurting and Kami ran 29 minutes the day after a 76 mike bike ride!  Fun to run as a family, see good friends and enjoy the weather.

Happy Independence Day!

2 miles later in the day.  Ate horribly but had fun with friends and family.

Awesome to have the whole family racing. Good job!

It's been a while since you raced. You're coming back from some nasty niggles. Just remember that most of the time this pace is just under marathon pace. These things take time. Happy Fourth of July!

Sounds like funů17:50 is not bad at all.
