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

Ran to the park to warm up for the 5k this morning.  I paced Katelyn during the run, then finished off more miles afterwards before the parade (Justin was in it for Student body) watching at a friends house with lots of other friends.  Now BBQ and family time before fireworks tonight.

4:45am...6 easy miles with Moxie. Tired after staying up late to walk to the firework show and back with friends.  A newer regular runner out this morning wanted to "race" me this morning...too old and early for that. (Mirage 2017)

Had my health screening today which required a 12 hour fast.  Between the hunger, lack of sleep heat outside and blood draw this would be a fun run at lunch.  5 miles with the middle 3 miles at around 7:05 pace. Overall a better run but feeling light headed the last mile.  (Guide 7)

3 miles on a nice evening after dinner with Kami. (Mirage 2017)

Moxie doing better.  7 miles, up to Baker Lake and little over half way to Norton Lake before we bonked due to heat and lack of fuel.  Relaxation time in the afternoon.

Officially feeling old today...49, top of my age class.  No run as this was the day to go pick up kids and then hook up and drive home.  Long day of driving on my birthday but we made it home with no issues!

Ran the Run to Remember charity race this morning.  2.6 miles in 15:44.  6th overall behind some recent high school graduates.  Didn't push really hard hoping some of the other boys (including Justin) would stay with me.  Ran home after helping tear down.  Now to get things cleaned up after camp, go to a graduation party and help staff the race table at the baseball game tonight. Full day!

Tired and sore (achilles, hips) so I skipped the run this morning.

Slammed at work, no lunch run.  Maybe a run tonight (to work off stress)?  3.25 miles with Katelyn after dinner helping her with a tempo run. (Ride Orange)
