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

Dinner with lots of colleagues! (Supernova Green)

Got up to run early and was just too tired, so slept for another hour or so.  Ran at lunch on a warm day, 5 miles at decent clip. (Tangent)

No second run, instead time at dinner and a movie for my wife's birthday. Good evening.

My right achilles has been sore in the mornings for the past 2 months.  Not enough to not run and it seems to stop aching after getting up and walking around for a few minutes.  But today is was a bit more sore and I noticed some inflammation.  Skipped my run and iced it instead. 

Seems to be a lot of sore achilles with runners on the FRB right now...can think of at least 3 others who actively post who have indicated this.  Can we catch this via a "FRB virus"?

3 miles easy to get out...no real pain with the achilles but taking it easy for awhile.

Skipped the morning run again to let achilles rest.  A bit sore this morning but less than yesterday.

Took one more morning off, will likely run at lunch if work allows.

5 miles on a warm day at lunch...need to get out for stress and just because.  Achilles is still pretty sore and tight, so I kept this one short. (Tangent)
