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.

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 from competitive racing.

Married for 26 years with two children (20 and 17).

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

Driving to Alturas Lake today to drop off Katelyn at Luther Heights Church Camp.  A beautiful drive. We have camped in the past during this week but life (e.g. work) got in the way.

Got up to run this morning but my earache that started yesterday was worse.  Took some meds which helped a bit with the ache, but now am really spacey.  Maybe this will help with my work attitude.  Likely a day off as I have a lunch appointment with a former coworker and a church outing at the ballgame tonight.

5:15am...5 miles with Moxie.  Then went down to the race which I have helped with and ran around about 3 miles as I was helping keep the runners on the course for the various events...no matter how much you put out arrows and signs people still miss turns (or even straight aways).  3 miles later in the day.

For the past 2.7 years, I have been performing in two job roles at my work.  My "old" job was finally posted today.  Bitter sweet as I like the program and people, but will be nice to focus on one job and learn more about other programs and activities.  Maybe I can finally get my mind settled and focused again as the two different and distinct jobs has been getting harder to balance effectively.  Hopefully now I can focus on being a more engaged and effective supervisor too (at least to my own expectations, boss indicates he has been happy with what I have been doing but need to do more in the long run).
