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

6am...5 easy miles with Moxie on a nice morning.  Easy to get the legs loose before the race later this morning. (Mirage)

Ran the Cady Tucker 5 mile race.  Starts in Freeman Park then loops the river and back.  From the start it was Justin and I (and a 5k kid).  Solo from 1.6M on.  Cruised in hoping Justin would catch me.  1st overall, Justin 2nd.  Katelyn was 3rd OA in 5K and 1st in her age class (12-29).  Overall we won ~$200 in prize money/gift cards...good day of running for the Shadley's.  Pat puts on a great event!

No morning run, woke up to pouring rain outside.

8 miles after all day meetings and getting to the hotel.  1 hour of running in hot humid weather and air so thick it felt like I had to chew it first...miserable run but got it done so I could have some beers with my coworkers. A really good day overall.  Heading home tomorrow! (Mirage Gray)

Hip sore this morning, skipped runnning and stretched and rolled.  Extra devotions with the extra time too.  Long run at lunch.

8 miles at lunch...nice temps but the air was horrible with the wildfire just outside of town (over 43,000 acres burned so far!).  Left leg started off sore.  Ran the last couple with DanS. (Fastwitch)

The fire has burned lots of area just east of Idaho Falls, including the area that DanS and I ran on July 22 (Henry's canyon, in fact this is where it started...man caused).

We took Kami to a doc we know to check out her back/leg issue...she has a tear in a disc, causing nerve pain down here leg.  Doc thinks therapy and some rest should fix it...good news. 

I had talked about going to see her for my hammy isssue, she convinced me to come in and chat about PRP (Platlet rich plasma) therapy.  I will see what she has to say.

Easy MilesMarathon Pace MilesThreshold MilesVO2 Max MilesTotal Distance
1.0013.100.000.0014.10

Drove up to Ashton, ID starting at 5am to run the Mesa Falls Half.  Hung out with Chris, Fran and Roger at the school and on the bus before the start.  At the start on the front line was Ryan and Sara Hall, BJ Christensen, me and a few others. My goals for this race: have fun and not have my hammy blow up on me.  I took the first half really conservative down the hill and to the campground and back up to the top. Ran with Brandon (great kid, nice to have the company).  We hit the halfway point at around 43+ minutes and my hammy was doing good.  I could feel it but it was not limiting me.  On the rollers I started to pick it up and ran solidly in the 6:00-6:15 pace the rest of the way. I separated from Brandon around mile 10 and kept pushing to finish in just over 1:24 for a negative split on the course.  Slower but I will take it on this tough course, no leg issues and had a fun time.  I finished behind Sara and Ryan Hall, BJ, Erika (OT steeplechase participant) and one other guy...not bad for a gimpy old guy.  Splits: 5:55, 6:18, 6:21, 6:24, 6:43, 7:06, 6:43, 6:12, 6:00, 6:07, 6:22, 6:23, 6;11, 1:20 (0.21M).  (Tangent)

Congrats to Gray and Lynette on the win in the full marathon!

Slept in and went for a mountain bike ride with Kami after church.  Good way to shake out my legs. 

I was going to get in a short run with the kids this afternoon but getting a new phone for Kami took all that time up.  Between getting the contract and setting it up...whew!
