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

It is my son's 18th birthday today!  I could not be a more proud dad of the young man that he is and the what the future has in store for him.   Happy birthday, Justin!

On a side note...makes me feel really old.

Eclipse day...in the path of totality here in IF.  Hype was we were going to get 500,000+ visitors in town so everything shut down....not happening.  Got a day off for due to the hype though (well, have to work Friday instead).  2 miles after the eclipse around the greenbelt before grabbing a beer.

Drove to Pocatello with Justin to drop him off at Poky High to take the SAT.  I ran from the HS to the Just Cuz HM course and ran up the second half (up Mink Creek) then came back.  Took a pit stop, then finished off some more in old town for 20 miles total.  (Guide 7)
