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

6:15am...7 miles with Moxie and about half with Andrea, good to run with her again...she is getting ready for the Spartan Ultra-beast race on Oahu, HI.

Stopped by home to drop off the dog, fuel and pit stop and grab one or both kids.  That did not work well, bummed.  I ran 10 miles solo and ended up in the second half on the running course for the Snake River Tri and used the leaders as rabbits to up my pace.  

17 miles today, first time in a while. (Supernova Green)

2 mile walk with Kami and Justin right about dusk.

Justin's last day at home before we take him to Westminster for college.  Hard time processing it, Kami is having even a harder time.

Ate at the Park Cafe (great food and price) then visited Westminster to check in with financial aid and see Justin before heading home.

4:00am..could not sleep so up early.  6 miles with Moxie on a cool morning. (Supernova green)

5 miles at lunch on a nice day.  Lower back and right knee a bit twingy. (Tangent)

Took Katelyn to our friend who is a PT to check on her calf/soleus issues.  Good news very fixable...doing the stuff I have told her to do based on my experience and advice from others.  Maybe she will listen if it comes from someone else.

Kids 18 hour relay tonight for XC fundraiser. Ugh. Don't want to go to the repetitive meeting and see the coaches or crappy kids. Not looking forward to this year of HS XC.

Very busy day at work so no lunch run.  More projects piling on (good stuff) and staff gone this week so covering for them.  More retirements emminent, hard to see how we are going to cover all the work. 

I was going to run after work but Kami had tickets to the Chukars baseball game.  Watched the game sitting next two two old bosses right behind home plate.  Fun time.  Nice evening besides the smoke that rolled in heavy right near the end of the game...almost hard to see the ball.

Sad and a bit mad...Justin's calf is bothering him and he is thinking that he may not want to do XC, quitting before it even starts because it is hard.  Struggling to help him stay motivated through injury (which his calf has bothered him a bit nearly every season), his coaches and trainers are helping him get healed up and he likes the team...but still says 'he is not feeling it'.  Not a reason to throw in the towel.

6:15am..8 miles with Moxie in the neighborhood.  Then some time getting things organized with our home repairs (helped install the new suntube), checking in with insurance, etc.  Then we drove to Rexburg to watch the first XC race of the season, Katelyn did great!  (Guide White)

A good day, got to talk to Justin too.  He is loving college and in better spirits about the XC team.

Just could not get up this morning (plus it was storm a bit) so I went out for a fast 5 miles (35 minutes) at lunch on a cool and windy day. (Tangent)

Still worried about Justin and his running, he is getting frustrated with the leg issues (hip is tender).  Coaches are there for him long term, he just needs to see this issue may take a few weeks to resolve.

4 miles after work in a light rain before the heavy stuff started. (Guide White)
