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

Drove to Driggs, ID for a funeral of one of Justin's best college buddies father, a man we knew a little through mutual friends.  An inspirational memorial for a man who committed his life to God, his family and his country and to peace.  He died too young but made a significiant impact.  

3 miles after getting home. (Supernova Green)

7:30am...6 miles with Moxie.  (Altra Impulse)

Spent the run trying to process what is going on with our society.  After listening to the memorial yesterday, dealing with work and family pressures, nagging running pains (and thus lack of inspiration in my runs which used to be my release) and now reading/hearing about the 3rd and 4th mass shooting in our country in a week, I struggle at times to see how we as a society honor God or each other.   Maybe my mood recently is just midlife crisis related and realizing that my family is changing and work is less enjoyable/motivational, but looking at the bigger picture society and all the hate (and justification of that hate) is very depressing.  I hardly want to get up and don't find much joy...lately my highlight of the day is the evening beer.

Glad I got the run in early, doing yardwork in the blazing sun and heat is hard work and I would not want to run this afternoon.

6 miles on a hot day at lunch.  Ran a bit faster today to race my friend Ron to the Broadway bridge, he started a couple of minutes earlier and I took the longer way around the west side...beat him!  Then when nearly finished I saw the Blue Angels fly over the park, pretty cool!  Not sure why they are hear as I do not know of an airshow nearby.

Taking Justin back to college today, sad to see him go but excited for him in his second year. 

His apartment is way to nice for college kids!  What a view of Sugarhouse park and the mountains.  His room has an entire corner of floor to ceiling windows overlooking Parley's trail.  They have a dishwasher and in room washer and dryer.

Heading to a camp in the Sawtooths for a retreat entitled "Be Still" to find downtime in God's beautiful creation, unwind and reflect on life and God in my life.  Looking forward to the chance to just chill and focus on relationships with God, family and friends. 

Drove up to Stanley to help celebrate our friends anniversary with a few drinks and some pool.
