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

I got up to go run at 4:30 and was feeling like junk.  Went back to sleep and slept hard (dreaming and all).  Still not feeling very good but have big stuff at work to get done today.

4:30am...6  easy miles with Moxie along Sunnyside on a nice morning for a run.  Glutes and hammys on both sides are sore and stiff.  Glad I am not doing Pocatello right now.  (Ride 3 2015)

Slow and easy 7 miles on the greenbelt in 53:00.  Hammy and glutes better but still tight.  (Mirage Red)

3 miles with Kami in the late evening.

Still looking to see if my schedule (and family) will allow me to run St. George (or alternatively City of Trees) next month.  Everything at work and with kids seems to be coverging on the first 2 weeks of October.

6:15am...dropped off Katelyn at XC practice then took Moxie out for 6 miles.  I dropped her off then did 4 more solo, pushing the last 2 at slow MP.  10 miles total in 1:16.  Nearly got hit by a car while I was in a crosswalk in a bright orange shirt, and the driver got mad at me!  (Launch 2)

1 mile running around at Kelly Park to watch the kids in their races.  They did really good! (Boost)  Cold morning to start (Katelyn's race, hail just before her race) then it was a lot nicer for Justin's Varsity boy's race.

Slept in and took Moxie out for an easy run along Sunnyside on a nice morning for 7 miles.

Our family went to Freeman Park for a workout.  1 mile easy, then some striders in the grass and running the "W" on the Tiger Grizz course mostly easy.  Saw some other runners there too getting ready for Friday's race.  3.5 miles total running.  (Launch 2)

4 miles on a nice afternoon before dinner.  Slow and easy, a bit stiff. (Fastwitch 6)

Stiff and tired this morning, so I skipped the run and focused on stretching and foam rolling.  Felt much better afterwards. Try to run later today.

4.25 miles on the desert in 29 minutes.  Nice day, cool and sunny.  Ear pressure during the run...either the wind and high pressure or starting to get a cold. (Mirage Red)

I ran the Thirteenpointone HM today, still one of the toughest races around.  Smaller crowd but great weather.  Came down to a race between Pat B. and I again.  

2 mile warmup, feeling ok (hammy talking) but gut doing ok (I did not want a repeat of last year).  

At the gun, it was Pat and I.  I went out easy and stayed within about 2-3 seconds of Pat for the first 3 flat miles. Then the uphill...1200 feet in 2.5 miles.  I walked a couple of times just to save energy and wear on my legs (nearly as fast as trying to run).  Pat beat me to the top by about 30 seconds (KOM!) at 5.5 miles, but I quickly started to reel him in on the downhill and by mile 8.5 I caught and passed him.  He picked it back up on the rollers and then at mile 10 my hammystring tendonitis kicked in and my left leg kinda went numb and I slowed just enough for him to catch and pass me (it was a race between two old crippled guys and whose injury would surface first, my hammy or his calf...I lost!).  I stayed within about 10-20 seconds for the next few miles then tried to push and closed the gap a bit but Pat is strong and held on for the win by 10 seconds.  (Fastwitch 6)

Nice smaller race with a VERY tough hill...still think I should have stayed in bed instead!  

Overall by Age graded results for this race.  Pat B at 80%, me at 78% then Lynette at 75%.  Jeremy, Tim and Ron all ran well too.  

Now for a full day at church while Kami and friends go to Jackson to cheer on friends at the finish for LOTOJA.

I slept in and went out for a run after a morning full of church stuff (coffee with high school kids, breakfast with the Pastor, Admin stuff at church).  Nice morning...sunny and great temps.  4 miles with Moxie along Sunnyside then dropped her off and said Hi to Kami before back out for 6 more into SRL and back.  10 miles in 1:12, about half under 7:00 pace, half over.  Head cold still here, but not nearly as bad today.

Strange run at lunch...nearly did not make it as my sinuses were really plugged...first half mile nearly turned back because they hurt when I ran.  But as the run progressed they started feeling better...by mile 4 they felt really good!  Much better after the run than before...ah the theapy of a run in nice weather is real!  10K untimed.  (Mirage Red)
