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

4:15am...not much sleep last night.  Out for a decent 5 miler with Moxie early. (Mirage)

6 slow miles at lunch.  Cooler but humid.  At ~3.5 miles I got light headed and dizzy. Walked then finished the run. Fueled and hydrated, must be lack of sleep last night. (Fastwitch)

6:15am...chilly and windy morning.  Met Trevor Clarke for a run and had a good time catching up and chatting with this good young guy.  Ran about 6 miles with him and finished off 10 miles in 1:17.  Cold, hands were icecubes! (Ride 5)

3 miles in the afternoon on a beautiful day. Then I took the kids to the park before XC practice to do some form drillls.  When they were practicing, I ran around the park for a total of 7 miles. (Launch 2)

It was 34 degrees outside this morning and I was stiff.  Skipped early run and stretched and rolled.  Will go out after work today.

6 miles around the neighborhood in the late afternoon.  Saw a doc today about my hammy, nothing new but some ideas.  Xray then decide if I want to pursue more options...not sure they sound much better than dealing with my issue, PT, and realizing I am just older. (Altra Impulse)

Skipping the morning run. Heading to Island Park for a men's retreat with some friends.  May run up there or tonight after I get home.

6 miles with a big group at the Men's retreat.  Fast finish with Issac.  5 more miles after lunch during the afternoon free time.  Nice to run in such a beautiful setting.  (Fastwitch)

Cool and windy day at lunch. Ran in Freeman Park on the XC cross country course, easy (3.15M in 22:16) just to check the course on (they made a few changes).  With wu/cd, 5.25 miles. (Fastwitch)

Way to busy at work today for a run. I went out after work for a quick 3 miles before going to see "Woodlawn" with the Men's group.  Great movie. (Altra Impulse)

6 miles on a nice day at lunch (I actaully overdressed, thought it was cooler).  Warmup mile then the XC course in the park.  Ran it a better today, 3.15M in 19:10 (6:05 AP).  Ran DanS in the last 800m of his running the course then we cooled down together.  (Fastwitch)

Celebratory beers with Dan after work.

5am...out for a long run early.  Met Andrea for a few miles then she peeled off and then met up with Rex and Craig.  Rex was running well and took off.  Craig and I just cruised along.  Way slower and more painful than I wanted this one to be...not looking good for COT marathon based on this run.  I wanted 20 miles, but could only muster 18.25 miles.  Very sore right after this crappy run (8:30 AP, no progression).  (Ride 5)

No run today.  Justin and I left early to go to Salt Lake City.  It was a nasty, wet, monsoon weather drive!  We drove down to do a visit at Westminster College.  Afterwards, we drove downtown to check into the hotel before the Saint Motel Concert at The Grand.  So, no running but several hours of walking and standing at the concert.  Great bonding time with my son.

Drove over to the Murphy's then up to Park City to run the course the kids are competing on next week.  One time through easy then one at tempo.  6.5 miles with cool down. It was cool and wet but a good time running on the course with the Murphy's.  Afterwards breakfast at Squatter's before the drive home. (Mirage)

6 miles at lunch (fatlek run) in 45 minutes.  Beautiful day for a run! (Fastwitch).

Life is about to get hectic and my promotion was announced to the office and I will start my new position next week (while still doing the old job for a while as I work to transition it effectively.)  Kinda bitter sweet as I really like my current program, but change and a promotion is pretty exciting.

Massage after work, then watched the debate. Had to get out to work out frrustration for a couple of miles around the neighborhood.  This is really then best two people that we have to choose from?  Gah! (Boost)
