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

6am...too cold outside, went to the gym with Kami.  15K in 57:25 (6:09 AP).  Felt good, felt hard.  (Altra Impulse)

2.5 miles in the afternoon to enjoy the weather after doing yardwork. Just needed to get out. Old shoes.

Proud of my kids for all their hard work and focus in school.  Justin so far has got into Westminster, Corban, Notre Dame College, University of Idaho, Boise State, Crown and waiting on Gonzaga.

Forgot to set an alarm, had to get to work early. Try to run after work and XC meet (also senior night recognition...bummer for Justin missing this season due to his injury).  No run, late and tired.
