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 miles after work on a wonderful afternoon...Kami and a girl's night out and Katelyn at practice.  Good run and nice beer before dinner...takes the edge off the blah day. (Altra Impulse)

Dropped off Katelyn early at the school to catch the bus to Lewiston.  Out for 5 miles with Moxie then 5 miles solo...busy time in the neighborhood with all cars taking kids to school. (Guide White)

Going to Logan today to watch Justin race (his first collegiate race, been injured and sick til now) at the USU meet.  First time we have seen him in 6 weeks!  Justin did not run to save a season of eligibility (instead of using it for one race).  Bummer but probably a good decision.

Heading to Jackson and the Tetons today with the boys.

3 miles with Katelyn after getting back from Jackson and before a House Legistature race debate in which our friend is running.  (Ride Orange)

Getting depresssed with the state of our world/country right now and all the hate...bombs, murder, environmental impacts, lack of civility in even talking to each other from the President on down to this local debate.  Started off with just nastiness and lack of willingness to even try to get along.  Hard to even want to get up and face the day sometimes, very worried for the world we are leaving our kids
