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

Dropped kids off and school, ran few errands then ran home from one of the stops.  9 miles winding through town.  Stopped at my old elementary school to be part of veteran's day program.  Heading to Boise for Nike Cross Northwest...go Tigers XC!  (Altra Impulse)

Thanks to all our veteran's who have served our country and put their lives on the line for all of us.

6:00am...6 miles in the dark from the hotel on a nice morning.  Due to the lights from the cars, I ran into a bush and tripped on the sidewalk, so...

Mixed day at Nike Cross.  Beautiful weather, but not the best running performances (shout out to Zach for a strong run).

Tired and drained, just vegged with family at the hotel for the evening.

2 miles after our small group Marriage study on a nice afternoon.

Then, tragedy today.  A good friend and fellow athlete killed herself today, we are heartbroken for ourselves and our community, but even more for her husband and two daughters.  Please, as a person who has faced the darkness of depression, I urge you all to pay attention to others and reach out even when it feels uncomfortable or prying.  A hand may be all someone needs, or even has, to help them.  Always rest assured that God is there for you and you cannot out sin his grace or can be in a dark place where his light cannot overcome. 

God bless you Amy, we will miss you.

Happy Thanksgiving!  Got up and prepared all the fixing for dinner then went out for a run on a beautiful day at 11:30 for 5 miles. Came back and picked up the family for 3 more to finish with 8 miles.  Now to indulge a bit!  (Altra Impulse)

Sad day today as we remember our dear friend Amy at her Celebration of Life.  I am honoted to have been asked to give a Christian faith talk at the memorial.  We miss you Amy but celebrate that you are in the presence of Jesus.

My leg hurt this morning and I did not feel well, so I skipped the run in the cold wind and did some weights/rehab exercises at home.  Will try to get a run in at lunch in the snow.

5 miles at lunch, first snow run of the year.  This run was off from the start.  Felt like I was out of fuel, light headed and had to stop and walk a couple of times. Got it done...maybe should not have started. (Ride 5)
