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

5 miles in Freeman Park on the XC course with a warmup and cool down. Chilly and windy. (Tangent)

3 miles with Katelyn in a light rain, trying to keep up with her!  (Supernova Green)

3 miles after dropping off katelyn. (Glide Boost)

A friend asked me to run on a Master's team for USATF Club XC championships in Spokane, interested but my mind and body (and wife!) say no.  My hips have been aching the last two weeks with the increase in mileage lately and running a bit harder to help Katelyn train for NXR.  With that, my mind would still want to compete hard but not sure my body is up for that.  Plus it is in Spokane in December and with all the other stuff happening (travel, work, holiday stuff) and the long drive this time of year, not sure I am up for it.

Sore hip flexors, took the morning off.

Skipped an early run to get some recovery time for my hip flexors (most sore in the morning). 

6 easy miles at lunch on a cool day. Retiring the Ride's. (Ride Orange)

2 fast miles with Katelyn after work.  Short as she had a class event to get to. (Supernova Green)

Horrified (again) by the violence in California and the hate demonstrated in Washington, DC.  My son is dealing with issues at his dorm with a student who has broken the weapons code and created a hostile environment for students.  In light of all this hatred, I am concerned for his and others safety and unsure what steps the school is taking.

7 miles easy on a chilly but sunny day.  Both legs were tweaked (left knee, right ankle) so this was a bit slow. (Supernova Green)

5:15am...7 miles in the Tuscany neighborhood before heading out to Eagle Island for the NXR race.  Katelyn runs fairly early.  (Supernova Green)

4 miles helping katelyn warmup and cooldown and running around the park watching her race (and following my buddy Erik during the community race).   (Guide Boost)

So proud of Katelyn for running through this race and competing hard and setting a course PR (even with a trip!).  Lunch with my brother then drove home to IF.   A good weekend so far.

Proud of, worried for, frustrated with my kids and some stuff going down in their lives.  Hard to talk to them as I am "Dad" and have them respond rationally.

Thank to you all our veteran's who have served for our national protection.
