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.

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 from competitive racing.

Married for 26 years with two children (20 and 17).

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

6:15am...cold outside!  6 miles with Moxie.  Wanted to go more but just chilled to the bone, so maybe more later. (Guide Yellow)

4 miles later.  (Supernova Green)

Moxie with this run hit 9,000 lifetime running miles with me in right at 9 years of doing this together.  By far my most consistent running buddy!  She is about to turn 10 years old and still gets excited everytime I put on running gear.

Drove to Pocatello to watch the state XC meet.  IFHS swept both the boy and girls 4A titles.

6 miles around Sugarhouse Park and the Sugarhouse neighborhood.  (Guide Yellow)

Met with the college, got a resolution (hope to finalize this weekend), not exactly what the boys wanted but it should relieve the issues and pressure.
