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

Happy New Year to the FRB!

Slept in after staying up with family and friends to ring in the new year...good food, good company, good fun (and a good workout playing Just Dance 3 on the Wii!).  Went out at 9am with Moxie for a nice and easy 10K in 46 minutes.   Afterwards, Kami and I went to the gym to lift weights.

1 more mile outside after lifting weights with Kami when she tanned...in shorts!  

I learned yesterday of the death of one of the best runners I have known, Tom Borschel, from Lou Gehrig's disease.  Tom was a great guy and a fantastic runner from Idaho Falls...he was the World Master's Mountain Running Champion in 2004 for the 45-49 age group!  Tom, you will be missed.

11 miles at the gym in 1:05:30.  1 mile warmup, 6.5 miles at MP, 2 miles at 5:33 pace with a couple of quarters at 4:30 pace thrown in.  1 mile cooldown at MP to finish off the run.  Day off then back to work tomorrow. (Mirage)

5 miles outside in the early afternoon with Moxie, meeting Trevor and Coach Smith at Community Park.  A great January run outside in perfect weather (45 degrees, sunny, calm) and in shorts...wow!  (TSD5)

Kami and I did the Yoga video we got for Christmas (thanks, Alana) to help improve flexibility...still need a lot of work.  My back was a bit stiff so some of the moves were not only hard (even if I was flexible) but impossible.

I woke up with a very stiff back today, but managed to get out of bed and go to the gym to see if it would loosen up (plus I could stop at any time).  I managed 7 miles (2 easy, 5 at very easy MP).  Back was still sore afterwards...when I got home I laid down and couldn't get back up.  Took some ibuprofen and treated with heat and is a bit better...finally made it to work after 3 hours in bed!

Decided to hit the gym just in case my back acted up this morning...feeling much better than yesterday!  1 mile warmup, 6.5 miles MP progession (6:22 - 5:42).  0.5M at 4:26 pace.  8 miles in 48:35.   A good run, only run for today.

4:30am...8.1 miles in 1:01 on a nice morning for a run.  Met up with Curt and ran through SRL and back down Sunnyside for a bit (6.5 miles with Curt).  A good easy morning run with a great friend and running partner, thanks Curt.  (TSD5)

5.1 miles in 34:15 (6:42 average, last mile at slow MP) on a nice day at lunch...sunny, calm and decent temp (33 degrees) so I ran in shorts, long sleeves, vest, earband and gloves.  A good easy run at a decent clip to get in some nice outside running in this awesome weather.  (Ride)

Gray and I just registered for and set up travel for the Surf City Marathon on February 5 in Huntington Beach, CA...should be a fun trip (inexpensive too from Idaho Falls!).

4:15am...8.6 miles with Moxie on a warmer (30 degrees) but breezy morning.  Pathways a mix of clear and icy patches in the shaded spots.  No watch, just out for a run.  (Ride)

6 miles in 43:20 around the river at lunch.  Not bad weather, just not nearly as good as it has been.  Gettin' in the miles.  (TSD5)

6:00am...I took Moxie out for a couple of miles before meeting the group for a long run.  Craig, Curt, Gray, Lynette and Trevor were all at the corner at 6:30.  Did an initial 6 mile loop through SRL running mostly easy with Lynette and Curt, then a bit faster with Gray. We dropped off Trevor and headed back out. Lynette and Curt stayed with us and ran for a few more miles, then Gray, Craig and I finished off about 16.5 miles.  Gray really started pushing the pace the last 5 miles (he was feeling good!) and we were running sub 7:00 pace and coming back to the corner I was in the 6:20 range...at the end of an 19 miler, not too bad.  Eased home for a 19.25 mile run in 2:20 (about a 7:17 average pace, negative split big time). 

I was really feeling it by the end of the run, longest run in a while, good training run for Surf City.

Now for a day taking down all the Christmas decorations and going to Tom's life celebration.
