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 24 years with two children (18 and 15).

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

5am...7.5 miles with Erik T. and Moxie along Sunnyside.  Great morning and even better conversation with a good friend to get the day started right!  (Ride 3)

5 easy miles on a beautiful day at lunch.  Pathway was a bit slick in some spots...legs were a bit dead today so I just took it easy and enjoyed the sunshine to battle SAD. (Mirage Red)

5am...tired and cold.  4 miles with Moxie is all I had time or energy for, mostly got out due to the dog.  (Ride 3)

10K untimed at lunch on a very nice day (sunshine, 27 degrees, calm).  I got tangled up with a dog less than a half mile in, tweaked hammy a bit, took another mile for it to feel "better".  Nice to get some sun!  (Mirage Red)

2 miles after work with Katelyn outside.  (Fastwitch Red)

6am...too cold outside for a workout so I went to the gym.  1 mile warmup then into a 5K effort run.  5k in 16:45, 1 mile recovery, 1 mile at 4:52, 2 mile recovery with a fast finish.  First workout in a while where I felt I had to puke (several times).  Calves are fried.  Now for a busy day off.  (Fastwitch Red)

I was tired and a bit sore from yesterday's workout, plus we have a busy morning with Katelyn's swim meet so I decided to sleep in and I will try to squeeze in a run later today.

8 miles in just at an hour.  Started off with Justin and Matthew and ran to SRL.  They turned around at 2.5 mile mark, I kept going to 3 miles and ended up catching them back about 0.1 from home.  I went back out for 2 slow miles,,.really feeling yesterdays workout.  (Fastwitch Red)
