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.

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

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)
