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

8 miles with Moxie in about 56 minutes on a nice morning before church.  

Long frustrating day at the church meeting...Kami and I went to the gym to lift weights while the kids were at a church activity.  It didn't burn off the stress.

4:00am...4 easy miles with Moxie in 30 minutes on a cool morning (15 degrees).  Short run before an early flight for a quick business trip.

8.25 miles in 1:00:30 after a long day of meetings.  55 degrees so I ran in short sleeves!  A good run.  (Mirage)

No early morning run due to a very early departure to the airport. I will run this afternoon outside in the nice weather.

7 miles in 51 minutes just as a storm was starting to blow in, so the run back from SRL was a bit windy and tough.

4:15am...to the gym for an up-tempo run.  1 mile easy warmup, then MP progression to mile 7.  From 7-10 bumped up to threshold pace or better (5:42) with 2 quarters at VO2Max (4:30, 4:18) to finish the 10 mile run in 59:50 (5:59 average).  Felt really good and mostly easy for the run.

4:15am...1 degree outside, headed to the gym.  Typical TM run, 1 mile warmup, 2 miles at MP then (19:30 for the first 3M) then a pit stop.  Back on the TM for another 8 miles in 47:15 (5:54 average) progression with a 0.5M pickup at 4:30 pace.  11 miles total in 1:06:45 for a 6:04 average. (Tangent 1)

6 miles in 37:40 at lunch.  It was a cool but glorious day for a run.  Easy pace with about 0.75M running with Saige at a very slow pace (she is 9 months pregnant and ready to have her baby any day...and she is out running in the cold!).  (TSD5)

4:30am...cold outside so I again headed to the gym.  This was a tough run this morning as I was tired and stressed out from the church meeting last night (and thinking about the next week or so).  I nearly didn't even get out of bed, then the first 5 miles were hard mentally.  Finally started feeling like running after that and just set mini-goals to keep going (8 miles...done, 10 miles...done, just one more!).  Nice to have Curt running next to me to talk for a bit.  Also saw Andrea, Marlin and Mauri.  (Mirage)

Day off today, but have to get some church work done then hopefully have some time to just chill for a bit. 

4 miles in the late afternoon in 30:25 with Moxie.  Warmer, sunny and calm...a nice easy run to keep stress level down. (TSD5)

Looking forward to watching the Trials tomorrow, it should be exciting!!

I woke up with a bit of a stiff back (stress related) and to temps hovering around 10 degrees, so I opted for a TM run today (even though I was going longer).

Got to the gym and saw Curt and Lynette already there, then Marlin showed up shortly after I started.  To get through my planned 16 mile run, I broke it up into 2 8 mile segments.  I ran the first in 51 minutes for an easy 6:22 pace.  This was very manageable and fun as I talked with Marlin for most of the run.  I took a little break to hydrate and stretch (2 minutes), then started the second 8 mile segment much faster.  The second 8 miles was completed in 47 minutes (5:53 pace) progressing from 6:11 pace to 5:25 pace.  This was bit tougher as my back was getting more stiff but manageable.  Overall 16 miles in 1:38 (6:08 pace)...a good run.

Going to Gray's house for a running group get together to watch the Olympic Trials coverage this afternoon, looking forward to the time with the group and seeing the race!
