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

I had a great time on a date with my daugther last night at the "daugther/daddy" dance at the church where my wife works...fun time treating my daughter like a princess!

After church today I went for a run with Gray...6 miles in 40 minutes for a great run.  Had a chance to catch up about church, service, running, strategy for the race next Sunday. 

Now off to volunteer at the senior's center helping with the chapel service that the chaplain who goes to our church coordinates...a good example for our kid's to see what it means to others to volunteer.

Taper week, so I slept in this mornig and went for a run at lunchtime...glad I did as it was 43 degrees, sunny but a bit windy.  I ran 6.5 miles in 47 minutes the whole time just having good conversation with Pat.  A good taper week run, just what I needed.

The worst night of sleep ever, I think I remember seeing every hour on the clock between 10pm and 4am.  Needless to say, getting up at 4 or 5am for a run was out of the question...I just hope I can stay awake at work.  Coffee, lots of coffee.   Glad this is a taper week so I won't worry too much about missing an easy run but if I can get some time I might go out for a few after work just to shake out the legs...if I am not asleep.

4 miles in 27:30 after work with Moxie on a nice evening for a run.  Started slow then sped up to goal MP for most of the last mile.  A good run considering how tired I am.  Really liking the Cortana, considering running the marathon in them this weekend to give them a try.

4:30am...4 easy miles with Moxie outside in 20 degree weather.  Just an easy taper run trying to focus on the toe off and push in my stride.

4:30am...easy run with Moxie on a warmer morning, but the pathways were icy from the light rain and near freezing temps.  A good easy run getting ready for the marathon Sunday.

I was notified this morning that I once again was invited to be on the PowerBar TeamElite sponsorship program for 2012/2013!   Now I just waiting to here back from Saucony as well, hopefully next week.

No problem making it the hotel even on the busy freeway. Nice hotel! Ate a pizza for dinner from a good local joint, Rubino's.

We drove to Tustin and ran on the trail along the drainage canal that runs from the hills to Newport beach. Easy paced on the way out then eased into goal MP for a couple of miles which felt pretty comfortable. Ate breakfast at a cool little local joint, the old vine cafe...awesome! Drove down to Huntington beach and previewed the course. Spent the day at the beach and walking around the town before going to the expo. Looks to be about 10 to 15 elites in the marathon. Some cool gear at the expo and talked to the PowerBar guy for a bit. We had a bite to eat and a beer before heading back to the hotel. Gray could not quite convince me to join him in a wheatgrass shot. A good day in great weather and good company.  (Cortana)

We slept in then went to the beach to run a bit of the course. After a few easy miles we had a nice breakfast at the Sugar Shack Cafe in town then some time at the expo.  (Cortana)

A couple of hours on the beach including boogie boarding. On the way back to the hotel stopped by Snails Pace running store.

A nice dinner at Nello Cucina then rest time getting prep for tomorrow before an early night.
