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 easy untimed with Moxie on a very nice morning for a run.  Some pretty slow, some faster at an honest clip.  I will try to get another run in at lunch on the desert if time allows.  (Cortana Black)

4 easy miles in 28 minutes on a nice day for a run on desert...in shorts.  (Ride)

4:30am...7.5 easy miles with Moxie on a nice morning.  It must have been dog days as I only saw three other runners and they too had dogs running with them!  (Cortana Black)

6.25 miles around the greenbelt at lunch.  (Ride)

4:30am...7 easy miles with Moxie on a morning like the last few, very nice.  I almost turned around at 1 mile mark as my right legs was really creaky (knee, groin) but it settled down and I was able to pick up the pace.  I was thinking about a tempo run last night but my old body did not want to do that today.  Planning on a run with Gary at lunchtime today.  (Mirage)

6 miles in 42:45 with Gary on the greenbelt and through SRL.  A GREAT day for a run with good company, conversation and pace.  Hope this weather sticks around for a while!  (Ride)

2 miles with Justin after work.

I was very tired and felt pretty bad (fatigue, cough, achy) when the alarm went off so I slept in this morning.  After getting some coffee, a bite to eat and getting my son ready for school, I decided to get out for an easy run on a nice, warm morning.  I ran through SRL and back with and extended down Sunnyside at a pedestrian pace for the most part.  It was a bit cooler than I thought and my hands got cold but besides that I felt better for going for the run.  8 miles in 1:02.  (Cortana Black)

Now for some work at church, lunch with my girls and some errands then a run later with my wife and son.  2.5 miles to and from the Maverick store to get a movie to watch tonight.

6am...12.4 miles with Gray from his house up to the top of the hill and back through Iron Rim in 1:30.  Good hill workout, but I had a hard time getting going as this cold is settling into my chest and I have some congestion that made it a bit hard to take a deep breath and my energy level is really low.  Got it done though with good company and conversation.  Plus the view of the valley from the top was worth the climb! 

2.75 miles with Justin, Matthew and Moxie around the neighborhood on  a great morning.(Mirage)
