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

I am still a bit fatigued and tired from being ill and my right foot is very sore for some reason.  Plus I had to leave for work really early which all lead to me skipping my morning run.  I will try to get one in at lunch and after work (with Justin or at the store).  Glad to be feeling better.

4 miles in 28 minutes out on the desert in between meetings.  Just was able to get this one in.  (Ride) 

4 miles after work really easy with Justin and his buddies on a fantastic evening.  (Cortana Black)

My foot was very sore when I got up this morning.  Since it was fairly nice outside, I thought I would do a very easy run to see if the foot was ok...it wasn't.  I made it to the corner of Sunnsyside and decided to to shut it down.  I had to even walk for a bit.  So, I am going to rest it this morning, see how it feels at lunch and probably just call it a day.  No need to push it.  (Mirage).

I woke up with the foot still a bit sketchy and a bit of congestion.  I had to get to work really early so I ran on the treadmill in the basement for 5 easy miles...ugh!  Foot did not hurt so that is a good sign.  (Mirage)

5 miles in 35:50 out on the desert on a nice noontime.  Cool, sunny and a bit windy but it was nice to get out and work out some frustrations.  (Ride)

3 miles after work along Sunnyside.  Very windy.  (Cortana Black)

I just couldn't get up this morning early to face a cold outside run or another run on the mill.  Plus my foot was a bit twingy again.  My wife dragged me out of bed and to the spinning class this morning.  It was a good workout but got me motivated to want to run again instead.  This was just one of those weeks where I was just off my game...hopefully a good long run tomorrow (or even a run later on today) will get me past my malaise. 

8 miles in 58 minutes on a nice afternoon with Moxie.  Up and back on Sunnyside in pleasant weather...just the run to get my mood up.  (Cortana Black)

17 miles this morning with Curt and Craig in 2:05. It was very cold (12 degrees) but calm. Two good things about this run...the company and it is over, not one of my better long runs as I had no energy.

3.65 miles with Justin, Moxie and Matthew through the neighborhood.  (Mirage)
