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 from competitive racing.

Married for 26 years with two children (20 and 17).

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

14 miles up and down City Creek with Rob Murphy.  What a great run!  Took a detour to stop and see the State Capitol.  Ran into a couple of running friends from IF at the end of our run.  Great time with a great friend.  (Mirage 2)

Slept in and went out a little later after sunrise.  6 miles solo in just under 45 minutes, mostly easy but a few pushing up the pace.

Went back out with my family from the park.  I ran 0.5M with Kami and Katelyn then Justin and I took off down the trail after a rabbit.  We ran some fast segments (5:30 or under for some long stretches)!  Ran back into Katelyn and Kami and ran about 1 mile easy with them before charging  back up the hill at sub 8:00 pace.  6 miles in just under 45 minutes!  Good run (again).  (Launch)

Now for pool time with family and friends (Hudman's!).

6:30am....met Craig at the city center park (SGM finish line) and drove up to Ledges Parkway.  We ran down the trail back to the park, last part of the marathon course.  Nice run in under an hour for 8.35 miles.

Got home and took the family out.  Justin and I ran about 4.25 miles along the pathway from the park.  (Launch 2)

Another relaxing day at the pool and playing at the sports complex.

6am...3.5 miles with Moxie. Dropped her off at home then ran to the store to run with the group.  Ran about 13 miles with Gray and others (Katie, Tim, Eric, etc.) on a big loop down Pancheri and Bellin then onto the canal bank then a river loop.  Stopped for a mini break at the store then the rest home really slow as I was getting tired.  About 8:00 AP with some faster stuff with Gray in the middle.  (Launch 2)

2 miles with Katelyn, then 2 more solo (some with Justin and Kami) to finish off 90 for the week.  (Ride 3 2015)
