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

We slept in the went to Palm Sunday service at a very nice local church.  We we came back, I went for a run and Kami joined me on a bike.  5 miles in 36 minutes.  Afterwards spent time by the pool and hanging out with Kevin and Sonja.  Made a very nice dinner and had a great day.

We got up early and met Richard Hirst and his wife Cheryl...great time!

We spent the whole day at Universal Studios and focused on all the Harry Potter areas.  Fun but long and VERY crowded.  Left several hourse before closing and when we got back to Kevin's Katelyn ended up with food poisoning and not sleeping well.

We slept in and I took Kevin to work.  Afterwards Justin and I went for a run along the beach and had a great talk and fun time for 6 miles.  Then I went for out with Kami for 2.5 miles to the beach and back.

We spent time at the beach then we met Kevin's neighbors and borrowed the 2 person kayak.  We went out to the Grand Canal and saw dolphins and manatees!  Katelyn was overjoyed!!  

What a fun day (better than Universal)...hoping my family wants to do this again rather than Universal Studios tomorrow.

3am (EST) wakeup to get to airport for a 6am flight.  Very long line at checkin (we checked in curb side instead) then a quick TSA precheck to get to the gate.  Long drive to IF from SLC after the 5 hour flight.

6 miles with Moxie on a very nice day after unloading.  have to get used to the altitude again!
