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

Nice easy 4.5M run early on a nice morning.  Had to hold myself to this, wanted to run more...will do a MP run at lunch today.  (T3)

Went out at lunch for a goal MP run.  When I started I knew it was going to be tough because I had intestinal issues right from the start and a consistent wind of about 20mph.  Made it to 1.5M and had to hit the restroom...helped but insides were still topsy-turvy for the remainder of the run.  End up with 5M at 30 minutes exactly, with mile 5 being my fastest at 5:55.  0.5M cool down at 6:35ish pace, hitting the total in 33:20 (avg. 6:04).  Not bad considering my stomach issues. (T2)

5M early this morning on a nice morning. A bit cool, but no wind or rain. Nice easy run at a 7:00 pace. Only run today...good thing because the weather is turning and it is now raining, windy and colder. (T3)

5M easy early this morning in about 36 minutes. Temp was cool and a bit of rain but no wind. Just nice and easy, glad I went this morning as the wind is picking up and making it feel colder. (T3)

5M run early this morning (4:30am).  Decent weather (cooler, no rain, a little wind) so I decided to go out early and do a progression run in my marathon shoes.  Good progression:  6:59, 6:48, 6:39, 6:30, 6:20.  Felt pretty easy for a morning run.  Might do another easy, easy 3M at lunch.  (Tangent 3)

Heading out tomorrow early, hoping the weather in Boston clears up for Monday!  Decent temps but rain projected.

3M at lunch around Freeman Park.  Had to get out of my office and get some fresh air.  Very easy and controlled, focused on goood toe-off form.  Good weather for the run as well.  (T2)

4M run with Andrea from hotel through Boston Common.  Nice and easy with some MP pickups just to loosen the legs.  Ran in my race shoes just to get the feel right. (Tangent 3)

Expo this afternoon with Andrea and Rocky.  Met their friends Matt and Leah (she is running) then out to Sam Adams Brewery for a tour and free beer!

Dinner with Lynette and Kory, Andrea and Rocky, McKay and Jennifer and Kami and I at Umbria (foo-foo Italian...good but pricey!).

Now for the about the coolest part of the trip.  At the expo, won a raffle...on a fluke.  I won the PowerBar Pro Pacer Raffle and got the opportunity to have 2 personal pacers for the entire race...Josh Cox (50K AR holder) for the first half and Peter Reid (3 time Kona Ironman World Champion) for the second half!  More details tomorrow.  Very stoked!
