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

Skipped the morning run to sleep in.  I was going to go short, but it was 21 degrees...so I bailed.  Going harder at lunch then maybe after work with Justin.

Conference call today with the nutritionist who is on the Nutrition Panel this weekend at the PowerBar booth...this is going to be fun!  The panel discussion takes place at 11:30am on Saturday and Sunday...stop by to say hi or heckle me!

Went out for my last tempo run before the Boston Marathon.  Ate a PowerBar Fruit EnergyBlend then out to the the run.  Ran 1 mile easy with Dan S. then into my 6 mile tempo.  I ran along the greenbelt to Bill's Bike and Run and stopped in for a PowerBar gel (testing my GI track for compatability for the race).  Splits: 5:54, 6:04, 6:00, 5:57, 6:02, 6:11 (slowed down on purpose) (right at 6:00 AP).  0.25M cooldown for 7.25 miles in 45:45 (6:18 AP).  Everything felt good and easy, including my hip (it may have been older shoes which I have retired).  (Mirage Red)

5:00am...went out on a nice morning with Moxie for a short easy run.  At the 4 mile turnaround, we saw Alana, Andrea, Curt, Gama and Shannon who were running 5 miles.  So I ran the rest of the way with them having some good conversation.  5 easy miles with good friends...hard to beat! (Ride 3)

5 mile easy progression run in 36:30 outside in windy and cool conditions.  Splits: 7:46, 7:28, 7:21, 7:13, 6:42.  Nice and easy and no issues...besides taper madness. (Mirage Red)

Moment of silence today at 12:49 MDT for those impacted by the Boston Bombing this day last year.

No run, travel day and Red Sox game!  We arrived in Boston around 4:30 and met Marlin and Mauri at the hotel.  We waited a bit for Lynette to arrive but she was having issues at the airport so we headed downtown to meet the crew at the game.  It was freezing out!  Fun to catch up with folks and have a Sausage and a brew, but man oh man we were cold.  Got back to the hotel really late and we were very tired.

No run, we slept in then went to the expo.  I had a great time meeting up with all my friends from PowerBar and beingn on the panel discussion at PowerBar with Josh Cox, Sarah Reinersten and Eric Zaltas.  A decent crowd but it could have been better.  Wow, was the expo crowded...we had to get out a couple of times just to stay sane.  Went to the Hoyt's presentation then lunch at the Pru then back to finish off the expo.  Highlight was stopping by the Athens Marathon expo and talking with a very nice Greek guy,  he gave us a finisher's medal from the 2011 Athens marathon for Justin!  

A very Busy day with a finish at Atlantic Fish Co. for our anniversary dinner.  On the way back to the hotel we stopped by the PowerBar Party at the Bell in Hand to say hi and talk with folks.  A nice time but would have been more fun if they had left it on Monday night.  Ate way to much and ended up puking that night due to too much food.  Also started to lose my voice and get a scratchy throat today.
