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

Stretching and rehab.  Leg feeling about 75% better...nearly ready to try a run again this week.

Spinning class after work with Kami (and Justin for a while until his leg hurt too much).  Good hard circuit workout.

Got to the gym early and tried to see how my leg would do with some easy running.  Got to 1/2 mile and pulled the plug as it started to tighten up.

Long good spinning morning before and in the class.  Speed interval day.

4:30am...45 minutes on the spinning bike, working on keeping a high turnover.  Good workout.  At home did stretches and rehab.  Still on the mend, nearly there.

2.25 miles doing a couple loops of Freeman Park on a beautful day at lunch.  Shin did ok, but I was not going any futher.  (Mirage Red)

5:30am...hard spinning class with some hill climbing (Lynette is a tough instructor!).  Good work.

Happy Anniversary to my wife, 22 years of awesome times!

25 mile bike ride with Kami on a beautiful day.  Took off from the house and rode up to Foothill Drive over to Lincoln and attacked the hill.  Turned around and came back the same way, only stopping for lunch with my beautiful and fast riding partner.  What a good day!

Watched Katelyn rock the track meet and run a 6:59 mile (14 second PR!)!

7:30am...I slept in a bit and waiting to go out with Justin (so I could run with him in case it hurt) and Moxie.  2.5 miles with Justin...he is doing ok but it was a bit tight for his calf.

I went back out for some more and finished off 7.25 mile with no pain!  Great to be back out at it especially on such a beautiful morning!  (Launch 2)

On a sad note, a cycling friend of Kami's passed away tragically last night.  

Good time tonight watching the Real Salt Lake soccer game at Rio Tinto!  Nice evening, great time with kids.  Nice walk to and from the hotel.
