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

A new PR by 5min! Overall felt great afterwards, the best after any marathon so far!  Goal time was 2:45 and I was able to beat that by over 3 minutes. 

Splits: 1-6:09, 2-6:04, 3-5:58, 4-5:57, 5-5:57, 6-6:00, 7-6:00, 8-5:58, 9-6:11, 10-6:10, 11-6:21, 12-6:10, 13-6:17, 14-6:09, 15-6:29, 16-6:14, 17-6:19, 18-5:55, 19-6:06, 20-6:10, 21-6:11, 22-6:00, 23-5:40, 24-6:11, 25-6:33, 26-6:32, 0.2-2:04 (0.34M on my GPS).

This course is probably the best I have ran so far. I saw Paul P. and his friends at the start and I was able to hook up with a few guys for the first 14 miles (thanks Ted and James) which really helped.  The first half felt very easy and controlled, running great.  At 14M we hit the hill and I decided to push the pace up and charged up hoping that Ted and James would come along.  I ran pretty easy through mile 18, then came the new real downhill and let it out again and caught Logan at aroun 18.5M.  I ran well through the rest of canyon and let it out again for mile 23 (wasn't expecting a 5:40, but I will take it).  At 24M hit the parkway and slowed due to the heat, flat and crowd (trying to bust through the walkers during this section kind of sucked).  Turned onto Grant and could see the finish and started to speed up. Saved a kick for when my GPS ticked off 26M and then pushed with what I had left at about a 6:09 pace).
