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

5:45am...8 easy miles in Manhattan, MT on nice morning.  Peaceful run. (Ride 5)

Drove home to IF, went to the African Children's Choir concert and saw Auntie Eva whom we know from when the choir visited back in 2011!  Great organization and doing wonderful things for the kids of Africa and raising awareness in the US/Canada/UK.

I slept in and went out at 6:45am with Moxie on a glorious morning for 10K.  I came back and had some fuel then went out with Justin through SRL and back for another 7 miles.  Great morning for a run!  (Altra Impulse)

My back was really hurting last night and I was still a bit stiff this morning so I skipped the morning run to sleep in a bit and then stretched and rolled.

Beautiful day at lunch...sunny, not too warm, light breeze. 8.25 miles around the greenbelt and Freeman Park a couple of times.  57:20 (6:56 avg.)...started slower, last 4 full miles under 7:00 (6:31, 6:46, 6:48, 6:50). Good run, back and hips felt much better but I had some tightness in my right achilles.  (Altra Impulse)

Dan picked me up and we drove to the Menan Butte and ran the trails up to, around and through the crater just enjoying the scenery, company and natural setting.  Good 6 miles of fun running/hiking.  (Xodus)

Busy day...coffee with dad, last day of school activities, getting Kami ready for her century ride tomorrow, yardwork...3 mile shake out just to relax and have some down time. (Bikila)

5:15am...beautiful morning for a run...too bad is was such a crappy run.  6 miles with Moxie then dropped her off, pitstop, changed shoes then back out for 9 miles through SRL to the River Walk Trail (aka greenbelt).  Slow, sore, unmotivated.  I wanted to go a bit longer but my glute/hammy were just not up for it.  (Altra - 6, Mirage - 9)

Kami is riding the Little Red Century in Logan, we have 2 graduation parties, swim day at the pool (first time!), yardwork, etc.  A busy day today.  

Bike ride with the kids in the evening.
